Abstract

Teaching and learning are activities that require specific skills. People with training in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics who teach statistics and related disciplines often lack adequate pedagogical training during their training. This situation worsened due to the COVID-19 pandemic, especially among teachers from less favored countries. MetaDocencia is an interdisciplinary teaching community that seeks to support Spanish-speaking teachers by promoting concrete, evidence-based, student-centered teaching methods. In 26 months we developed five courses with open licenses and gave 81 free editions of these courses reaching 1,163 teachers from 30 countries. People who passed through our courses express high satisfaction (Net Promoter Score > 80%) and find them practical, useful and novel (97% indicated they learned something new). Enseñar y aprender son actividades que requieren habilidades específicas. Las personas con formación en Ciencia, Tecnología, Ingeniería y Matemáticas que enseñan estadística y disciplinas relacionadas suelen carecer del entrenamiento pedagógico adecuado durante su formación. Esta situación se agravó debido a la pandemia de COVID-19, en especial entre docentes de países menos favorecidos. MetaDocencia es una comunidad de enseñanza interdisciplinaria que busca apoyar a docentes hispanohablantes mediante el fomento de métodos educativos concretos, basados en evidencia y centrados en sus estudiantes. En 26 meses desarrollamos cinco cursos con licencias abiertas y dictamos 81 ediciones gratuitas de estos cursos alcanzando a 1.163 docentes de 30 países. Las personas que pasaron por nuestros cursos manifiestan alta satisfacción (Net Promoter Score > 80%) y los encuentran prácticos, útiles y novedosos (97% indicó que aprendieron algo nuevo).
