Inglés como medio de instrucción para la internacionalización del currículo: motivos y expectativas de docentes

Inglês como meio de instrução para a internacionalização do currículo: motivos e expectativas dos professores

Publicado
2024-01-01

Este artículo presenta los resultados de una investigación que se propuso analizar los motivos y las expectativas de docentes de una universidad pública en el noroeste de México al participar en la internacionalización del currículo mediante el uso de inglés como medio de instrucción (EMI por sus siglas en inglés), el análisis se basa a partir de las variables, atales como disciplina, antigüedad laboral, tipo de contratación y frecuencia de enseñanza en inglés. Se empleó una metodología mixta para analizar datos cuantitativos y cualitativos, recopilados mediante un instrumento digital dirigido a un total de 42 profesores que estaban acreditados para impartir asignaturas en inglés, y se obtuvieron 36 cuestionarios completos respondidos. Los resultados permiten concluir que la mayor parte de los profesores de todas las disciplinas están de acuerdo en que su principal motivo para participar en la internacionalización mediante uso de emi es “apoyar iniciativas institucionales”; en contraste, “recibir incentivos económicos por parte de programas institucionales” fue un motivo de participación con diferencias marcadas según la disciplina y el tipo de contratación. El análisis cualitativo concluye la existencia de concepciones positivas en torno a este tipo de enseñanza, por ser favorable para la universidad y como posible fuente de remuneración económica. Aunque los docentes manifiestan una motivación intrínseca hacia la formación y enseñanza en inglés, la falta de incentivos económicos igualitarios podría ser una causante de la participación limitada del docente.
