The purpose of this research project was to characterize innovative strategies to assess the pedagogical practices of teaching English as a foreign language in educational institutions at the national level in Colombia. The case study was developed with a mixed methodology, addressing methodological strategies implemented in educational institutions to assess their effectiveness and compliance in the teaching of English, framed in experimental, descriptive and longitudinal research over a period of one year. A content analysis was applied to the data obtained, detailing each phase of the study in order to know the expected results and impacts in thirteen institutions located in the Andean and Caribbean regions of Colombia. As results, it should be noted that the contextual diagnosis of the educational institutions under study was obtained, identifying the essential needs to take improvement actions. Finally, the successful pedagogical practices within each context were categorized, achieving an impact for continuous improvement, where it was demonstrated how the implementation of the SDGs achieved a positive impact in the educational context for the practitioners, the group advisors, the teachers of the intervened educational institutions and the community in general.
