The idea is to carry out a coherent conference with PBL philosophy: increase the analyze about solution of problems and reduce theoretical lectures. To achieve it, we have thinking to suggest 2 or 3 main issues to be developed as central problems during three days. The participants can choose one issue and can enjoy a PBL experience both cognitive, procedure and attitude. In this experience, participants compose academic learning with tourism and fun (similar Authentic PBL that was suggested at International Conference PBL 2004 from Lima) Finally, the Academic Joint Venture between Universidad Autónoma de Occidente (UAO) and Pontificia Universidad Javeriana (PUJ) can organize a successful conferences, which it revitalizes PBL philosophy, Pan-American Network PBL is promoted and consolidated, teachers and professors of the five continents are summoned, prospect and challenges for PBL according to mankind s nowadays conditions are formulated. 4

5 COLOMBIA: BEAUTIFUL, STRATEGIC LOCALIZATION AND WELCOMING COUNTRY Colombia is located in the geometrical center of the American continent, that is the country easiest-arrival destinations. Colombia is a great point of connection and destination for many tourist and business routes. Cali, as the venue of the conference, is a city where one can get to by air in direct flights from North, Central and South-America; or indirectly with connection in Bogotá (Capital of the country). The air and road transportation fees are accessible, hotel and road infrastructure are adequate, and the means of transportation are added value in order to facilitate the staying to the participants. As an additional aspect, Colombia is the country of open doors, so, no visa required to visit it. 5

6 Some reasons for choosing to Colombia: Close to cities such as Los Angeles (7:40 hours), New York (5:30 hours), Miami (3 hours), Toronto (6 hours), Mexico City (4:30 hours), Buenos Aires (6:10 hours), Santiago de Chile (5 hours), Sao Pablo (5:45 hours), Paris (10:30 hours), Madrid (10 hours), London (11:40 hours). The country is directly linked to major North American and European cities with daily flights to New York, Miami Mexico City, Madrid, Paris, Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires, and Panama, and many others. There is a direct flight to Los Angeles four days a week. Principal airlines including American Airlines, Iberia, Air France, and Lufthansa fly directly to Bogotá, Colombia s major airline also handles international flights to Miami, New York, Los Angeles, among others. Tourist and hotel services in Colombia are booming. Several international hotel chains such as Hilton, Sheraton, Marriot, and Holiday Inn operate in Colombia along with first-class national chains. Hotels range from 3-stars with prices for single rooms starting at $40 USD, to 5-star hotels priced at up to $300 per night (these rates vary depending on the season and the city).

8 UAO: A YOUNG, INNOVATIVE AND REGIONAL RENOWN UNIVERSITY The UAO is interested in the carrying out of the VII International Conference on PBL because our educational community are conscious of the fact that we have at our disposal the necessary and sufficient resources, the adequate conditions at country, region, city and campus levels, the commitment with the PBL and other way of active and collaborative learning expressions, and the infrastructure and logistics to guarantee the success of the event, and, more importantly, the human warmth of Colombian people who will receive all the participants with open arms. 8

9 We re an enthusiastic academic community and we have people, infrastructure, resources, knowledge, experience, logistic 9

10 PUJ: A HISTORICAL, PRESTIGIOUS AND NATIONAL RENOWN UNIVERSITY Universidad Javeriana in Cali, Colombia, founded in 1970, is the regional headquarters of the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, the oldest Colombian university, started by the Jesuits in It is a catholic university, created and directed by the Society of Jesus, with an open mind to all persuasions of scientific and technological thought and development. Its campus, one of the most admired architectural designs in the region, is located in the rural area in the south of the city, surrounded by a rich diversity of flora and fauna, typical of the Andean mountain range of Western Colombia. 14 undergraduate programs, 18 graduates programs and several special programs and projects. Some programs are offer with international universities. The International Relations Office is responsible for the following activities such as promote and support the internationalization of the academic activities of the University and support the participation of the University in programs and projects involving international cooperation. 10

11 We re ready and our academic community hope to be an academic meeting place for you. 11

12 Who we are and what we do: Faculty of Engineering and Educational Innovation in Engineering Center We are a relatively young university and our Faculty had growing up together her. However, we re characterized by a high academic and social compromise, which is expressed in the adopting of educational models that guarantee the high quality of formation in all our academic programs. Within the educational proposal, the PBL and the active and collaborative learning approaches are the foundation to support the teaching in the different schools. Particularly, the Faculty of Engineering has consolidated an important amount of PBL experience in several courses, mainly on first year of engineering. 12

13 Who we are and what we do: Faculty of Engineering and Educational Innovation in Engineering Center Other ways of expression are: the learning through projects, cases, dual formation, active learning, and learning through services, among others. Our principal interest will be focused in showing our experiences and research in this sense. Activities with professors to enhance them teaching skills are organized between Dean Office and Educational Innovation in Engineering Center Team. Some periodic events with students and professors after classes are carried out in each academic semester, too. For example, INNOVA: Olympiad of Engineering. 13

14 Who we are and what we do: School of Health Sciences and Medicine Undergraduate Program The School of Medicine PUJ has an experience of 67 years in Health education. Therefore, all Javeriana s medical doctors have enough trajectory and knowledge to be great professionals. The School of Health Sciences PUJ has the first simulated hospital in our region to practice different medical specializes. Although PBL approach is not main pedagogical strategy into programs and courses we offer, we consider it as way to teach our students and a possible method to achieve learning experience on them. From the Medicine Undergraduate Program in Cali want to share with you our inter and trans disciplinary approaches, educational innovation to educate new generations of MD. 14

15 Proposal Cali to host the VII PAN/PBL International Conference The Academic Joint Venture between PUJ and UAO is ready to organize a successful International Conference PBL and to welcome all attendants, participants and guest. To achieve it, We have thinking to suggest 2 or 3 main issues to be developed as central problems during three days. The participants can choose one issue and can enjoy a PBL experience both cognitive, procedure and attitude. In this experience, participants compose academic learning with tourism and fun (similar Authentic PBL that was suggested at International Conference PBL 2004 from Lima) So, relevant issues to suggest would be Health and its influences in communities; Education and culture; Engineering, environment and sustainability. For example, an specific issue to carry out an authentic exercise PBL would be: Salsa: cultural expression and lifestyle that harmonizes social conflicts. In that issue, cultural legacy and musical influence are explored to participants, who investigates the Salsa s world and what has represented for the solution of social problematic. 15

16 Proposal Cali to host the VII PAN/PBL International Conference 1) Strong institutional tendency to PBL and others collaborative approaches for learning. Both universities have showed an strong tendency to approaches PBL and to different pedagogical strategies based active and collaborative learning. We want to share with you and all PBL people our innovations and particular applications that we have done. Specially, we want to show the first year of Engineering experience in the UAO and the transdisciplinary approach in the School of Health Sciences. 2) History of institutional success with hosting international conferences. c Both campus is a constant venue for regional, national and international events and academic meetings. There are also some permanent conference, seminaries and courses that count on international guests from most prestigious universities in the world. Each semester has between 3 and 5 international events ineach institution. More information can be consulting: 16

17 Proposal Cali to host the VII PAN/PBL International Conference 3) Dynamic and enthusiastic local organizing team. We have conformed an enthusiastic local organizing team of both institutions and an administrative unit that is responsible for the logistics, the management of the internal and external relations, and all necessary aspects to achieve the success in any type of event that is carried out. Besides its human resource, it has at its disposal the best technological and communications platform of the Colombian southeast, which allows the interaction in real time with any part of the world. Infrastructure and human factor are a guarantee in order to welcome to attendants, participants and guests. The Provisional Conference Planning Committee has the following members: Freddy Naranjo Perez (FI-UAO) Carlos Fernando Vega (FI-UAO) Planning Committee Coordinator Pedro Villamizar (SHS-PUJ) 17

18 Proposal Cali to host the VII PAN/PBL International Conference 4) Significant financial backing, demonstrated by upper administration of the institution. We will be able to obtain a substantive financial backing from many different sources, while it is receiving incomes due to registration of attendees. Besides, we would count on the sponsoring of official and private entities from both academic and business area. The idea is that this event is not only for our universities but for all the country, since it represents trustworthiness and support for a country that has had difficulties but that is getting ahead. We wish to have not only an academically successful conference but also one of the most profitable. Academic sponsors such as COLCIENCIAS, Ministerio de Education Nacional (MEN), ACOFI, ASCOFAME, ISTEC or LACCEI could have specific programs for supporting international conferences, and they open calls yearly. They finance: Air tickets and lodging for lecturers, publications relating to the event, room renting and simultaneous translation expenses. 18

19 Proposal Cali to host the VII PAN/PBL International Conference 5) Dedication to a bilingual conference, including a balance of plenary presentations in Spanish and English, accompanied by simultaneous s translation. One of the most interesting facts of the dynamics of the conference is that when the presentations of experiences and research are taking place, it is more possible finding Spanish-speaking people in the concurrent sessions in English than Englishspeaking people in the concurrent sessions in Spanish. The proposal for the conference of the UAO is to realize most of the sessions with simultaneous translation from one language into the other in order to get a better integration between both idiomatic worlds. For that, our university counts on the strength of its Languages Institute, since its teachers and students would be able to support the participants in languages different from Spanish and provide help to the idiomatic integration within the conference. We also want to think on the possibility of a trilingual conference, considering the possibility of Portuguese or French as third language. We think it would give a special sense of uniqueness, and at the same time, it would create the possibility for the open dialogue and sharing regarding PBL in different languages. 19

20 Proposal Cali to host the VII PAN/PBL International Conference 6) Sited in an affordable, accessible venue for participants from m the Americas. Colombia is a great point of connection and destination for many tourist and business routes. Cali, as the venue of the conference, is a city where one can get to by air in direct flights from North, Central and South-America; or indirectly with connection in Bogotá (Capital of the country). The air and road transportation fees are accessible, hotel and road infrastructure are adequate, and the means of transportation are added value in order to facilitate the staying to the participants. As an additional aspect, Colombia is the country of open doors, so, no visa required to visit it. Air distances From Bogotá to main world s cities 20
