2018: Camilo Hurtado-Parrado
Fundación Universitaria Konrad Lorenz
The website of ABA Colombia, an ABAI affiliated chapter, has been a major forum for behavior analysis in Colombia and across Latin America, with more than 1,000 registered users and thousands of monthly visits. This success is the result of providing free access to information relevant to the field (e.g., newsletters, articles, information on events) in Spanish—as most behavior analytic literature, tutorials, and recorded conferences are available only in English.
Considering the need for more free-access and high-quality behavior analytic resources in Spanish, funds from the SABA grant will be used to create and develop an online course system that will be integrated with the website. Courses will be free and self-paced. For each course, students will have access to explanatory videos on behavior analysis topics, lectures, live-streamed or video-recorded conferences, tutorials, quizzes, and a forum. Courses will be offered via Moodle, an open-source learning platform. Indicators such as course creation, course assistance and completion, and number of hits will be used to assess accomplishment of the project’s objectives. We expect that these efforts will not only contribute to the continuing growth of ABA Colombia, but to the dissemination of behavior analysis across Latin America.
