In view of the diversity of serious problems overwhelming present – day society, university faculties become all-important elements in the training of human resources able to keep up with a world going through perpetual change. The formidable increase in admission rates in Latin-American universities has led in turn to the expansion of the faculties and brought to the classrooms teachers lacking the training and the background necessary for effectively playing their role as educators. This situation has given rise to the development of training programs for faculty and experiential learning in Mexico. Consequently the starting point for such programs is determined by questions such as: What are the characteristics of an effective university teacher? What is “good teaching”? After outlining some of these characteristics, a process is proposed for the development of instructors for faculty members and experiential learning in Mexico which would involve the design of programs of a different kind aimend at meeting concrete needs and covering certain areas.
