The article points how the knowledge society provides an opportunity to review the orientation and strategy of teaching methods in academia. It puts forward that "it is not only a matter of being leaders in the generation of new knowledge, scientific and technological production, transference of knowledge and innovation", but also that we need university to be the "critical consciousness of society, a hub for reflection, analysis and prospective about the evolution of society itself". Thus, it meditates on the goal of university and argues that it must focus its ability to transform the learning process on developing competences in students, not specifically for the labor market, but rather to achieve the students' full development as well as peace, social well-being and prevent inequity.
