Teaching language



The UC Supervision on academic and clinical education  is aimed at an adult audience, with experience in their specific professional skills, but also in the work of teaching and learning of top-level complex formations. Therefore, an enhancement of prior scientific as experiential knowledge this public possesses is recognized, and thought as aimed at the light of routinized practices and its connection to knowledge of other scientific fields - as education and pegdagogical practices - in order to enrich this reflection. 

The strong weight of analysis of concrete situations of professional practices in the programming of this UC aims at inscribing it in a dynamics of adult education, apart from an elementary education approach and more according to a paradigm of continuous education. On the other hand, the training plan cannot dissociate its contents as their practices from an implicit replication dimension (as it concerns training of trainees), and so this one will be contemplated in the planning training itself.


Learning outcomes and competences


-To understand the influence of supervision on construction and professional development;

-To understand the influence of contexts (and their connections) to the processes of construction and professional development.


-To be able to analyse the relationship between 'health professional /patient ' on the complexity of the relationship between expert and profane knowledge;

-To be able to discuss the training of health professionals as a practice of continued questioning , which articulates in addition specialized knowledge with relational and communicational knowledge.


-To develop pedagogical supervision modes that emphasize educational trajectories of University students in a practice of continuous education;

-To mobilize notions of life and health sciences in conjunction with work situations, aiming at increasing a practice of reflection and scientific production.

Teaching methods and learning activities

-Theoretical exhibition, which outlines a set of pedagogical knowledge inscribed in the practices of supervision

-Instrumental practice, constructed from professional situations understood as critical incidents, i.e., which build at its core renewed looks over these same professional practices

-Analisys, which seeks to articulate proposals from early reflection with situations identified by students/profissionals throughout their academic and/or clinical practices

Assessment: will focus on the analysis of a scientific paper by a small group, proposed by the teachers involved in the UC and following a specific structure (60%), and its oral presentation and discussion (40%).
