QUALITY TRAINING IN AGRICULTURE FROM THE ROOT
This program educates professionals capable of addressing the challenges of agri-food systems by producing food sustainably, solving agricultural production problems through applied research, process innovation, data analysis for decision-making, and the appropriate use of natural resources.
This program offers the opportunity to transform agricultural products to create added value, address current food challenges, and meet production demands to enhance food security through sustainable nutrition systems.
Its goal is to use innovative technological and social tools, knowledge management, and the application of sustainability, resilience, and inclusion principles to provide solutions to the challenges in agri-food systems by adhering to standards and processes along the value chain.
Environment and Development
Through an interdisciplinary approach, the program examines the relationships between environmental quality, economic growth, social equity, and resilience in communities to promote an emerging world that is more prosperous and food secure, based on sustainable agri-food and nutrition systems.
Learning by Doing Program
Since the inception of Zamorano, Popenoe has based the educational model on constructivism. This learning theory posits that students construct knowledge through experiential learning, i.e., through work, practice, and social interaction with their environment.
El aExperiential learning allows students to actively build knowledge, values, and develop capabilities either individually or collectively. (Bodner, Klobuchar, & Geelan, 2001; Hinde & Perry, 2007; Tuddenham, 1966, Joldersma, 2011).
Wilson Popenoe, the founder of EAP Zamorano, adopted the motto of ‘Learning by Doing’ from the very beginning, reflected in the Latin expression ‘Labor Omnia Vincit’ (Work conquers all).
