SUMBA, Nicolás; CUEVA, Jorge  y  LOPEZ, Roberto. Experiences in the Exercise of Higher Education in Prison from the Teacher's Perspective. Case Study: Guayaquil, Ecuador. Pág. Educ. [online]. 2019, vol.12, n.2, pp.72-88.  Epub 01-Dic-2019. ISSN 1688-7468.

The purpose of this research is to analyze, from the perspective of the teachers, the experiences in the exercise of higher education in prison. The educational experience carried out in the Provisional Deprivation of Liberty Center in Guayaquil, Ecuador, is taken as a case study. The starting point is a bibliographical review of the legal framework that supports prisoners, as well as the results of previous similar studies. The research used the synthetic analytical method supported by observation processes and questionnaires that gathered the teachers' points of view, analyzed through the systematization of experiences. Among the results, it stands out that teachers face a lack of resources and a feeling of insecurity within the prison, but they do not consider them obstacles to imparting classes and value the experience as enriching. It is concluded that the exercise of higher education in prison is feasible, but it must be consolidated through the design of didactic proposals appropriate to the context and adapted to the needs and profiles of the penitentiaries
