Comparative educational studies allow the study of the differences and similarities between different educationalsystems. This research, which consists on an educational evaluation, has studied the teaching behavior of tenuniversity lecturers from a Spanish university -the University of La Laguna-, and seven from a Mexican university-University of Guadalajara-, laying the foundation in the Teaching Functions Model. It has been made through theobservational methodology and by registering their real conduct while teaching. The observational instrument,PROFUNDO_Uni, v3, was adapted for its implementation in both universities. Before developing the coding of thebehaviors, we trained ten Spanish lecturers and eight from Mexico. Data was analyzed using the sequential laganalysis. The displayed results show a great similarity between the behavioral patterns developed by both groups oflecturers with their students.
