CALDERON-MAYORGA, César; RUIZ-PALMERO, Julio  and  SANCHEZ-RODRIGUEZ, José. Integration of Information and Communication Technologies in a Flexible Teaching Model: The case of the University Center of the Valleys of Guadalajara, Mexico. Form. Univ. [online]. 2016, vol.9, n.5, pp.37-48. ISSN 0718-5006.

The aim of this study is to analyze the use of technology that professors of the University Center of the Valleys of Guadalajara in Mexico are employing to comply with the flexible teaching model of the Center. The reason for their use and the difficulties encountered in their implementation are specially discussed. A descriptive and mixed type methodology is used including questionnaires and interviews, comparing results for the different majors. In this way the main uses of the flexible teaching model were identified, finding that, despite the importance of this educational model for the institution, technology is not properly used. With the results of the study should be extended to other degrees in order to establish actions to help improving their use by teachers for the benefit of students.
