Academic Program

The XXIV RECLA International Summit convenes Presidents, Vice Presidents, Directors of continuing education, as well as Faculty, other academics and the general public from Ibero-american Higher Education Institutions. Participants will find an academic agenda that discusses the challenges of continuing education online.

Advances in technology, new pedagogical trends and changing target groups are leading many centers of continuing education to consider the implementation of online strategies across the whole range of their programs.

The program comprises presentations from national and international experts, practical workshops and case studies from a wide range of universities on these overarching themes:

  • Pedagogical and didactic challenges and how to approach them
  • Management strategies and policies for continuing education online
  • Design and evaluation of online user experience
  • Innovation and the future of continuing education online
