In recent years the paradigm of teaching and learning is changing. Among the changes we see a shift from content oriented teaching to a skills oriented teaching, student effort measuring credits and the stress on professional skills. But all these changes scarcely take place in lecturer training programs. This paper presents a research conducted in a technical university to conceive a lecturer training program based on the essential skills to have as a lecturer. Work began in 2011 and has been developed with the action-research method. First we determine the skills required to be a lecturer. This was followed by the implementation of a training program and a critical analysis of the first semesters of the program, as well as a proposal of improvement actions. Here are the steps taken and lessons learned in this process.
