Quality and professional development - The thesis of this book is that the University develops a formative task at the higher levels as required, in order to be effective, with regard to institutional conditions as well as the capacitation of their personnel. The formative mission of each university institution is concretized and carried out in its curricular offer and its quality of formation, for its part, it will depend in good measure on the performance of the teachers. Today it is beyond doubt that good teaching requires command of different competencies on the part of the teachers of each faculty or school. The “university curriculum”, the “teaching skills” and the “analysis of the teaching quality” are the three big parts in the book. Ten competencies that summarize the most important aspects of the university professors’ activity are analysed. Competencies that can serve as a mark of reference for a possible program of qualification of the university professors.
