ALFA Academic Cooperation Program between the European Union and Latin America. European Commission

Dates: march 2007- september 2009

Coordinators: Beatriz Malik (UNED) and Sergio Téllez (Universidad Veracruzana)

Ref: II-0534-A


The purpose of the ALFA INTER project is to generate a space for Euro-Latin American cooperation between participating institutions and to improve the training available in higher education in the sphere of Intercultural Education, in both its formal and informal dimensions. The objective is to prepare a training program at the university graduate level, starting out from a needs analysis of the partipating instutions, using these institutions’ contributions.

The specific objective is, therefore, to design and prepare a proposal for training at the Euro-Latin American university graduate level on the subject of Intercultural Education. In order to achieve this, a diagnosis has been made of the situation (needs analysis) in each of the countries of the participating institutions. This initial analysis will allow us to identify priority lines of action in the sphere we are dealing with: graduate training in intercultural education. The graduate program designed will offer two possibilities: a) in-person attendance (at the participating institutions) and b) distance attendance (an online learning community).
