VALDERRAMA, José O; SANCHEZ, Ángel y URREJOLA, Santiago. International Academic Collaboration Program on Information Technology and Virtual Teaching. Form. Univ. [online]. 2009, vol.2, n.6, pp. 3-13. ISSN 0718-5006. doi: 10.4067/S0718-50062009000600002.
The founding and development of an international academic collaboration program on information technology and virtual teaching between the University of La Serena in Chile and the University of Vigo in Spain is described and analyzed. The project is financed by the International Development Cooperation Spanish Agency (AECID) within the Interuniversity Cooperation Program between Spain and Ibero America. The project, aimed to improve engineering teaching, is being developed under a general collaboration agreement signed by both universities and that has been active for some years. The tasks done until now are discussed, but most important is that such tasks are analyzed with a long term perspective. The steps that will follow in this project are also defined and the importance of these actions in the formation of the engineers of the XXI century is highlighted.
