Learning processes in the context of development and globalization. For a quality concept based on planetary interdependencies
AbstractThe quality of learning seems to be the secret of success for educational systems, and it makes no sense to make war to send all people to the school or the university where useless knowledge is taught; with outdated or even repressive methodologies.
But the definition of quality has to be thought at the light of challenges posed to the shifting and globalization of educational processes, as that cannot be seen anymore as a tecnocratic-economic perspective. The concept of quality, founded on the planetary interdependencies, put educational systems in front of
the need of cooperating to generate networks of collective intelligence that points to the sustainability and social inclusion. In that sense, higher education changes from a fordist and post-fordist vision towards a new post-colonial scenery, that
claims for an approach based on new models of interaction between teaching, learning, innovation, and mainly, of networking strategies among institutions from several points of glocal territories.
