PACHECO MENDEZ, Teresa. Formación de profesionales e investigación social en Latinoamérica. Sinéctica [online]. 2010, n.35, pp.1-10. ISSN 2007-7033.

Up to only a few decades ago, the processes of production of the knowledge in the Latin American region had been developed in a practically exclusive way in the higher education institutions, characterizing itself like a subordinated area of the science field decisions. At present, the generation of knowledge in the region has gone gradually moving towards positions that are far to reach those sectors that traditionally regulated their effect and incidence in the different strata of society. From the sociology of the institutions in this paper we discuss how this re-positioning of knowledge leads inevitably to wonder where the identity is emerging not only for higher education institutions but also for the actors who participate in it, establishing through the training and social research activities, a new ways to articulate local, regional and worldwide scopes. It is necessary to indicate that this work assembles a set of reflections ensued from research products realized during the last two decades.

Keywords : training and social research; producing knowledge; higher education.
