Abstract

Student-centered education and the incorporation of new information and communication technologies are currently relevant. Implementing these two aspects requires a professor whose conception of teaching match this goal, as these ideas could make the process easier or more difficult. The objective of this qualitative study was to detect and analyze university professors’ conceptions of face-to-face, mixed, and online teaching. An open-ended questionnaire about their conceptions about teaching modalities was answered by 18 professors; their answers were reviewed through content analysis. Results show face-to-face professors have a negative conception of online teaching, a conception of mixed teaching as distancing professors and students, and a conception of face-to-face teaching as enriching. Professors of mixed sources have positive and different conceptions of the three modalities.
