VILLAGOMEZ RODRIGUEZ,, María Sol. Other pedagogies: The experience of the Bilingual Intercultural Education-UPS. Alteridad [online]. 2018, vol.13, n.1, pp.30-41. ISSN 1390-8642.

Many of the experiences of Latin American indigenous higher education have a trajectory that arises as a response to the historical struggles of indigenous peoples for their right to education. The first ones address the need for teacher training for self-education and Intercultural Bilingual Education (EIB), as is the case of the EIB Career at the Salesian Polytechnic University of Ecuador (UPS), which has a track record of over of twenty years in the training of teachers of the Kichwa and Achuar people. In the educational experience of the UPS EIB Career, “Other Pedagogies” are configured, based on the educational needs of the subjects and groups that are educated. For this reason, they emerge from contexts, struggles, resistances and participation. They are dynamic and under construction pedagogies that emerge from the practices and are configured as alternative pedagogical responses to conventional pedagogies. The objective of this work is to make explicit the “Other” pedagogies that are delineated in the EIB Career experience in particular. For this, the reflection from the testimony of the actors, are categorized four pedagogies: 1. identity reaffirmation; 2. “go to return”; 3. “between cultures” and 4. “awareness of oppression”.

Keywords : Intercultural education; teacher training; indigenous higher education; “other pedagogies”; interculturality; intercultural pedagogy.
