Ejercicios necesarios en la Universidad

Dos semanas atrás la Universidad de Colima convocó a la realización de un foro para analizar su proceso de internacionalización, a partir de dos temas: la movilidad y la calidad. Participé en la organización y escuché los debates en dos de las mesas de trabajo, una con estudiantes y profesores; la otra, con profesores. Posteriormente, al cierre del foro, escuché las relatorías y pude tener una visión general; por eso decidí comentar aquí algunas ideas en torno al hecho y los temas.

En principio, la convocatoria tuvo una respuesta satisfactoria, por el número y calidad de los participantes, así como por la cantidad y nivel de las ponencias presentadas en las cuatro mesas de trabajo. Entre los estudiantes y profesores percibí una valoración positiva de los avances de la Universidad en el tema de la movilidad, no exenta de cuestionamientos válidos y pertinentes. Aunque persiste la pregunta por el sentido de movilizarse, las ventajas expresadas son insoslayables.

Queda claro, sin embargo, que el proceso de internacionalización de la Universidad, inevitable hoy para las universidades del mundo en desarrollo, no se puede reducir solo a la movilidad semestral de estudiantes y a estancias cortas o viajes académicos de los profesores. Está fuera de discusión que en el proceso debe involucrarse la institución en su conjunto. También está claro que no se puede internacionalizar una universidad sin una base de calidad adecuada, y que para hacerlo se requiere, primero, respuestas efectivas y pertinentes al entorno local.

Escuchar en la mesa de profesores las ponencias y los intercambios fue interesante, enriquecedor e ilustrativo de cuánto hemos avanzado, probablemente sin darnos cuenta. En ejercicios de tal naturaleza, de discusión e intercambio entre profesores universitarios, cabe esperar todo, menos elogios vanos, sí, en cambio, señalamientos críticos de lo que no funciona adecuadamente, y aunque no es lo más común, compromisos compartidos entre los profesores y de ellos con la institución.

De todo eso hubo un poco en el foro que comento, pero la parte que me resultó más sugerente, para analizar y asumir tareas inmediatas, fue el resumen con las opiniones vertidas en las mesas con estudiantes de otras instituciones y países que toman cursos en Colima. Ellos, desde otra experiencia y otros referentes, son un valioso espejo para mirar nuestras imperfecciones. De ese grupo me llevo, esta vez, la gran lección de los pendientes que tiene la Universidad de Colima de cara a un mundo de competencias donde la mediocridad y la irresponsabilidad deparan un lugar solo al lado del camino. Allí está el gran reto para los siguientes años.

    Teacher,from the principle I was anxiously to read some ideas mentioned and left me with doubt.

    Ask the foreigners would not hurt.

    Well, I not gone exchange but if I noticed improvements with more korean.

    I am grateful for the CITI,I admit not make my better effort, I would like that the english was a class mandatory, that it is in all professions gives seriousness but little time I feel like saying,”Internationalize the UCOL,but not guarantee that our studient understand”,because only taught them me four hour in the week and class sometimes suspended, more holidays.

  2. Daniela Moctezuma Garcia 1A dice:

    Like my partner, left me with doubt to know the ideas that were discussed.

    I think would be good that university give more opportunities of exchanges.

    To give opportunity to more country, and that outside longer exchange time.

    Thanks to this forums the university can get an idea of the deficiencies that we have.

  3. Marco Antonio Lopez Mendoza 1B dice:

    Me personally I love the idea, Dr. yañez of internationalization of the U of C that I think are chances that this institution continues to grow along with students and teachers and better internationally and is recognized by other schools most renowned. just fills me with pride that some students from other countries come here choose to continue their academic studies if only for a little season.

  4. jose adrian contreras ocaranza 1A dice:

    Sounds good to come together to see and solve problems.

    In this forum can hear many exchanges of ideas that might be interesting.

    In my opinion,I think this forum is well mad,because we can realize that we were moving.

    Make good relation with international companies is a good idea to test our skills.

    I need to practice my english a lot.

    Make an exchange trip would be very interesting for me.

  6. Jever Amezcua Garcia 1D dice:

    Mobility is a great tool because it allows us to meet several people and learn another culture.

    It also lets you acquire new learning from different people.

    That is one reason why it is very useful to know English.

    And it can be helpful to practice a language other than Spanish.

  7. David Toledo Zúñiga 1B dice:

    Students must have more opportunities.
    I think that University of Colima need some changes to be better.
    We have to see that defects has the University to remove them.
    University of Colima is one of the best in Mexico and we should be proud of our University.

  8. It’s necesary that students could travel to other counties easily, because there are the real opportunities to grow. Mexicans aren’t really competitive and this incopetence could be a short way but a wrong and permanent decision.

  9. Miguel Arias Sandoval 1A dice:

    “Internationalize” this is a word very complex, but something not impossible.

    The Ucol has the element necessary to make.

    For ucol can internationalize iis necessary the participation of all people.

    But even more students and teachers.

  10. JOSE EDUARDO CORTES CERNAS 1B dice:

  12. Saul Alejandro Jimenez Mendoza 1ºA dice:

    There should be more exchanges.

    I would like to do an article on the issues discussed at the meeting.

    Should take the opinion of all students.

    Before internationalizing the university, we have to improve both students and teachers

  18. Sergio Rodrigo Ceceña Lares 1b dice:

    No doubt this will benefit everyone.

  22. Jorge Caballero 1 "D" dice:

    We certainly have a lot to learn.

    I think it’s great that university think about beign international.
    The opinion of students and teachers of other countries will be a great help to see what are we doing wrong.
    Also, sharing our opinions with teachers and authorities can make a solution for some problems.

  24. Amayelli Itzel Silva Contreras 1D dice:

    1 University quality is of great importance as it mobility.
    2 Teachers and students must show good quality around the educational and moral.

  27. Jose Manuel Tapia Gonzalez 1A dice:

    We have that follow driving the university.
    As?, maybe ensuring that to the leave of baccalaureate the students have a better level in English.
    I think that the solution is in the teachers.
    But also in the students.

  29. Eduardo Jimenez 1D dice:

    I think it should give more time to students of exchange for at leas to continue the “thread” of other cultures.
