PROPOSAL OF A NEW IBEROAMERICAN NETWORK FOCUSED ON ETHICAL DIMENSION OF UNIVERSITY EDUCATION

People demands more professionals committed with an equitable and sustainable development of their country. University professors are facing with the "crisis of values" and seek to ensure a solid moral formation among their students. Ethics education should not be regarded as just a "desirable complement" to professional training, but it should be considered as a central axis of the new professional. The aim of the present work is to create an Iberoamerican network of scientific cooperation in ethical competences. This network would serve as a tool to exchange knowledge and experiences between members of different universities.

The steps for creating this network would be:
I) contextualize the teaching profession in the ethical dimension of training new professionals, in response to the new social demands concerning ethics;
ii) Identification and analysis of both general and specific ethical competencies of each discipline in which new professionals should be trained;
iii) design, implement and evaluate possible ways to make viable the consolidation of this project.
iv) the development of the evaluation methodology;
v) the evaluation of the project.
