Armanet, Pilar
Higher Learning Research Communications, v2 n3 p52-56 Sep 2012
Universidad de Las Américas--UDLA, is a Chilean University with 30.000 students located on 6 campuses. One third of students are working adults. A university like UDLA requires a flexible educational model to fulfill the learning requirements of different kinds of students and of the ever-changing conditions of the labor market that its graduates face. Following the ETCS, Credit System of Universidad de las Américas (SCUDLA) is a student-centered system based on transparency of outcomes and learning processes, which facilitates the planning of teaching, the evaluation of learning, and the recognition and validation of qualifications. SCUDLA is a tool that helps to design, describe and provide programs leading to an academic degree or a professional title. SCUDLA can be applied to all kinds of programs, regardless of the status of the students and the modality of learning.
