RIVERO, Sabino E.; SCHMAL, Rodolfo F.  y  VIDAL-SILVA, Cristian L.. Strengths and weaknesses of a program for the development of generic competences. Form. Univ. [online]. 2020, vol.13, n.4, pp.3-10. ISSN 0718-5006.

The objective of this paper is to present the strengths and weaknesses of a training program in generic competences in undergraduate degrees at the University of Talca (Chile). There are three versions of the program: fundamental formation program 1 (FFP1), FFP2, and PFF3. The present study is a descriptive research study that is based on a review of official documentation from the University of Talca, a survey, and background information collected by the authors. The results show a process of continuous improvement and maturation that is expressed in the clarification of the concept of competence. There is also a significant reduction in the size of the program when compared to that at the start. In addition, there is an attempt to articulating the program’s components of the basic, professional, and disciplinary education of each undergraduate major examined. However, there is still room for significant improvements to consolidate the program.
