MONTOYA AGUDELO, César Alveiro e PARDO RODRIGUEZ, Luis Ernesto. The education of librarians and archivists: an approach to prevailing pedagogical models. Rev. Interam. Bibliot [online]. 2009, vol.32, n.2, pp. 313-333. ISSN 0120-0976.
This paper presents a theoretical and conceptual approach to the pedagogical models in higher education -models focused on teaching and learning and models focused on education- and points out the model of Technical Rationality as an ideal model to the curricular conditions of the careers reunited under the label of Documentation and Information Systems: Librarianship and Archivistics. The acknowledgment of the dynamic character of the technical rationality model allows the academic community to promote processes of reflection on curricular redesign and adaptability to the technical and technological changes that support professional work. In this context, the paper approaches the change and unification of criteria in the educative institutions responsible for the education of professionals of information and documentation. The objective is to consolidate a reflection on the pertinence of the above mentioned pedagogical currents for the education of librarians and archivists, as well as to perform an analysis of their professional profile according to contemporary theoretical conceptions based on pedagogical and epistemological considerations.
