SANDI DELGADO, Juan Carlos  e  CRUZ ALVARADO, Mainor Alberto. Teaching and learning methodological proposal to innovate higher education. InterSedes [online]. 2016, vol.17, n.36, pp.153-189. ISSN 2215-2458.

This research is based on the analysis of the different cognitive theories, which aims at developing a methodological proposal that leads to an innovating teaching and learning process in higher education using ICTs. This proposal integrates both: traditional cognitive methodologies and constructivist sociocultural methodologies, which were considered to strengthen the teaching-learning process in higher education.

This analysis was accomplished considering the action-investigation approach from planning, acting, observing and reflecting which, in turn, produces changes in the educational processes, so that the teacher’s performance and the learner’s acquisition of content can be improved. Evans (2010) states: “The action-investigation approach promotes a new way of acting, starts an effort to innovating and enhancing our job, which has to be analyzed, evaluated and reflected on permanently (p.21)”.

A theoretical analysis of different learning paradigms -from Pavlov and Skinner’s Behaviourism to Ausubel, Piaget and Vygotsky's Constructivist theories - was done in order to develop an innovative teaching-learning methodology in which the teachers will have to adopt a school leadership in order to maximize the cognitive processes.

It is important to highlight that the methodology used can be adapted to be applied by teachers of other disciplines.
