The general objective of the thesis is to analyze the incidence of digital education in teacher training in the modalities of b-learning and e-learning. The specific objectives are as follows: (a) to evaluate the effects of a TIC training course in b-learning mode in the digital competence of teachers in the UTE - University Technological Equinoccial (Ecuador); (B) identify the key components of the instructional design of a postgraduate program in the e-learning modality of the University of Extremadura (Spain); and (c) establish a proposal for instructional re-design of a digital education course through development of digital and informational competencies in teachers of UTE. The results show that (1) the instructional design of the training courses does not meet the needs and expectations of the digital competence, nor does it show an improvement in ICT practices in the classroom; (2) the postgraduate analyzed is considered as a valid, innovative and updated proposal for the training of professionals and researchers in Educational Technology and the design of the activities is key to the promotion of deep learning in online education (3) instructional re-design, based on the results of the previous studies, contributes to the quality of digital teacher training in the University. These three studies allow a comprehensive view of the results of research on digital education and university teacher training in the b-learning and e-learning modalities.
