A NEW CURRICULUM FOR THE BACCALAUREATE PROGRAM BASED IN COMPETENCIES: A COLLABORATIVE EXPERIENCE IN THE SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL SYSTEM OF THE UNIVERSITY OF GUADALAJARA, MÉXICO

This article presents the experience in curriculum design developed for the Baccalaureate Program for the Senior High School System of the University of Guadalajara in 2003-2006, in the state of Jalisco, western México. The objectives of the reform included the actualization of the 1992 curriculum that had been in operation for over 11 years without actualization in 114 high schools with 106 thousand students, as well as its adaptation according to the new academic model of the university based in competencies.

1263 teachers of the university collaborated in the curriculum design process according to their teaching experience and their discipline expertise to develop a new baccalaureate program to be implemented in the high schools administrated by the University of Guadalajara in the state of Jalisco.

This paper presents the methodological procedure used and the epistemological theory in which the curriculum design was based. It also describes the experiences of the collaborative multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary teamwork; the challenges, difficulties and achievements of the project during the three year period, and the final curriculum designed with the participation of students, parents, school administrators, employers and external consultants.
