About The Certificate

The goal of this advanced faculty development program is for University of Guadalajara professors to critically and confidently integrate open strategies and activities in their courses.

Through the use of plenary sessions, collaborative teamwork and experiential learning, the program will provide learners with the tools they need to meaningfully plan, design, implement and share open education concepts in the classroom and/or at the University. The professors will be expected to collaborate, share, and contribute openly to a community of practice that fosters the culture of open at UdG.


By the end of this course, learners will be able to:

  1. Distinguish between openly licensed resources and resources on the internet
  2. Distinguish between intellectual property and the various CC licenses
  3. Describe the benefits and challenges of open
  4. Search, create, adapt, and reuse open education resources (CREA)
  5. Apply concepts of open – open pedagogy, open teaching, open scholarship – to their discipline
  6. Apply technologies to create and share open education resources
  7. Apply quality criterion to open education resources
  8. Collaborate with their peers to design, and implement open activities
  9. Develop an awareness of what it means to be an open scholar
  10. Participate in open communities in Latin America and Mexico context


In a lead up to our week together, we invite both participants and the larger world of those around the world interested in open education, to take on our twitter-based responses to Daily Openers — keep informed of these and other details by following @muraludg.

We also invite you to join in discussions by responding to five questions in Contestar, our web based conversation space.

The week’s activities are framed around the following topics:

Each day will include a variety of hands on activities and engagement with special invited guests, each leading to participants working in groups to suggest ideas around open education that UDG might take on at a systemic level. This ideas will be shared as “recipes” the Acumlador.

On the last day of the week, a voting process will nominate the best recipes to advanced, reviewed, and reworked in the Chopped Challenge.
