Participando en la Universidad – Assessing the Assessment

Dear Earthlings:
Here’s what yours truly made for her community at UPR Mayaguez.  A Facebook group to assess the assessment the government made without consulting the communities.  A space to speak up and participate in the creation of the university WE want!
Listen to the description, and sign up for the group if you are a member of the UPR Mayaguez community and have a Facebook profile in your name.

“The group Participando en la Universidad – Assessing the Assessment is a forum to assess the assessment of the UPR system presented in the document “Cambio de Rumbo para la Pertinencia de la Educacion Superior en el Siglo 21,” published on December 12, 2012, and its recommendations. 

The group is open to faculty, administrators, employees, and students of the UPR community at Mayaguez with a Facebook profile in their own name.

The document to be assessed, often known as “Golpe de Timon,” is the result of a study of the system commissioned by the Governor of Puerto Rico, Mr. Fortuno, to assess the state of the system and offer recommendations.  The group of “experts” who did the study was entirely appointed by the Governor and his administration. 

The study is multifaceted and intelligent.  However, it does not include contributions from members, participants, constituencies and sectors in the university community, nor the associations that represent them.  This is a major flaw. 

The present group is intended as a forum, an open discussion space for those contributions to be heard.  It is a bilingual space of participation in creating the university we really want.  It is a digital space for the assessment of the document that claims to assess the UPR system without the contributions the university community can make.  The idea of this open participation in the assessment of the system and design of its future is part of CUNAPU’s directive to generate the free participation we want in both digital and presential ways.This group is a forum to assess the assessment of the UPR system presented in the document “Cambio de Rumbo para la Pertinencia de la Educacion Superior en el Siglo 21,” published on December 12, 2012, and its recommendations.

Please consider that the document is not difficult to read at all.  Of the 144 pages, only some 40 are analysis and recommendations, the rest is appendices, notes, and work cites list.

The same link above leads to some of the most important digest and comment articles about the document in the PR press.
