DIAZ BARRIGA, ÁNGEL. El profesor de educación superior frente a las demandas de los nuevos debates educativos. Perfiles educativos [online]. 2005, vol.27, n.108, pp.9-30. ISSN 0185-2698.

The new teaching proposals have stormed into the educational literature, leading to some kind of confusion amongst the teachers, who do not necessarily reckon on enough parameters to distinguish the prior assumptions which underlie to every one of them or the real benefits they offer by implementing them within the classroom. Psychopedagogy, didactics, educational politics and the development of new technologies generate diverse innovation proposals which should be worth analyzing in order to weigh up their value. In Mexico it is impossible to settle an innovation and to analyze afterwards its impact on teaching, since we live in a maelstrom of new proposals that do not achieve to become concrete as new ways to work at school. In this article the autor explores a variety of situations faced by the higher education teacher when he meets those innovations. Its underlying purpose is to promote a reflexion able to invite the teacher to work in a more deliberate way with some of those proposals, since he/she has to understand that it is impossible to implement them all in a specific moment.

Keywords : Higher Education ; Teaching; Didactics ; Educational Innovation ; Mexico.
