APARICIO LOPEZ, José Luis  and  RODRIGUEZ ALVISO, Columba. Environmental Curricular Mainstreaming Strategy in Higher Education Through Curricular Design Committees. RIDE. Rev. Iberoam. Investig. Desarro. Educ [online]. 2019, vol.10, n.19, e018.  Epub May 15, 2020. ISSN 2007-7467.

The environmental problem represents a challenge for educational institutions, which must be addressed from all its functions, especially in teaching and research. In this work it is presented the experience of the conformation of curriculum design committees as a strategy to develop the curricular mainstreaming of the environment axis in higher education study plans at the Autonomous University of Guerrero, Mexico. Through the action research method, collaborative work was carried out with committees of 15 educational programs in two cycles (2012-2013 and 2016-2017). As a result, a strategy divided into four stages is proposed: a) conformation of the committee; b) diagnosis of the presence of the environment in the curriculum; c) curricular mainstreaming of the environment axis; and d) definition of the graduate profile and development of the learning unit program. Two instruments for its implementation accompany the strategy. It concludes in the need to give continuity to the proposal, strengthen it and generalize it in the other higher education educational programs of the university, as well as start a new research cycle.

Keywords : curricular design; higher education; research-action; environment; curricular mainstreaming.
