Summary

Although Latin American society has gained greater access to education at all levels, government officials in education, schoolteachers, trainers and researchers are calling into question the ability of their higher education institutions (HEIs) to address education professionals' needs. Typically, such groups criticize the bureaucracy of HEI training programmes, their failure to address practice as well as theory and the lack of commitment to society. Regional meetings between education specialists have identified other weaknesses in these programmes, including the following: the poor development of trainees’ professional skills; inadequate training in civic values, competencies for the globalized world and ITC skills; and, in general, the failure to engage in curricular reform). To address the situation, the 2021 Education Goals adopted in 2008 by education ministers in Ibero‐America prioritized “strengthening the teaching profession”.The interuniversity TO-INN Programme adopts a systemic approach to ensuring quality in HEI programmes for trainee educators. It does this by prioritizing the development of programmes with socially and professionally relevant teaching content that encourage trainee educators to play an active role in their learning and make institutions more innovative in policymaking. the Programme comprises 22 institutions from a total of 12 countries (16 institutions from Latin America and six from the EU). The TO-INN Programme is organized along four axes: 1) Culture and tradition; 2) Citizenship and participation; 3) Social cohesion and 4) Digital culture. Taking Spanish as its common language, TO-INN aims to promote well-fundamented changes in university training programmes by creating a virtual platform for collaborative work and learning. This platform will be used to revise curricula structures and frameworks, develop teaching and learning strategies and create a network for HEIs to ensure relevance in curricula content.
