The following article is the product of a master`s thesis in Rural Development, entitled “Post-rural development. A pedagogical proposal for the recovery of memory in the municipality of Toca-Boyacá”. The article is divided into three parts: the first focuses on describing the problem and the objective, and is centered on a critique of development while arguing for post-development as a viable route, based on the collective memory of a pedagogical proposal. The second part is a brief description of the methodology of the study, placing it in a historical hermeneutic focus using an ethnographic method that recovers the collective memory of the municipality, and participatory action research relating to students of the Instituto Técnico Agrícola de Toca. Furthermore, this part includes a literary review on the concept of post-development. The last part presents the results, divided into two sections, the first showing, the fruit of ethnographic investigation, the recovery of memory, discovery of historically and culturally important sites, and folktales among others. The second part presents the work of the students, their transformation into the role of researchers and their encounter with memory, all framed in the post-development process foundation.
