Abstract

This article reflects on how some values, interests, and particularities of 2.0 culture enter on higher and postgraduate education institutions. Through the identification of the features of 2.0, this document visualizes some of the resistances, obstacles, possibilities, and opportunities detected in these institu- tions, many of them focusing on the core of the higher education and postgraduate institutions (i.e. strategic vision, methodology, role of teachers and students, relation between formal and informal learning, contents and assessment). Responsibility in the training and updating of current and future professionals places these institutions under the discussion and decision-making process related to the role that 2.0 tools should play. We wonder if it implies a crossroad which affects the whole set of attitudes and values on the role of training institutions in the context of the construction of socialized knowledge.
