MetaDocencia means MetaTeaching in Spanish. I am a co-founder and part of the MetaDocencia’s Core Team. In addition to fulfilling a leadership role, I also generate content, new courses, teach classes, translate material from English to Spanish, and mentor people within the community.
We are an inclusive and collaborative community that improves education by empowering instructors from underserved countries.
We are a non-profit organization that nurtures a community of Spanish-speaking educators by teaching concrete, evidence-based, and student-centered educational methods. We collaboratively develop open, reusable, and accessible resources to foster effective training practices.
We aim to share practical tools to help teachers to improve their classes. We teach online synchronous workshops in Spanish. We designed these workshops with higher education teachers in mind, but instructors teaching outside of higher education and students who want to collaborate in classes can also participate.
Our virtual courses are short and centered in the design of materials and classroom management to maximise students’ learning without anyone getting exhausted.
All our courses are free and our materials are openly licensed. That is, you can reuse or edit any material, with the condition that you include a reference to this website in any material you generate by reusing our content.
Our courses help to improve the learning process both in in-person and online classes. We use modern evidence-based teaching techniques that improve educational outcomes.
In addition, we aim to create a cross-disciplinary knowledge-sharing teaching community. We know, and the evidence also supports, that better results are obtained when we teach together.
We will award certificates of attendance to each course in digital format to those who have participated in at least 80% of the course.
We are guided by these teaching principles:
We follow this code of conduct.
Part of our course materials are based on RStudio Education materials.
