  7. Career satisfaction among medical school professors: a case study in Brazil

    Nilce Maria da Silva Campos Costa

    Full Text Available OBJECTIVE: To investigate the career satisfaction of medical school professors in relation to initial motivation, satisfaction factors, and the desire to remain in the profession. METHODOLOGY: A qualitative methodology was used, based on questionnaires and semi-structured interviews with faculty members at a federal institution of higher education in Brazil. RESULTS: For 42.86% of the sample, teaching began while they were medical students; 80% had chosen teaching either as a vocation or due to influence from families or professors; 20% chose teaching as a professional opportunity. The majority, 57.14%, stated they were happy with teaching, and 51.42% did not plan to leave the career. Factors involved in satisfaction with teaching were: the possibility of remaining up-to-date in the medical profession, the feeling of doing their duty, their contribution to training future doctors, and contact with young people and the university setting. Factors leading to dissatisfaction were pedagogical (33.33%, economic (30.95%, institutional (14.28%, and relational (14.28%. CONCLUSIONS: Subjects expressed a positive attitude towards teaching, and because of their great personal satisfaction with the career, they did not plan to leave it. These findings should shed light on factors that interfere with career satisfaction and help increase those that promote satisfaction, thus improving the productivity and well-being of medical professors.

  7. Professor Igor Yevseyev: In Memoriam Professor Igor Yevseyev: In Memoriam


    Dear readers and authors, June 3, 2012 will mark five months since Professor Igor Yevseyev, Deputy Editor-in-Chief of both journals Laser Physics and Laser Physics Letters passed away, suddenly and unexpectedly. He was 67. Born in Moscow, he entered one of the world's best schools of physics, Moscow Engineering Physics Institute (MEPhI). With this renowned educational and research institution he bonded an alliance for his entire life, starting as an undergraduate student in the Department of Theoretical Physics and later continued as graduate student, assistant professor, associated professor, and full professor in the same department, a rare accomplishment of a person. All those years he retained the love of his life—the love for physics. He worked tirelessly as a teacher and scholar in this captivating field of knowledge. Professor Yevseyev was one of the founders of the international journal of Laser Physics in 1990, the first academic English language journal published in the former USSR. Later, in 2004, the second journal, Laser Physics Letters was brought to the forum of global laser physics community. The idea behind this new title was Professor Yevseyev's initiative to reach the readers and participants with new pioneering and break-through research results more rapidly. His leadership and indefatigable dedication to the quality of published materials made it possible that this journal reached international recognition in a few short years. Still, in order to attract even more attention of potential contributors and readers, Professor Yevseyev originally proposed to conduct the International Laser Physics Workshop (LPHYS) on the annual basis. Since 1992 the Workshop has been conducted every year, each year in a different country. As in all previous years, Professor Yevseyev was the key organizer of this year's workshop in Calgary, Canada. Sadly, this workshop will take place without him. Editorial Board

  9. Promotion to professor: a career development resource.

    Sanfey, Hilary


    By the time a faculty member is being considered for promotion to full professor, he/she will be about 10 years out of residency training and will almost certainly have prior experience with the academic promotion process. The preparation for promotion to full professor should begin soon after the promotion to associate professor. This is a time to reassess opportunities, resources, skills, and career goals. The timing of the promotion to full professor is usually less rigid than the timeframe for promotion at lower ranks, but schools vary in this regard. Copyright © 2010 Elsevier Inc.

  10. Decoupling of the minority PhD talent pool and assistant professor hiring in medical school basic science departments in the US.

    Gibbs, Kenneth D; Basson, Jacob; Xierali, Imam M; Broniatowski, David A


    Faculty diversity is a longstanding challenge in the US. However, we lack a quantitative and systemic understanding of how the career transitions into assistant professor positions of PhD scientists from underrepresented minority (URM) and well-represented (WR) racial/ethnic backgrounds compare. Between 1980 and 2013, the number of PhD graduates from URM backgrounds increased by a factor of 9.3, compared with a 2.6-fold increase in the number of PhD graduates from WR groups. However, the number of scientists from URM backgrounds hired as assistant professors in medical school basic science departments was not related to the number of potential candidates (R(2)=0.12, p>0.07), whereas there was a strong correlation between these two numbers for scientists from WR backgrounds (R(2)=0.48, pprofessors and posited no hiring discrimination. Simulations show that, given current transition rates of scientists from URM backgrounds to faculty positions, faculty diversity would not increase significantly through the year 2080 even in the context of an exponential growth in the population of PhD graduates from URM backgrounds, or significant increases in the number of faculty positions. Instead, the simulations showed that diversity increased as more postdoctoral candidates from URM backgrounds transitioned onto the market and were hired.

  12. A interculturalidade no cotidiano educativo de professores do ensino médio / Interculturality in the educational day-to-day of teachers in high school

    Gilberto Ferreira da Silva


    Full Text Available Por intermédio de narrativas de professores do ensino médio de escolas públicas da Região Metropolitana de Porto Alegre, este texto busca capturar marcas e ações pedagógicas queperpassam o cotidiano do fazer educativo. Na análise das entrevistas, sustentado por um perscrutar do discurso produzido pelos professores, procura-se localizar expressões culturais que permitam dar sustentação à construção de uma proposta de educação intercultural, compreendida como processo carregado de intencionalidade em um dado contexto constituído multiculturalmente. Preconiza-se que tais expressões possam, na potencialização da diferença, reconhecer e valorizar a diversidade constitutiva da realidade escolar em meios populares. Esse processo desencadeia resultados híbridos e fluidos, configurando outras produções culturais compreendidas sob a égide da interculturalidade.Abstract The present work aims to capture, by means of the speech of high school teachers from public institutions of the Great Porto Alegre metropolitan area, marks and pedagogical actions that pervade the educational day-to-day practice. The analysis of the interviews - which tries to carefully read the discourse produced by the teachers - seeks to locate cultural expressions which would support the developing of an intercultural education proposal, understood here as a process charged with intentionality in a given multiculturally-constituted context. What is claimed here is that the afore mentioned speeches - by potentializing the differences - may recognise and value the intrinsicdiversity of the reality of a school in (suburban environments. Such process triggers mixed and fluid results, constituting other cultural productions which are included under the title 'Interculturality'.

  13. Professores, desencanto com a profissão e abandono do magistério Teachers, disenchantment in the profession and quitting the public schools

    Flavinês Rebolo Lapo


    Full Text Available Ao examinar a questão do abandono do magistério público na rede de ensino do Estado de São Paulo, este artigo teve como principal objetivo compreender de que modo esse processo é tecido ao longo da vida e da experiência profissional dos professores. O estudo focalizou o período de 1990-1995 e se baseou em dados quantitativos, obtidos na Secretaria Estadual de Educação, a partir dos quais verificou-se, no interregno, um aumento da ordem de 300% nos pedidos de exoneração do magistério, e em dados qualitativos, obtidos de um questionário, enviado a 158 ex-professores da rede pública, e de 16 entrevistas sobre histórias de vida profissional. As análises evidenciam que, além dos baixos salários, as precárias situações, a insatisfação no trabalho e o desprestígio profissional estão entre os fatores que mais contribuem para que os professores deixem a profissão docente. Mostram também que esse processo acontece lentamente, por meio de uma série de mecanismos pessoais e institucionais de que os docentes fazem uso, até que ocorra o abandono definitivo.The goal of this study was to investigate why teachers give up their work at the State of São Paulo (Brazil public schools, understanding how this process is woven throughout their lives and professional experience. The study focused on the period between 1990 and 1995, and was based on two types of data: quantitative data, collected from the State Secretariat for Education revealed an increasing of 300%, approximately, in teachers' resignations in that period. Qualitative data were obtained through answers given to 158 questionnaire, besides 16 interviews on teachers' professional life histories. The analyses showed that, apart from low wages, bad working conditions, professional debasement, and dissatisfaction at work were among the factors that contributed most to teachers' disenchantment in their profession. They also showed that quitting does not happen suddenly. The

Foram avaliados indicadores de stress, "burnout", saúde física e satisfação profissional. Observaram-se valores significativos de stress ocupacional (perto de 40%, e de "burnout" (10% na exaustão emocional, 3% na baixa realização pessoal e 1% na despersonalização, vários problemas de saúde física e valores de insatisfação profissional perto dos 20%. As análises de regressão múltipla apontaram diferentes variáveis preditoras para as três dimensões do "burnout" (62% de variância explicada na exaustão emocional, 16% na realização pessoal e 13% na despersonalização. As análises discriminantes e "t-test" para amostras independentes demonstraram maior stress ocupacional nas mulheres, nos professores mais velhos, nos profissionais com vínculos profissionais mais precários, nos professores com mais horas de trabalho e com mais alunos em sala de aula. No final, apresentam-se as limitações do estudo e as implicações para a investigação futura.This work was done with 689 Portuguese high school teachers.

  15. Posturas docentes e formação universitária de professores do ensino fundamental Pedagogical postures and undergraduate studies of teacher linked to fundamental school

    Claudia Davis


    Full Text Available O objetivo desse trabalho foi avaliar se a participação de professores de redes municipais do Estado de São Paulo em um programa de licenciatura em nível superior, oferecido por duas renomadas universidades paulistas, ocasionava alteração nas posturas docentes dos alunos-professores. Os dados - respostas de 1.272 participantes a 17 simulações de situações problemas apresentadas no início e no final do programa - foram analisadas por meio de procedimentos estatísticos. Os resultados mostraram que 30% dos alunos-professores sofreram modificações de perfil nas posturas estudadas no sentido esperado. Isso parece indicar que os participantes apresentaram, ao final do Programa, maior tendência para dominar e planejar situações didáticas que envolviam os conteúdos básicos das áreas de conhecimento; reconhecer e empregar adequadamente os recursos e tecnologias disponíveis no processo de ensino-aprendizagem; e valer-se da teoria para orientar a prática docente e a avaliação.The goal of this study was to evaluate if participation in a university level Education program (devoted to form elementary teachers caused an impact on the postures of pupils that were already teaching at counties' schools. The data - answers given by 1272 participants linked to two highly known universities in the state of São Paulo (Brazil to 17 simulations that encompassed initial and final evaluation - were analyzed by statistical procedures. The results showed that 30% of the subjects had their profiles altered in the expected direction in the focused postures, implying that at the end of the Program they demonstrated a tendency to dominate and plan didactic situations involving basic contents of knowledge areas; recognize and employ adequately the resources and the technologies available to the teaching and learning process; and to use theory to orient teaching and evaluation.

  16. [Nurse's training: professor's characteristics and academic success].

    Friedlander, Maria Romana; Moreira, Maria Teresa de Arbués


    The present report describes the characteristics of the professor who teaches the disciplines that obtained the highest success indexes in the evaluation carried out by the students. It was executed at a Nursing Superior Education School in Lisbon (Portugal), regarding 16 professors who answered a questionnaire. We concluded that a professor who is well evaluated by the students has the following attributes: he is mature, well qualified for education, with a solid experience in teaching and a good experience in the exercise of the profession. In the professor's own opinion, they are able to establish a good relationship with their students, they consider themselves as being solidly efficient in teaching practice and they have a deep knowledge of their lectured disciplines. All of the professors use expository lectures, with student's interaction and dialogue, and complemented by the sharing of experiences and practical way of life, debates, discussions, dramatisations and simulations. The authors alert the need for further research on the subject.

  4. Dr. Rudolph Binion: professor, mentor, psychohistorian.

    Szaluta, Jacques


    As the title of my paper indicates, Dr. Rudolph Binion was my professor, mentor, and a leading psychohistorian. My paper in memoriam to Rudolph Binion is intended as both a retrospective and an introspective account of my relationship with him, as he had a pivotal influence on me when he was my professor at Columbia University. His help and influence continued after I left graduate school. In my paper I also deal with the enormous stresses of navigating through graduate school, for those students whose goal was to earn the Ph.D. degree. Some examinations were dreaded, For Example The "Examination in Subjects," popularly called the "Oral Exam." The "incubation" period was long indeed, frequently averaging nearly ten years, and it was an ordeal, as the rate of attrition was very high. There is then also the question of "ego strength" and that of "transference" toward the professor. Graduate school is indeed a long and strenuous challenge. I took a seminar in modern French history, a requirement for the Master's degree with Professor Binion, which was consequential for me, as he taught me to be objective in writing history. Professor Binion was a demanding and outstanding teacher.

  6. A inserção do aluno surdo no ensino regular: visão de um grupo de professores do Estado do Paraná Deaf student insertion in regular schools: deaf teachers from Parana State views

    Ana Cristina Guarinello


    Full Text Available Com o objetivo de debater a problemática que envolve a inclusão do aluno surdo no ensino regular, esse estudo se propõe a analisar aspectos envolvidos em tal problemática a partir da visão de um grupo de professores. Para tanto, foi aplicado questionário junto a 36 professores inseridos na Rede Pública do Ensino Fundamental e Médio do Estado do Paraná. A análise dos dados evidencia que as principais dificuldades citadas ora relacionam-se aos próprios professores - à falta de conhecimento acerca da surdez, à dificuldade de interação com o surdo, ao desconhecimento de LIBRAS -, ora aos sujeitos surdos - a própria surdez e a dificuldade de compreensão que tais sujeitos apresentam na ótica dos professores. Cabe ressaltar que os professores, sujeitos dessa pesquisa, não relacionam as suas dificuldades para ensinar com as dificuldades de seus alunos para aprender, como se o desconhecimento dos professores acerca da surdez, por exemplo, não tivesse implicações diretas na aprendizagem dos surdos. Conclui-se que a inclusão de surdos no ensino regular significa mais do que apenas criar vagas e proporcionar recursos materiais, é necessário que a escola e a sociedade sejam inclusivas, assegurando igualdade de oportunidades a todos os alunos e contando com professores capacitados e compromissados com a educação de todos.Since this study aims to discuss the placement of deaf students in regular schools, we intend to analyze various aspects pertaining to such issues from the perspective of a group of teachers of deaf students. We applied a questionnaire to 36 teachers working in public schools in elementary, middle and high school levels in the state of Paraná. The data analysis showed that the main difficulties mentioned were related either to the teachers themselves or to their students. Teacher related issues ranged from the teachers' lack of knowledge about deafness, or to problems concerning interaction with the deaf and lack

    Full Text Available Este artigo apresenta resultados de um estudo realizado em uma escola pública da rede estadual de São Paulo, no município de Diadema, durante três anos. Acompanhou-se a trajetória de 52 alunos que participaram do Projeto Classes de Aceleração, em 1999, e o retorno destes para o ensino regular, em 2000 e 2001, com uma proposta de Progressão Continuada. O artigo prioriza reflexões sobre o desempenho dos alunos que frequentaram as Classes de Aceleração e, posteriormente, seguiram estudos nas séries finais do Ensino Fundamental (5ª a 8ª séries e também sobre o preparo (capacitação dos professores diante da implantação dessas ações. O estudo de caso foi realizado por meio de observações em salas de aula e entrevistas com alunos, professores e coordenação. Os resultados apontam para alguns descompassos: entre os professores, sobre a compreensão dos objetivos e os pressupostos do projeto Classes de Aceleração; envolvimento diferenciado dos professores quanto aos problemas ou às dificuldades de aprendizagem apresentadas pelos alunos; a proposição de programas de capacitação e/ou orientações de preparo dos professores para a implantação dos dois projetos que ocorre apenas para os professores das Classes de Aceleração e não para os demais. O propósito das ações governamentais para o combate à defasagem idade-série, bem como para o alcance de uma escola de qualidade, não é observado no estudo. Muito pelo contrário. Ao invés de uma inclusão dos excluídos na escola, foi observada a sua reclusão, porque não se está garantindo a melhoria do desempenho dos alunos.This article brings results from a 3-year study conducted with a school located in the city of Diadema, and belonging to the State of São Paulo public school system.

    Full Text Available O presente trabalho buscou investigar a percepção dos professores da educação básica sobre as práticas pedagógicas em sala de aula e na escola, as dificuldades enfrentadas e as possíveis maneiras de solucioná-las, assim como as formas por eles utilizadas para se manterem atualizados. A investigação envolveu 93 professores do Ensino Médio de escolas do Estado de Minas Gerais, durante a realização da Olimpíada Mineira de Química (OMQ 2008. A análise dos comentários feitos pelos professores, no instrumento de coleta de dados utilizado, mostrou que os mesmos tendem a associar as dificuldades que enfrentam principalmente à escola, aos alunos e a questões externas à escola, ou seja, não se assumem como parte dos problemas. Percebemos, também, que associam as principais melhorias na educação básica à infraestrutura da escola e que nem todos participaram de eventos que promovessem a atualização profissional nos últimos dois anos.The present study aimed at investigating the perception of High School teachers in pedagogical practices in classrooms and in schools. It evaluates the difficulties encountered by teachers and possible ways to solve them, as well as how teachers keep themselves updated. The research involved 93 Hight School teachers in the schools of the state of Minas Gerais, during the Chemistry Olympiad of the State of Minas Gerais (OMQ 2008. The analysis of teachers' comments showed that they tend to associate the problems they encounter mainly with to school, students and questions outside the school, in other words, they do not see themselves as part of the problems. We perceive that teachers associate most improvements in education with school facilities and that they have not participated in upgrading courses, meetings or other discussions, as a means of professional updating in the last two years.

  16. A formação do professor de matemática e o trabalho com projetos na escola The Mathematics teacher education and project work at school

    Maria Dirlene da Silva Cattai


    Full Text Available O objetivo do presente texto é apresentar os resultados de uma pesquisa que procurou discutir a formação dos professores de Matemática que trabalham com projetos e documentar a maneira da implementação dessa proposta na escola. Os dados são provenientes de entrevistas com dez professores de Matemática, os quais atuam no Ensino Fundamental ou Médio. Seus relatos possibilitam identificar três formas diferentes de trabalhos com projetos: i individualmente e por iniciativa própria; ii por sugestão da escola, de forma fragmentada; iii coletivamente. Não há indícios de que a formação inicial desses professores os tenha influenciado a trabalhar com projetos. Esse preparo foi construído ao longo de suas carreiras, através da participação em cursos de formação continuada, da experiência com a prática e das interferências de suas características pessoais.This paper presents the results of research aiming at discussing the relationship between mathematics teacher education and the development of project work in teaching practice. The data are taken from interviews with ten secondary and high school mathematics teachers as well as two questionnaires answered by each of them. It was possible to identify three different forms of working with projects: i individually- teachers' own initiative; ii by school recommendation- in a fragmented manner; iii collectively. There are no evidences that the pre-service education influenced their work with projects. This preference was developed during their careers through participation on in-service courses, practical experience, and personal characteristics. In-service teacher education was the main aspect which contributed for their preference.

A análise estatística dos resultados foi realizada a partir do Teste de Fisher, ao nível de significância de 0,05 e do Teste qui-quadrado, ao nível de significância de 0,05. RESULTADOS: não houve diferença significante entre o conhecimento dos professores acerca da concepção de linguagem escrita, letramento, alfabetização e dos motivos que levaram a incorporação do conceito de letramento no sistema educacional e o período de formação no magistério. Predominou, entre os professores, uma concepção de linguagem como código/instrumento e representação da fala (80%.

  1. Professores discriminados: um estudo sobre os docentes do sexo masculino nas séries do ensino fundamental Discriminated teachers: a study of male teachers in the early grades of primary school

    Amanda Oliveira Rabelo


    Full Text Available Este artigo tem como objetivo analisar algumas representações de gênero que envolvem a docência nas séries iniciais do ensino fundamental no Rio de Janeiro (Brasil e em Aveiro (Portugal, especialmente as representações geradoras de discriminações que afetam os homens atuantes na profissão. Socialmente definida como feminina, tal profissão carrega representações que podem diferenciar as práticas e as escolhas, sendo que muitas delas associam o magistério ao feminino e alegam que os professores homens estariam fora de lugar. A partir da análise qualitativa e quantitativa de questionários e entrevistas com professores desse segmento, examinamos, então, quais são as representações de gênero que circulam em relação à docência nas séries iniciais do ensino fundamental, se existe discriminação em relação a eles, bem como se os homens que entram na profissão são desprovidos de preconceitos e ajudariam a diminuir as discriminações de gênero. Concluímos que o simples fato de existir um professor do sexo masculino nas salas de aula pode provocar várias representações de gênero; nesse sentido, os professores podem ou não tentar quebrar tais representações, o que aconteceu com alguns dos participantes desta investigação. Mesmo sofrendo preconceitos, porém, muitos se aproveitam das vantagens da masculinidade na sociedade. Apesar disso, demarcamos que a presença de professores do sexo masculino nas séries iniciais é uma forma de inserir as questões de gênero na educação, demonstrar às crianças na escola que o homem também pode escolher essa atividade com sucesso e evidenciar que a aptidão para o magistério não depende do sexo.This article aims to analyze some gender representations of teachers of the early grades of primary education in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil and Aveiro (Portugal, especially the representations that generate discrimination affecting male teachers.

    Full Text Available O presente artigo objetiva discutir a possível articulação entre ensino e pesquisa na prática pedagógica dos professores dos anos iniciais do ensino fundamental. Baseado na concepção de Demo da pesquisa como princípio educativo e pela compreensão de Freire e Giroux sobre o papel social da escola, o estudo foi realizado em uma escola da Rede Municipal de CampinasSP, que, por sua localização geográfica e por sua história recente, viu-se impelida a buscar alternativas para aprimorar a aprendizagem dos alunos, para resolver problemas estruturais e conflitos sociais originados pela demanda por vagas para alunos moradores de uma ocupação. Encontrando na pesquisa uma alternativa para seu trabalho, a experiência relatada nos leva a concluir que é possível desenvolver, na escola básica, uma prática pedagógica que articule ensino e pesquisa, tornando esta última fonte catalisadora de desenvolvimento integral e intelectual dos alunos, bem como de integração entre escola e comunidade.This paper aims to discuss the possible link between teaching and research in the teacher's practice in the first years of the Elementary School.

The validity of RMP is a point of debate; many would argue that self-selection bias obscures the usefulness of RMP evaluations.

  16. O processo de inclusão de crianças com deficiência auditiva na escola regular: vivências de professores The inclusion process of hearing impaired children in regular schools: the experience of teachers

    Noemi Vieira de Freitas Rios


    Full Text Available O objetivo do presente estudo foi descrever e discutir, a partir da vivência de professores, o processo de inclusão de crianças com deficiência auditiva em escola regular. Foram selecionadas três crianças entre 05 e 08 anos de idade, e seus respectivos professores. Por meio de entrevistas com as professoras das crianças, foi selecionado o material que permitiu caracterizar o processo de inclusão de cada criança do estudo. Os relatos das professoras sobre suas experiências com as crianças deficientes auditivas deste estudo parecem indicar que, ainda hoje, apesar da evolução das práticas inclusivas, prevalecem nas escolas muito mais os pressupostos da integração do que da inclusão. As professoras foram unânimes em admitir que não vêm sendo suficientemente preparadas para receber deficientes auditivos e pouco sabem sobre o desenvolvimento da audição, da linguagem e sobre como esses aspectos influenciam e determinam formas particulares de apreensão de conteúdos. Prevalece a idéia de que é a criança com necessidades educacionais especiais quem deve se adaptar ao ambiente, empenhar-se para ser nele integrada; ou então, as professoras buscam estratégias individuais de aproximação, sem que essa questão seja problematizada junto ao corpo técnico da escola, que ainda não vem efetivando transformações em sua organização para receber esses alunos.The aim of this study was to describe and discuss the process of inclusion in regular schools of children who are hearing impaired, based on teachers' perceptions of the process. Three children between the ages of 5 and 8 years and their teachers participated in the study. The interviews with the children's teachers were recorded, and material was selected from the transcripts that allowed us to characterize the inclusion process of each child in the study. The teachers' reports about their experiences with the hearing impaired children of this study seem to indicate that, even

    Sandra Magina


    Full Text Available O presente estudo analisa concepções de estudantes e professores sobre média, tanto aquelas válidas quanto as alternativas, com validade para alguns casos. Um teste, em lápis e papel, composto de 3 questões foi elaborado e aplicado com 287 estudantes e professores brasileiros, dos quais: 54 eram alunos da 4ª série e 47 eram da 5ª série do ensino fundamental, 61 eram estudantes iniciantes e 82 eram estudantes concluintes do curso de pedagogia, e 43 eram professores das séries iniciais do ensino fundamental. O teste foi aplicado de forma coletiva, em sala de aula. Excetuando-se o grupo de professores, todos os grupos tendem a confundir média com adição dos valores ou com o valor máximo. Os resultados mostram que, apesar da evolução no entendimento do conceito de média em relação ao nível de escolaridade, algumas confusões ainda são identificadas entre o grupo de professores.The present study aims to analyze students and teachers conceptions and misconceptions of average. A paper and pencil test, comprised of three questions, was designed. 287 Brazilian students and teachers undertook the test. They were: 54 pupils from 4th grade, 47 from 5th grade, 61 students beginning undergraduation on Pedagogy, 82 students finishing their undergraduation on Pedagogy and 43 elementary school teachers. The test was undertaken in a collective way. Excepting to the teachers group, all the groups tend to confuse average to addition of the values, or to the maximum value. The result points that, in spite of an evolution on the understanding of the concept of average according to the educational level of the groups, some misconceptions are found within the teachers' group.

    Full Text Available Professores/as são testemunhas do fantástico mundo da sexualidade. Esse artigo explora a centralidade de Eros para a educação e estabelece uma relação entre o desejo do/a professor/a e os acontecimentos emocionais da relação própria relação aluno/professor. Eu proponho que o aprendizado deva envolver nosso "eu" erótico, além das nossas fantasias. Mas esta perspectiva requer que professores/as considerem uma psicologia do amor como um caminho principal para a as situações emocionais de Eros. Na sua conclusão este trabalho sugere uma pedagogia que dê as boas vindas tanto à homossexualidade como a heterossexualidade como expressões humanas do amor.Teachers bear witness to the wondrous world of sexuality. This essay explores the centrality of Eros to education and links the teacher's desire to the emotional situation of the student/teacher relationship. I propose that learning involves our erotic selves and our fantasy life. But such a view requires that teachers consider a psychology of love as lending insight into the emotional situation of Eros. The paper concludes by suggesting a pedagogy that welcomes homosexuality and heterosexuality as human expressions of love.

  6. A sistemática incompreensão da teoria quântica e as dificuldades dos professores na introdução da Física Moderna e Contemporânea no Ensino Médio The quantum theory systematic incomprehensibility and teachers difficulties concerning to the introduction of Modern and Contemporary Physics at High School Level

    Maria Amélia Monteiro


    Full Text Available O objetivo desta pesquisa é avaliar a proposta de introdução da Física Moderna e Contemporânea no Nível Médio da Educação Básica. Parte-se do pressuposto de que os professores assumem, às vezes até subconscientemente, que a teoria base da FMC é incompreensível. Investigamos, em 2007, os discursos de cinco professores de Física de um município da região Nordeste, visando compreender as possibilidades desses professores introduzirem a FMC em suas aulas de Física e em que medida estas possibilidades estão associadas às suas formações profissionais. Para a construção e análises dos discursos pautamo-nos na Análise de Discurso Francesa e em referenciais da Teoria Crítica da Educação. Constatamos que apesar de atribuírem papel relevante à introdução da FMC no Nível Médio, os professores não estão encarando este desafio.The main goal of this research is to evaluate the proposal to introduce Modern and Contemporary Physics (MCP in Brazilian secondary and high schools. Our evaluation presupposes that teachers assume sometimes unconsciously, that the MCP basis theory is essentially misunderstood. In 2007, we investigate five in-service Brazilian Northeastern physics teachers discourses, in order to comprehend their perspectives and possibilities to introduce MCP in their classes, as well as, how these possibilities are related to their professional backgrounds. Teachers' discourses were analyzed using as referential the French Discourse Analysis and Critical Educational Theory. We realized that the interviewed teachers, even though attributing relevant role in introducing PMC in that school level, are not facing this challenge.

  7. A produção de professores nas escolas: o Sistema de Proteção Escolar e suas articulações saber/poder The production of teachers in schools: the System of School Protection and its knowledge/power articulations

    Wellington Tibério


    Full Text Available RESUMO Os professores, para além de seus cursos de formação, são cotidianamente produzidos pela forma como vivem a experiência de ser professor, o que se realiza no interior do próprio funcionamento da instituição escolar. Esse funcionamento está baseado em uma série de racionalidades que delimitam e definem o fazer docente, estabelecendo, assim, as referências para uma forma de pensar e de fazer-se professor. Tendo como foco a racionalização da prática educativa instaurada pelo que podemos nomear de economia jurídica que hoje atravessa a instituição escolar, realizou-se a análise de uma importante política pública que funciona/opera na intersecção entre educação e segurança: trata-se do Sistema de Proteção Escolar, implantado na rede pública de educação do Estado de São Paulo em 2009/2010. A proposta do presente artigo foi problematizar tal política no plano das articulações saber/poder que a sustentam, bem como em relação aos seus efeitos produtivos na constituição de uma forma de pensar, de agir e, no limite, de ser professor. No interior da instituição escolar, essa economia jurídica produz sujeitos e um modo de se relacionar com a vida; produz, portanto, importantes efeitos, os quais se tentou desnaturalizar por meio de uma abordagem do ponto de vista das estratégias de poder.ABSTRACT Teachers, in addition to their training courses, are produced on a daily basis through the form in which they go through the experience of being a teacher, which takes place within the very functioning of the school institution. This functioning is based on a series of rationalities that circumscribe and define the teaching practice, thereby establishing the references for a form of thinking and becoming a teacher. Having as a focus the rationalization of the education practice inaugurated by what we can denominate a juridical economy that currently permeates the school institution, we have carried out an analysis of

  14. A prática da não-retenção escolar na narrativa de professores do ensino fundamental: dificuldades e avanços na busca do sucesso escolar The practice of assessment by learning cycles in the narrative of primary school teachers: difficulties and advances in the search for school success

    Dília Maria Andrade Glória


    Full Text Available Este estudo descreve e analisa as percepções de professores sobre a prática da não-retenção escolar que busca possibilitar a alunos de camadas populares uma sobrevivência escolar mais prolongada. Para tanto, definiu-se como locus da pesquisa uma escola fundamental da Rede Municipal de Educação de Belo Horizonte, que, desde 1995, assumiu o projeto político-pedagógico Escola Plural. A partir dessa reforma, mudanças radicais foram introduzidas na organização pedagógica das escolas e no trabalho docente objetivando construir uma escola mais includente e democrática. Numa abordagem qualitativa como procedimento central de investigação, foram realizadas entrevistas semi-estruturadas com os professores, no sentido de configurar as práticas pedagógicas construídas por esses atores e apreender alterações nos aspectos relativos aos processos de escolarização dos educandos a partir da adoção dos ciclos de formação e da eliminação dos mecanismos de reprovação escolar. A análise do material discursivo, obtido com a realização das entrevistas, foi feita pelo método de análise de conteúdo. A conclusão é de que o princípio da não-retenção, no âmbito da escola pesquisada, não consegue desfazer, por si mesma, os nós imbricados no sistema de ensino e reverter o quadro de exclusão que ainda persiste. Sem que os processos de ensino, as práticas pedagógicas e as estratégias escolares se reformulem para adquirirem contornos menos punitivos, seletivos e excludentes, o avanço certamente se mostrará limitado a uma escola que exclui menos, mas que continua excluindo.The present study describes and analyzes the perceptions of teachers about the practice of assessment by learning cycles, which seeks to give students from the lower social classes an extended "survival" in school.

Mediante o exame do projeto de formação do município de São Paulo, o "Programa Ler e Escrever, Prioridade na escola. Projeto Toda Força ao 1º Ano", analisam-se as concepções psicológicas em suas formas de conceber as crianças, a aprendizagem e o projeto de sua iniciação na cultura escrita. A partir das reconceitualizações sobre a aprendizagem, em que esta é considerada uma decorrência da natureza construtiva da mente infantil, é pertinente perguntar em que medida essas ideias rompem com aquelas anteriores, pertencentes ao assim chamado "ensino tradicional". Para responder a essas perguntas, recorreu-se a algumas das contribuições da história da leitura.The article presents data from an investigation, having as its objective, a deepening of our comprehension of how psychology is being applied in educating teachers, who are already in service. By examining the São Paulo training program "The Reading and Writing Project, Priority in school" and "The Project, All Power to the First Year", the way children are conceived of, based upon psychological concepts, is analyzed, alongside their learning achievements and initiation into our writing culture in response to projects designed to facilitate this. Because of new ways we have of conceptualizing the learning process, where learning is now considered a consequence of the constructive nature of the young mind, it is pertinent to ask, to what extent these ideas break with previous ones, those belonging to so-called "traditional teaching". To answer this question, some contributions from the history of reading, were reviewed.

  1. Apropriação do discurso de inovação curricular em química por professores do ensino médio: perspectivas e tensões Appropriation of a Chemistry curricular innovation discourse for secondary school teachers: perspectives and tensions

    Murilo Cruz Leal


    Full Text Available O objetivo deste trabalho é analisar como professores do Ensino Médio se apropriam de um discurso de inovação curricular de Química. O estudo baseia-se em entrevistas realizadas com 12 professores participantes do PRÓ-MÉDIO e do PRÓ-CIÊNCIAS, programas de formação continuada e inovação curricular ocorridos em Minas Gerais de 1997 a 1999. A análise do discurso dos professores baseia-se na "metalingüística" de Mikhail Bakhtin, utilizando sobretudo os conceitos de apropriação do discurso do outro e polifonia. Assim, pudemos ouvir as diversas vozes que se fazem presentes no discurso de cada professor, num processo complexo de justificação, acordo, competição e dissimulação, dentre outras dinâmicas, criando e recriando sentidos de inovação. A experiência do professor ora é aliada da cultura escolar, na crítica aos discursos idealizados da academia, ora se contrapõe a certas práticas escolares tradicionais já desgastadas e faz-se aliada da inovação.The aim of this investigation is to analyze how secondary school teachers appropriate the discourse of chemistry curriculum innovation. The study is based on interviews carried out with 12 teachers who have taken part in the PRÓ-MÉDIO and PRÓ-CIÊNCIAS programs of continued training and innovation implemented in Minas Gerais State in Brazil, from 1997 to 1999. The appropriation of the innovation discourse by the teachers is dealt with based on the "metalinguistic" perspective of Mikhail Bakhtin, using mainly the concepts of appropriation of the discourse of the other and polyphony. Thus, it was possible to listen to the different voices within the discourse of each teacher, in a complex process of justification, accordance, competition and dissimulation, among other dynamics, creating and re-creating the meanings of innovation. The teacher's experience sometimes acts as an ally to the school culture in the criticism of idealized academic discourses; sometimes it is in

  2. Mudanças nas concepções do professor do ensino fundamental em relação à inclusão após a entrada de alunos com deficiência em sua classe Changes in elementary school teachers' conceptions regarding inclusion after the admission of disabled students in their classrooms

    Ana Paula Húngaro Monteiro


    Full Text Available As concepções dos professores podem determinar as atitudes sociais em relação à inclusão do aluno com deficiência na sala de aula. Dentre dessa temática, pode-se questionar: a concepção de inclusão do professor do ensino regular muda no decorrer do ano letivo após a entrada de alunos com deficiência? Assim, objetivou-se identificar a existência de mudanças de concepções do professor do ensino regular em relação à inclusão. Participaram do estudo cinco professores do ensino regular que atuavam em sala de aula com pelo menos um aluno com deficiência, em três escolas de Município do interior Paulista. Os dados foram coletados durante um ano letivo por meio de três procedimentos: entrevista não-estruturada; segmento bimestral das informações por meio de cadernos de conteúdo e entrevista semi-estruturada, ao final do ano. Os dados foram tratados por meio da técnica designada como análise da enunciação. Dessa análise, foram estabelecidas classes e subclasses, aferidas por juízes para verificar o grau de concordância da análise. Os resultados mostraram mudanças de concepções nas subclasses: expectativa em relação à inclusão do aluno com deficiência no ensino regular, experiência em relação à inclusão, perfil do aluno para ser matriculado no ensino regular; ritmo de aprendizagem do aluno com deficiência na sala de aula regular, avaliação da aprendizagem do aluno com deficiência, dificuldades em lidar com a diversidade, dificuldade em lidar com a disciplina/comportamento do aluno com deficiência e dificuldade para ensinar o aluno com deficiência. Conclui-se que a entrada, por si só, do aluno com deficiência no ensino regular não garantiu a mudança de concepção dos professores.Teachers' conceptions can determine social attitudes in relation to the inclusion of disabled students in the classroom. Within this theme, one might ask: Do regular school teachers' conceptions of inclusion change during

    André Heloy Avila


    Full Text Available A partir de uma investigação de doutorado na qual foram realizadas várias entrevistas individuais com três professoras e um professor do segundo ciclo do Ensino Básico e do Ensino Médio de uma escola pública da Bahia, verificamos que o (desconhecimento das diretrizes éticas adotadas pelo Estado para combater as discriminações sexuais/de gênero envolve tanto os processos de formação profissional quanto as “crenças pessoais” dos docentes. Embora a arena política de produção destas diretrizes também se mostre efervescente e contraditória, focamos aqui as posturas docentes que, amalgamando singularmente “experiências de vida”, vivências profissionais e fragmentos das diretrizes oficiais, sustentam-se na constituição singular dos sujeitos num contexto em que as possibilidades de os/as investigados/as “lidarem” com a educação sexual e suas concepções pessoais sobre esse tema junto ao alunado se produziam a partir de uma abordagem “pessoal” dele. Discutimos esse cenário com foco na processualidade mediada, histórica, que, no caso, expõe a submissão da postura profissional a posições “pessoais”.A partir de una investigación de doctorado, que llevó a cabo varias entrevistas individuales con tres profesoras y un profesor del ciclo básico y medio de una escuela pública en Bahia, verificamos que el (mal conocimiento de las directrices éticas adoptadas por el Estado para combatir la discriminación sexual y de género está implicado en los procesos de formación profesional, así como en "creencias personales" de los profesores.

  7. As representações sociais dos professores e alunos da Escola Municipal Karla Patrícia, Recife, Pernambuco, sobre o manguezal Social representations about mangrove held by the teachers and students from the Karla Patrícia Municipal School, Recife, Pernambuco

    Priscila Andrade de O. Barcellos


    Full Text Available Localizada no entorno de um manguezal chamado de Parque dos Manguezais, em Recife, Pernambuco, a Escola Municipal Karla Patrícia possui, entre outras funções, a de contribuir para a conservação do mesmo, por meio da Educação Ambiental. Porém, antes de efetivar ações em Educação Ambiental, faz-se necessária uma diagnose que permita conhecer as percepções do corpo docente e discente. Assim sendo, fundamentado na Teoria das Representações Sociais de Serge Moscovici (1961 e utilizando o software Evoc, buscou-se identificar as representações sociais sobre o ecossistema manguezal dos alunos e professores do Ensino Fundamental da Escola, com a intenção de oferecer subsídios que auxiliem na Educação Ambiental voltada para a conservação do ecossistema local. Para identificar tais representações, utilizou-se uma pesquisa qualitativa com 92% dos professores e 25% dos alunos que compõem o Ensino Fundamental da Escola. Por meio das representações sociais dos professores, percebeu-se que, apesar de conhecerem o ecossistema manguezal, eles não conhecem o Parque dos Manguezais assim como os pressupostos da Educação Ambiental, necessitando assim de informações que os auxiliem nesse sentido pois suas representações estão voltadas para uma categoria naturalista, ou seja, a visão da natureza que se deve apreciar, cuidar e respeitar, mas que desconsidera o homem como parte do contexto. Quanto aos alunos, apesar de não terem conhecimentos sistêmicos a respeito do manguezal, eles conhecem bem o Parque dos Manguezais e suas representações estão voltadas para a preocupação com a poluição.The Municipal School Karla Patricia, located in a mangrove area called Park of the Manguezais, in Recife, Pernambuco, exists, among other functions, to contribute to the conservation of the park, through the Environmental Education.

Participaram deste estudo 102 professores que atuam em 14 cidades do estado do Paraná. Utilizou-se um questionário criado pelos autores com consistência interna de α= 0,902 (Alpha de Crombach. Os procedimentos estatísticos foram realizados pelo programa SPSS versão 14.0 com nível de significância de pThe objective of this work was to investigate aggression in the teacher-student relationship, experienced by teachers of physical education employed in primary and secondary schools in the public sector. The study involved 102 teachers working in 14 towns in the state of Paraná. A questionnaire developed by the authors was used, with an internal consistency of α= 0.902 (Crombach's Alpha. Statistical analysis was carried out using the SPSS program version 14.0 with a level of significance of p<0.05. It was found that 87.3% of the teachers had witnessed or experienced an episode involving acts of aggression in the school environment and 73.5% frequently received verbal insults. Teachers in the northwest region of the state are more exposed to situations of aggression from students compared to teachers from the central region. This relationship was the same among teachers who were single and those who were married. It was notable that teachers who gave classes in only one educational establishment felt safer in their workplace and that female teachers were more likely to seek help to resolve conflicts in the workplace. Aggression towards teaching staff in the teacher-student relationship is concluded to be at a worrying level.

  15. Fractions from the Perspective of Elementary School Teachers and Students A Fração nas Perspectivas do Professor e do Aluno dos Dois Primeiros Ciclos do Ensino Fundamental

    Sandra Magina


    Full Text Available O presente estudo visa discutir o ensino e a aprendizagem do conceito de fração nas séries iniciais do Ensino Fundamental a partir de uma pesquisa diagnóstica aplicada paralelamente a 70 professores polivalentes e a 131 alunos que cursavam 3ª e 4ª séries do Ensino Fundamental. A análise dos resultados oferece indícios de que os professores têm, em geral, um prognóstico do desempenho dos alunos longe do real, havendo uma tendência de superestimar o nível de acertos, principalmente no que tange aos alunos da 4ª série. Uma possível causa para essa discrepância pode estar relacionada ao fato da maioria dos professores não ter claro os diferentes significados que as frações assumem, o que os leva a apresentar estratégias de ensino que nem sempre auxiliam seus alunos a superar falsas concepções sobre esse conceito. Tais estratégias resumem-se à indicação do uso de material concreto à utilização do desenho para facilitar comparações perceptuais, em detrimento do ensino de ordem e equivalência, invariantes operatórios necessários para a compreensão do referido conceito. Os alunos, por sua vez, apresentaram desempenhos insuficientes em muitos dos problemas apresentados, principalmente naqueles cujos significados se relacionavam aos significados “número” e “operador multiplicativo”.

    Francisco Ricardo Lins Vieira de Melo


    Full Text Available O paradigma da inclusão escolar aponta para a necessidade de uma reestruturação organizacional das instituições de ensino regular. Para tanto, faz-se necessário uma rede de apoio e cooperação entre os setores da educação, saúde e assistência social. Nesse sentido, o presente trabalho busca investigar o que os professores do ensino comum pensam a respeito da colaboração do fisioterapeuta nesse processo. Trata-se de uma pesquisa de abordagem qualitativa utilizando-se de um estudo exploratório, cujos dados foram coletados a partir de um questionário aplicado a 22 professores de três escolas selecionadas de forma aleatória e analisados com base em categorias. Todos os professores reconhecem a importância da participação dos profissionais de saúde colaborando para a inclusão escolar dos alunos com deficiência, e, se tratando do fisioterapeuta, todos, com exceção de um dos professores, afirmam que o mesmo pode ajudar na inclusão dos alunos com deficiência física. O atendimento fisioterapêutico contribui para a inclusão escolar na medida em que são realizadas orientações e trocas de informações entre os professores e os fisioterapeutas. Entretanto, essa colaboração seria mais efetiva se houvesse um espaço permanente de debate, reflexão e troca de experiência entre profissionais, trabalhando juntos na escola.The school inclusion paradigm points to the need for organizational restructuring of regular educational institutions. Therefore, a network of support and cooperation is necessary among the sectors of education, health and social care.

    Clara Regina Abdalla Ferraz


    Full Text Available O princípio fundamental da escola inclusiva é de que todas as crianças aprendam juntas, independentemente de dificuldades ou diferenças. Hoje, há necessidade de revisão da inclusão de alunos com deficiências e da função da escola como contribuinte do seu desenvolvimento. Diante disso, percebe-se a importância da interação pais e escola para efetivação desse processo. Assim, este trabalho buscou conhecer o processo de inclusão do aluno com Síndrome de Down (SD e Paralisia Cerebral (PC, a partir da comparação dos relatos de pais e professores e analisar como sua interação afeta o processo de inclusão. Participaram deste estudo 4 mães com filhos com PC, 4 mães com filhos com SD e 8 respectivos professores dessas crianças, do ensino público regular de um município na grande São Paulo. Utilizou-se uma entrevista estruturada construída pelos pesquisadores e adaptada para pais e professores. Para análise foram identificadas as categorias que emergiram dos relatos dos grupos. Como resultados observaram-se: oportunidade da inclusão diminuir o preconceito; a expectativa dos pais em matricular o filho na escola regular como possibilidade de aprender a ler e a escrever ao menos o nome. Por outro lado, os professores declaram não se sentirem preparados para este trabalho; entretanto, mesmo sem orientações, recursos e estrutura física adequada, trabalham para efetivação do aprendizado em sala de aula. A escola deve possibilitar condições para que os pais e professores se comuniquem de forma adequada e assim compartilhem conhecimentos indispensáveis para a inclusão e aprendizado efetivo de crianças com SD e PC.The fundamental principle of inclusive schools is that all children learn together, no matter their differences or difficulties. Currently, there is a need to review the inclusion of students who have disabilities, and the role of schools as contributors to their development. Thus, the importance of parent-school

    Full Text Available O modelo de avaliação de professores da escola pública portuguesa sofreu, a partir de 2007, profundas alterações. As mudanças ocorridas, numa lógica política de intensificação dos processos de avaliação entendidos como elementos estratégicos para a implementação da qualidade na administração pública, em geral, e nos sistemas educativos, em particular, foram objecto de muita contestação por parte da classe docente portuguesa. Esta contestação levou a que o poder político fosse introduzindo várias modificações no modelo de avaliação de desempenho docente inicialmente proposto. São os traços gerais que caracterizam este modelo, tendo em conta as alterações introduzidas nos últimos quatro anos, bem como algumas apreciações sobre o modo como o processo decorreu, que pretendemos descrever no presente artigo.El modelo de evaluación para los maestros de escuelas públicas en Portugal ha experimentado, desde 2007, cambios profundos.

    Pervaiz, Shazib


    Professor Barry Halliwell is recognized as a Redox Pioneer because he has published eight articles on redox biology that have been each cited more than 1000 times, and 158 articles that have been each cited more than 100 times. His contributions go back as far as 1976, when he was involved in elucidation of the Foyer-Halliwell-Asada cycle, an efficient mechanism for preventing oxidative damage to chloroplasts. His subsequent work established the important role of iron and zinc in free radical reactions and their relevance to human pathologies. Professor Halliwell is also a leader in developing novel methodology for detecting free radical intermediates in vivo, and his contributions to our knowledge of reactive nitrogen species are highly significant. His sustained excellence won him the top-cited scientist award in the United Kingdom in biomedical sciences in 1999, and in 2003 he was recognized as a highly cited scientist by Institute of Scientific Information (ISI) for work on plant antioxidants, and the same year ranked 28 out of 5494 biochemists/biologists for scientific impact.

    Cui, Linhua; Xing, Xiao; Xue, Weihua; Wang, Yanjun; Xu, Cejun; Xuc, Jun; Gao, Yuchun; Kang, Suobin


    As one of the important founders of GAO's acupuncture academic school in YanZhao area, Professor GAO Yuchun 's experience of acupuncture for headache is summarized in this paper. In the opinion of Professor GAO, the treatment of headache should focus on eliminating evil and relieving pain, and the syndrome differentiation should be based on meridian differentiation, especially on three yang meridians of foot as well as liver meridian and kidney meridian. In the acupoint prescription, attention should be placed on strengthening the spleen and stomach. The midnight-midday ebb flow acupuncture is advocated. The combination between acupuncture order and movement of qi is emphasized. In the manipulation, the role of pressing hand, the stimulation during reinforcing and reducing methods, and needle-retention time are important. The breathing reinforcing and reducing method of acupuncture are also advocated.

    Análida Elizabeth Pinilla-Roa


    Training of the School of Medicine. Objective. To research the conceptions of postgraduate professors about the academic evaluation of students. Materials and methods. This study seeked to build a theory that explains the conceptualizations underlying the process of evaluation of the graduate student. Thirty-three professors were interviewed in ten focal groups, according to educational program (specialization, medical specialty, master or doctorate. Discussed issues included the role of the teacher on evaluation, the methodology and purpose of evaluation, and current problems and their potential solutions in order to improve the evaluation process. Results. The professors conceptualized the evaluation as a process, in all educational programs. Depending on the kind of educational program there were differences in the role assigned to evaluation inside the formative process: in disciplines (research masters and doctorates evaluation is based on research projects, while in professions (specializations and medical specialties it is based on performance with the patient and his family, and involves not only knowledge but skills and attitudes. Conclusions. At this moment, entry requirements to the faculty track are designed to evaluate abilities in the relevant discipline or profession, without attention to pedagogical training. This can actually explain why different professors have heterogeneous concepts to evaluate and train postgraduate students. In general, the conceptions of professors reflect evaluation as a functional process that involves feedback to learner and professor, but is detached from the learning process and is essentially focused on the decision of having the student pass or fail.

    Full Text Available This study aims to discover and describe protective factors regarding the use of drugs, according to teachers and students, aged 14 to 15 years, from a Public Secondary School in Santiago de Querétaro, Mexico. This is a descriptive and exploratory study. Data collection was carried out through semi-structure interview and non-participative observation with ten students and five teachers. Three themes resulted from data analysis: school and school's environment: the school does not provide a healthy environment; use of drugs: perceived by both the students and teachers in the institution itself; prevention programs: there are health promotion and prevention programs available at the school. According to the students' and teachers' perceptions, the school represents a risk factor.El presente trabajo tuvo como objetivo conocer y describir los factores protectores en relación con el consumo de drogas, que son considerados por los profesores y alumnos entre 14 y 15 años de edad, de una escuela pública de la ciudad de Santiago de Querétaro, México. Este estudio descriptivo y exploratorio utilizó entrevistas semi-estructuradas y observación no participativa, las cuales fueron aplicadas a 10 alumnos y 5 profesores. Del análisis de los datos surgen tres temáticas: escuela y ambiente escolar: la escuela no favorece un ambiente escolar saludable; consumo de drogas: se observa que tanto los alumnos y maestros consumen drogas en la institución; programas de prevención: la escuela tiene programas de prevención y promoción a la salud, pero no alcanzan a todos los alumnos.

  11. Professor Camillo Negro's Neuropathological Films.

    Chiò, Adriano; Gianetto, Claudia; Dagna, Stella


    Camillo Negro, Professor in Neurology at the University of Torino, was a pioneer of scientific film. From 1906 to 1908, with the help of his assistant Giuseppe Roasenda and in collaboration with Roberto Omegna, one of the most experienced cinematographers in Italy, he filmed some of his patients for scientific and educational purposes. During the war years, he continued his scientific film project at the Military Hospital in Torino, filming shell-shocked soldiers. In autumn 2011, the Museo Nazionale del Cinema, in partnership with the Faculty of Neurosciences of the University of Torino, presented a new critical edition of the neuropathological films directed by Negro. The Museum's collection also includes 16 mm footage probably filmed in 1930 by Doctor Fedele Negro, Camillo's son. One of these films is devoted to celebrating the effects of the so-called "Bulgarian cure" on Parkinson's disease.

  14. Memorial to Professor Antonio Barone

    Tafuri, Francesco; Pepe, Giampiero; Vaglio, Ruggero


    Antonio Barone prematurely passed away on 4 December 2011 at the age of 72, after a one-year battle with cancer. He left behind his wife Sveva and his two sons, Alberto and Livio. Antonio was Professor Emeritus at the University of Napoli Federico II, where he had been teaching for about 40 years. The initial research activity of Antonio was in the field of nuclear physics. In this context, almost 45 years ago, the Ge 'Lithium drift' semiconductor detectors represented a novelty, due to the high energy resolution enabled by those devices. Superconductors stimulated new approaches to radiation detection and this motivated Antonio's interest towards superconductivity. Following the birth of the Laboratorio di Cibernetica of the CNR in 1967 he was given the opportunity to work on a joint USA-Italy project (University of Wisconsin, Madison and CNR Naples) in the field of superconductivity on the peculiar subject of the superconductive 'Neuristors'. His research activity on Josephson junctions opened up a wide variety of very stimulating subjects in which he was deeply involved, ranging from the soliton propagation in 'long' Josephson structures to fluctuations phenomena, from light-sensitive junctions and proximity effect to the development of innovative superconducting devices. The strong interaction of Antonio with the Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics of the Academy of Sciences in Moscow, characterizes a long period of his research activity with a precious merging of theoretical and experimental aspects. This body of work converged into the famous monograph on the 'Physics and Applications of the Josephson Effect', written in collaboration with Gianfranco Paternò in 1982. This rapidly became the reference text for the Josephson effect, as documented by thousands of citations and the fact that it was translated into Russian, Japanese and Chinese. In 1983 Antonio was awarded the highest academic title of 'Doctor of the Physical-Mathematical Sciences' by the

  16. OBITUARY: Professor Jan Evetts in memoriam

    Dew-Hughes, David; Campbell, Archie; Glowacki, Bartek


    It is with great sadness that we report the death of Jan Evetts, who lost his second battle with cancer on 18 August 2005. In 1988 he was appointed Founding Editor of this journal where his leadership created the foundation upon which its success rests today. He made an outstanding series of contributions to the science of superconductivity and to the understanding of superconducting materials, and was an indefatigable champion of the development of applications of superconductivity. The loss to the scientific community is incalculable, as is attested by the many communications received from colleagues throughout the world. Professor Jan Edgar Evetts (1939-2005) Professor Jan Edgar Evetts (1939-2005) Jan was born on 31 March 1939, and attended the Dragon School in Oxford, and later Haileybury. He was awarded an exhibition to read Natural Sciences at Pembroke College, Cambridge in 1958 and took his BA degree in 1961. He then undertook a Certificate of Postgraduate Study in Physics under the supervision of Professor Neville Mott. He was the first student to undertake this newly-instituted course; the title of his thesis was `The Resistance of Transition Metals'. In 1962 he joined David Dew-Hughes' embryonic superconducting materials research group, along with Archie Campbell and Anant Narlikar. In fact it was Jan's enthusiasm for the proposed course of research that helped convince David that he should follow Professor Alan Cottrell's suggestion to apply metallurgical methodology to the study of the factors that controlled critical current density in the type II superconductors that were then under development for applications in magnets. Competing theories for the critical current density at that time were fine filaments or `Mendelssohn Sponge' versus the pinning of Abrikosov quantized vortices. The results of the group's work, to which Jan made a major contribution, came down heavily in favour of the latter theory. Jan's outstanding characteristic was his

    Full Text Available Today, I want to believe in the old saying that the soul, the spirit of the departed lingers on for a while among the living. I like to believe our homage here today will somehow reach Stelian Petrescu, our professor, colleague, mentor and coworker, who put his passion, talent, love and devotion into serving the chemical engineering school in Iaşi. His life and work have been closely related to our Faculty of Chemical Engineering and Environmental Protection. In 1975, he graduated from the Faculty of Industrial Chemistry of the Polytechnic Institute with a degree in the Technology of Inorganic Substances, and in 1980, he went on to teach at the “Gheorghe Asachi” Technical University in Iaşi, where he gradually built an exceptional career. In 1987, he earned a PhD in chemical engineering, and he became a full professor in 1996. A hard worker and brilliant researcher, Professor Petrescu has published over 15 books and textbooks and over 150 valuable scientific articles. He was also the author of over 40 patents, many of which received awards at international invention fairs. An outstanding member of the group of teachers with the Chemical Engineering Department, which he has run and coordinated for a long time, he has contributed to the education of over 30 generations of engineers and the development of a new generation of doctors in chemical engineering. He was beloved and held in high regard both by his students and his colleagues. Professor Petrescu has left this world prematurely, unexpectedly and unjustly. We will all miss him and will surely remember all the wonderful times we spent together. On behalf of his colleagues and students, I would like to extend my deepest condolences to his family.

  18. Answering Wicked Questions: Dealing With Opposing Truths as a Nursing Associate Professor.

    Topp, Robert; Hershberger, Patricia E; Bratt, Marilyn


    Nursing associate professors frequently are confronted with increasing responsibilities and fewer resources. These challenges commonly contribute to declines in job satisfaction and may result in departing academe. This article addresses these challenges by providing answers to four common "wicked questions" experienced by nursing associate professors: (a) How do I decline a request from a supervisor to take on additional responsibilities while continuing to support the mission of the school and advance my own scholarly productivity? (b) How do I handle the workload of multiple doctoral students with a variety of content areas that are different from my own and maintain my own level of productivity? (c) How do I handle expectations for more service, and leadership for the school, university, and professional organizations, yet the teaching and research responsibilities have not changed or have increased? and (d) What are some additional tips to being a more productive nursing associate professor?

Antigos paradigmas estabelecidos têm sido colocados em xeque e o professor que antes dominava todo o conteúdo tem dado lugar a um novo tipo de profissional, capaz de mobilizar os conhecimentos, transformando-os em ação. Temos hoje a necessidade de um professor profissional capaz de organizar situações de aprendizagem, com autonomia para tomar decisões ao mesmo tempo em que seja capaz de refletir acerca de sua própria ação. Neste trabalho estaremos apresentando uma proposta de capacitação de Educação Tecnológica para professores em exercício no Ensino Fundamental, ao mesmo tempo em que classificamos através de uma análise qualitativa de estudo de caso, as opiniões que os mesmos apresentam sobre o que venha a ser tecnologia. Este levantamento é fundamental para se estabelecer um consenso, visto que a tecnologia é tratada de maneira bastante diversificada e na maioria das vezes de forma errônea seja a nível informal ou ainda em propostas oficiais. The present society goes through fast transformations. Old established paradigms have been placed in xeque and the teachers who used to dominated all the content have given place to a new professional that is able to mobilize the knowledge and transform it into action. Today, we need a professional teacher able to organize learning situations with autonomy in the way to make decisions and at the same time where he is able to reflect about his own action. So, in this paper we present a proposal of a continuous technological education course to working teachers and the classification of their opinion about technology that was obtained through a case study. We think that this survey is important to establish a consensus that the technology is treated by people as formal or informal level in most of time in diversified and wrong way.

  1. The housekeeper and the professor a novel

    Ogawa, Yoko


    He is a brilliant math Professor with a peculiar problem—ever since a traumatic head injury, he has lived with only eighty minutes of short-term memory. She is an astute young Housekeeper—with a ten-year-old son—who is hired to care for the Professor. And every morning, as the Professor and the Housekeeper are introduced to each other anew, a strange and beautiful relationship blossoms between them. Though he cannot hold memories for long (his brain is like a tape that begins to erase itself every eighty minutes), the Professor's mind is still alive with elegant equations from the past. And the numbers, in all of their articulate order, reveal a sheltering and poetic world to both the Housekeeper and her young son. The Professor is capable of discovering connections between the simplest of quantities—like the Housekeeper's shoe size—and the universe at large, drawing their lives ever closer and more profoundly together, even as his memory slips away. Yoko Ogawa's The Housekeeper and the Professo...

    Full Text Available O papel da linguagem no processo de interpretação é central, pois é somente por meio de uma manifestação textual (oral ou visual, que detectamos as representações. Neste artigo pretendemos mostrar a representação construída do profissional professor do Brasil. Para isso, foi necessário levantar suas características em situação de trabalho, bem como suas semelhanças e diferenças entre essas imagens, de acordo com o contexto. O conhecimento da história da profissão é indispensável para compreender como se construiu a docência e seu avanço ao longo do tempo. Verifica-se uma luta de representação num mesmo período e com o mesmo profissional: ora o professor é valorizado por sua paciência e bondade, ora é reconhecido por seu autoritarismo. No entanto, no mundo de hoje, com seus múltiplos problemas reais e prementes, faz com que o professor tenha de oscilar seu papel tradicional para o de outros profissionais. Além disso, circula no imaginário popular um modelo ideal de professor que coaduna com um professor cuja imagem ainda é de redenção.

A total of 16 teachers of the 5th to 8th grades participated in the study. Data were collected through associations elaborated by teachers in response to the expression: drugs use/abuse. The teacher's representations are organized around a central concept - the vulnerable other: a needy adolescent, who becomes drugs user, highlighting the family, everyday coping, and the school's (invisibility in prevention actions, as factors related. The complexity of factors involving drugs production, distribution and its commercialization, demands the implementation of actions that go beyond the scopes of education and health.

(Breton Title: Dificuldades de Professores dos Anos Iniciais do Ensino Fundamental em Relação ao Ensino da Astronomia. ) Dificultades de LOS Profesores de los Primeros Años de la Escuela Primaria en Relación a la Enseñanza de la Astronomía

    Langhi, Rodolfo; Nardi, Roberto


    This paper reports Primary School teachers' discourses analysis about their difficulties related to the teaching of Astronomy. It reports partial data of a master's level research carried out in the last two years, named "An exploratory study for inserting Astronomy in primary school teachers' education" (LANGHI, 2004). The study took into consideration students' and teachers' common sense conceptions about astronomical phenomena, conceptual mistakes in textbooks, and Astronomy's suggestions given by the PCN (Parâmetros Curriculares Nacionais - The Brazilian National Curriculum Standards). The paper aims to characterize teachers' difficulties, in order to provide subsides to the implementation of an initial or continuing education program. This study is justified by the fact that courses plans like these only will be adapted to the teacher's (and students') reality, if there is a primary investigation about what the teachers really need to know about Astronomy. This fact was possible here by the enunciations interpretation of a teachers' sample using semi-structured interviews, according to discourse analysis procedures. The research outcomes show difficulties related to factors like: those of personal order, methodological, on teacher's formation, educational infrastructure and other related to information sources for educators. Este artigo, que relata as dificuldades de professores em relação ao ensino da Astronomia, faz parte de um estudo exploratório para a inserção da Astronomia na formação de professores dos anos iniciais do Ensino Fundamental. Esse estudo leva em consideração as concepções alternativas de alunos e professores sobre fenômenos astronômicos, os erros conceituais em livros didáticos e as sugestões de conteúdos de Astronomia constantes nos PCN (Parâmetros Curriculares Nacionais). Caracterizar as dificuldades dos professores é a questão central deste texto, apontando para o objetivo de contribuir com subsídios para um futuro

If deviating to solve the premise and fundamental problems of the high school curriculum reform, any rhetorical question and answer discussing curriculum reform case by case all have no solution. The development of high school education in China is at a crossroads. High school education is public basic education or elite high school education ; is the foundation laying every student' s personality and scholastic development or keen on discovering and developing top - notch talent. These are the unavoidable problems. A series of basic research on high school curriculum construction has been urgent, particularly needing to focus on the research on curriculum standard, subject construction and teacher energy. The study of problems of the high school curriculum reform should bundle to- gether with teacher education problems and go through persistent system research, while Children study, Teachers study and Teaching materials study are the lifeline of teacher education.

  13. Professor Attitudes and Beliefs about Teaching Evolution

    Barnes, Maryann Elizabeth

    Teaching evolution has been shown to be a challenge for faculty, in both K-12 and postsecondary education. Many of these challenges stem from perceived conflicts not only between religion and evolution, but also faculty beliefs about religion, it's compatibility with evolutionary theory, and it's proper role in classroom curriculum. Studies suggest that if educators engage with students' religious beliefs and identity, this may help students have positive attitudes towards evolution. The aim of this study was to reveal attitudes and beliefs professors have about addressing religion and providing religious scientist role models to students when teaching evolution. 15 semi-structured interviews of tenured biology professors were conducted at a large Midwestern universiy regarding their beliefs, experiences, and strategies teaching evolution and particularly, their willingness to address religion in a class section on evolution. Following a qualitative analysis of transcripts, professors did not agree on whether or not it is their job to help students accept evolution (although the majority said it is not), nor did they agree on a definition of "acceptance of evolution". Professors are willing to engage in students' religious beliefs, if this would help their students accept evolution. Finally, professors perceived many challenges to engaging students' religious beliefs in a science classroom such as the appropriateness of the material for a science class, large class sizes, and time constraints. Given the results of this study, the author concludes that instructors must come to a consensus about their goals as biology educators as well as what "acceptance of evolution" means, before they can realistically apply the engagement of student's religious beliefs and identity as an educational strategy.

Considerando ser na família que se inicia o contato com textos escritos e que é função da escola oferecer o ensino e a diversidade da linguagem escrita, o presente artigo objetiva analisar e discutir as práticas de letramento que permeiam os meios familiar e escolar de um grupo de crianças surdas. A pesquisa foi desenvolvida com 12 professores do ensino regular e 12 pais, tendo como foco alunos surdos, que freqüentam no contraturno, o Centro de Atendimento Especializado em Surdez (CAES em município da região metropolitana de Curitiba. Com os pais foram desenvolvidas entrevistas enfatizando as práticas de leitura no âmbito familiar. Com os professores foram utilizados questionários (questões fechadas e abertas, enfocando aspectos referentes a práticas de leitura e escrita em sala de aula. Os resultados demonstram que as práticas de leitura são restritas no âmbito familiar, o que implica em refletir sobre como a criança surda está sendo inserida no mundo da escrita e constituindo-se (ou não como sujeito letrado. Da mesma forma, no espaço escolar as práticas de leitura e escrita são constituídas, ainda, em grande parte a partir do uso do livro didático, o que revela a falta de diversidade de gênero textual em sala de aula.Meaningful experiences in reading and writing have a major role in constituting subjects who see themselves as readers and authors. Early on, deaf children generally have little participation in social practices related to writing, which puts them at a disadvantage in relation to their expectations and hypotheses about this mode. Considering that children

    Full Text Available O artigo analisa a formação de professores pelas escolas normais em São Paulo no período de 1890 até 1931, época pautada pela adoção no Sistema Escolar do ideário do Iluminismo republicano. De acordo com o espírito de federação que tomou conta do País e as ideias iluministas, alinhadas com o Positivismo e com as concepções liberais, a escola pública devia se aperfeiçoar e expandir. As escolas normais foram as instituições ideais para essa formação e, ao mesmo tempo, indicava-se que as mulheres possuíam todas as qualificações para se encarregarem do ensino de crianças. As tentativas de implantar o sistema coeducativo, visando educação igual para os dois sexos, proposta que sofreu restrições das famílias, dos educadores e da Igreja Católica ocasionaram algumas discussões que acabaram por cair no vazio em vista das questões educacionais mais prementes.The article analyses the training of teachers by normal schools in Sao Paulo from 1890 to 1931, period guided by the adoption in the school system of ideas of the Republican Enlightenment. According to the spirit of federation that took over the country and the Enlightenment ideas, aligned with the positivism and the liberal conceptions, the public school should be improving and expanding. The normal schools were the ideal institutions for such training and at the same time, indicated that women have all the qualifications to take care of the children education. Attempts to deploy the co-educational system, targeting equal education for the two sexes, proposal which has restrictions on families, educators and the Catholic Church, it caused some discussions that ultimately fall into the void in light of the most pressing educational issues.

  8. Professor Witold Nowicki - a greatly spirited pathologist.

    Wincewicz, A; Szepietowska, A; Sulkowski, S


    This paper presents a complete overview of the scientific, professional and social activity of a great Polish pathologist, Witold Nowicki (1878-1941), from mainly Polish-written, original sources with a major impact on mostly his own publications. The biographical commemoration of this eminent professor is not only due to the fact that he provided a profound microscopic characterization of pneumatosis cystoides in 1909 and 1924. Nowicki greatly influenced the development of anatomical pathology in Poland, having authored over 82 publications, with special reference to tuberculosis, lung cancer, sarcomatous carcinomas, scleroma and others. However, the first of all his merits for the readership of Polish pathologists was his textbook titled Anatomical Pathology, which was a basic pathology manual in pre-war Poland. Witold Nowicki - as the head of the academic pathological anatomy department and former dean of the medical faculty - was shot with other professors by Nazi Germans in the Wuleckie hills in Lvov during World War Two. Professor Nowicki was described as being "small in size but great in spirit" by one of his associates, and remains an outstanding example of a meticulous pathologist, a patient tutor and a great social activist to follow.

    Aleksandar Despic


    Full Text Available Professor Dragutin Drazic was born on May 5, 1930, in Belgrade. His father, Milan Drazic, was a professor at the Faculty of Civil Engineering of the University of Belgrade, while his mother, Zorka, was also a civil engineer working for the City of Belgrade. These facts, as well as the entire intellectual entourage in the “Professors’ Colony” in Belgrade, predetermined his orientation to natural sciences and engineering. Thus, after finishing elementary school before WWII and secondary school by 1949, he entered the Faculty of Science and Mathematics (Department of Chemistry of the University of Belgrade. After his first year of study, he changed the school, enlisting in the faculty of Chemical Engineering (“Faculty of Technology” of the same University. He graduated from the Department of Chemical Technology with the highest grade in 1956. After graduation, he joined the teaching staff of the same school, in the Department of Physical Chemistry and Electrochemistry, in which he spent his entire career, commencing as an assistant lecturer and becoming a full professor. His affinity for science was supported by his wife Vera (b. Kuharic who was in the same profession and also became a university professor in physical chemistry. The family tradition continued with their two sons, Milan and Dusan, who also joined the academic world, becoming capable mathematician and computer scientists. Profesor Drazic taught very successfully a variety of subjects, such as Electrode Kinetics, Corrosion, Electrochemical Double Layer and Adsorption (postgraduate and finally, Physical Chemistry – a General Course. At the height of his professional career he was the Head of the Chair and Department of Physical Chemistry and Electrochemistry for several years.

  16. Three Decades Investigating Humor and Laughter: An Interview With Professor Rod Martin

    Rod Martin


    Full Text Available Since the start of the 21st century, the investigation of various psychological aspects of humor and laughter has become an increasingly prominent topic of research. This growth can be attributed, in no small part, to the pioneering and creative work on humor and laughter conducted by Professor Rod Martin. Dr. Martin’s research interests in humor and laughter began in the early 1980s and continued throughout his 32 year long career as a professor of clinical psychology at the University of Western Ontario. During this time, Dr. Martin published numerous scholarly articles, chapters, and books on psychological aspects of humor and laughter. Professor Martin has just retired in July 2016, and in the present interview he recounts a number of research highlights of his illustrious career. Dr. Martin’s earliest influential work, conducted while he was still in graduate school, stemmed from an individual difference perspective that focused on the beneficial effects of sense of humor on psychological well-being. This research focus remained evident in many of Professor Martin’s subsequent investigations, but became increasingly refined as he developed several measures of different components of sense of humor, including both adaptive and maladaptive humor styles. In this interview, Dr. Martin describes the conceptualization, development and use of the Humor Styles Questionnaire, along with suggestions for future research and development. In doing so, he also discusses the three main components of humor (i.e., cognitive, emotional and interpersonal, as well as the distinctions and similarities between humor and laughter. Further highlights of this interview include Professor Martin’s comments on such diverse issues as the genetic versus environmental loadings for sense of humor, the multifaceted nature of the construct of humor, and the possible limitations of teaching individuals to use humor in a beneficial manner to cope with stress and

    Oldimar Pontes Cardoso


    Full Text Available Este artigo apresenta alguns resultados de uma pesquisa de campo realizada em 2002 com o objetivo de compreender como os professores de História do ensino médio representam o saber histórico escolar que produzem cotidianamente na relação com seus alunos. A pesquisa foi formulada com base na teoria das representações de Henri Lefebvre e adotou a metodologia da observação participante interpretativa proposta por Frederick Erickson. Foram observadas aulas de quatro professores de História de uma escola da rede oficial de ensino do Estado de São Paulo durante todo o ano letivo. A análise dos dados sugere que as representações dos professores são marcadas pela oposição sistemática aos chamados "professores tradicionais" e aos "historiadores positivistas".This article presents some results of a field research carried out in 2002 with the aim of understanding how History teachers in the secondary school represent the school historical knowledge produced daily in their relationship with the students. The research was formulated based on Henri Lefebvre's representation theory and adopted an interpretative participant observation methodology proposed by Frederick Erickson. Four government school teachers in the State of Sao Paulo were observed during the whole academic year. The data analysis suggests that the teachers' representations are marked by a systematic opposition to the so called.

  2. Analysis of professors' perceptions towards institutional redevelopment of brownfield sites in Alabama

    King, Berkley Nathaniel, Jr.

    This study was conducted to analyze professors' perceptions on the institutional redevelopment of brownfield sites into usable greenspaces. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (2016) refers to brownfields as sites, (either facility or land) under public law § 107-118 (H.R. 2869), which are contaminated with a substance that is classified as a hazard or a pollutant. Usable greenspaces, however, are open spaces or any open piece of land that is undeveloped, has no buildings or other built structures, and is accessible to the public (EPA, 2015). Open green spaces provide recreational areas for residents and help to enhance the beauty and environmental quality of neighborhoods (EPA, 2015). In addition, in a study conducted by Dadvand et al. (2015), exposure to green space has been associated with better physical and mental health among elementary school children, and this exposure, according to Dadvand et al., could also influence cognitive development. Because of the institutional context provided in these articles and other research studies, a sequential mixed-methods study was conducted that investigated the perceptions of professors towards the redevelopment of brownfields near their campuses. This study provided demographics of forty-two college and university professors employed at two institutions in the state of Alabama, a southeastern region of the United States. Survey questions were structured to analyze qualitative data. The secondary method of analysis utilized descriptive statistics to measure the most important indicators that influences professors' perceptions. The collection of quantitative data was adapted from an instrument designed by Wernstedt, Crooks, & Hersh (2003). Findings from the study showed that professors are knowledgeable and aware of the sociological and economic challenges in low income communities where brownfields are geographically located. Pseudonyms are used for the three universities which were contacted. Findings also

    Full Text Available In the last years, higher education teacher training has received more didactic-pedagogical attention. Despite numerous criticisms to professors' work, some practices present differentials that make them a reference to students, even among university professors with undergraduate and graduate degrees in their specific areas of knowledge. To analyze the classes of such professors who become a reference to students, we selected two higher education professors of chemistry and videotaped their classes seeking to identify the teaching strategies that they use. After analysis, we shared the results with the subjects and complemented them with a semi-structured interview. We found out that these professors perform based on counter-models of professors who they had had in their undergraduate courses and developed strategies aiming to minimize for their students the difficulties they themselves had experienced.

  4. Habitus professoral na sala de aula virtual

    Alexandre Marinho Pimenta


    Full Text Available Entendendo que a indiferença na ação pedagógica contribui para a reprodução das desigualdades no sistema de ensino, o presente artigo busca captar, a partir de entrevistas semiestruturadas, traços do habitus de professores supervisores de disciplinas do curso de Licenciatura em Pedagogia na modalidade a distância na Universidade de Brasília - UnB no âmbito do Sistema Universidade Aberta do Brasil - UAB. As orientações metodológicas de Bourdieu (2007 foram um dos elementos orientadores na análise das entrevistas, considerando ainda o uso heurístico do conceito de habitus. Conclui-se que o habitus professoral envolve esforços voluntários em busca de uma ação pedagógica diferenciada. No entanto, ele é ambíguo e condescendente frente aos limites do modelo de EaD no âmbito da UAB. Ao fim, os dados analisados permitem fornecer elementos para reorientação político-pedagógica que vise a um novo modelo de EaD nacional.

    Full Text Available Com aproximadamente 50 anos de experiências profissionais variadas em Geografia, o Professor Salomon Turnowski se revela, até hoje, um apaixonado por nosso campo de conhecimento. Em entrevista realizada pela equipe da Revista Giramundo, em junho de 2009, na Unidade Escolar Humaitá II, a disposição de contar sua trajetória parece movida pelos comentários a respeito de nossa ciência, de suas transformações e de sua paixão pelos livros. Atuante no Colégio Pedro II, onde lecionou entre 1984 e 2009, no IBGE e na antiga FIDERJ (Fundação Instituto de Desenvolvimento do Estado do Rio de Janeiro, entre outros, seu depoimento se revela, portanto, uma oportunidade para conhecer um pouco mais sobre sujeitos e instituições voltados à construção da Geografia no Brasil e no Rio de Janeiro, assim como sobre os contrastes entre as vivências de geógrafos e de professor. Fica aqui o registro acerca da experiência valiosa e diversificada desse profissional, assim como uma singela homenagem.

Buscamos identificar qual a concepção atribuída ao esporte e à competição, bem como verificar qual o sentido da prática esportiva nesse contexto. Numa pesquisa do tipo qualitativa foram coletadas informações a partir de uma ficha diagnóstica das escolas, além de uma entrevista semiestruturada com esses profissionais. Uma pergunta geradora norteava a investigação: Como você vê a relação Esporte/Educação Física? As respostas obtidas foram interpretadas por meio da técnica de análise de conteúdo, BARDIN (2004. O estudo consta de duas etapas, na primeira está uma revisão bibliográfica sobre as questões que permeiam a prática esportiva na Educação Física escolar no Ensino Médio e, na segunda, o desenvolvimento metodológico dessa pesquisa. Os resultados apresentados apontam o esporte relacionado aos seguintes temas: esporte e educação, que declara uma falta de compromisso por parte dos docentes; esporte e saúde, que se configura com equívocos conceituais; esporte e competição, que demonstra uma ênfase na prática seletiva; esporte como um aspecto cultural, visto como fundamental na contribuição à cultura da sociedade; esporte na perspectiva das modalidades tradicionais, definido como únicas perspectivas de prática pedagógica, esporte e inclusão, que revela a predominância das atividades exclusivas aos mais hábeis.This study investigated the view that the physical education teacher, who works in high school, has about the application of sport in their classes at school.

    Sara L. Sohr-Preston


    Full Text Available Undergraduate psychology students rated expectations of a bogus professor (randomly designated a man or woman and hot versus not hot based on an online rating and sample comments as found on (RMP. Five professor qualities were derived using principal components analysis (PCA: dedication, attractiveness, enhancement, fairness, and clarity. Participants rated current psychology professors on the same qualities. Current professors were divided based on gender (man or woman, age (under 35 or 35 and older, and attractiveness (at or below the median or above the median. Using multivariate analysis of covariance (MANCOVA, students expected hot professors to be more attractive but lower in clarity. They rated current professors as lowest in clarity when a man and 35 or older. Current professors were rated significantly lower in dedication, enhancement, fairness, and clarity when rated at or below the median on attractiveness. Results, with previous research, suggest numerous factors, largely out of professors’ control, influencing how students interpret and create professor ratings. Caution is therefore warranted in using online ratings to select courses or make hiring and promotion decisions.

    The implementation of medical professionalism in education and evaluation is a recent trend in medical education. Although many studies on the subject have been carried out, they have generally been not focused specifically on the level of medical student professionalism, and the perception gaps between medical students and professors on this topic remain unresolved. This study attempts to determine whether such gaps exist. Two hundred fifty fourth-year medical students and 53 professors who were randomly selected from 41 medical schools were asked to complete a survey on the level of the professionalism of medical students. Using 31 core professionalism elements that are required for Korean medical students, students self-assessed their level of professionalism, and professors evaluated the professionalism level of medical students who were about to graduate. Of the 31 core elements, significant perception gaps were found in 28 elements. The three domains into which the 31 core elements were divided - professional knowledge, professional skills, and professional attitude - all contained perception gaps, and professors' ratings generally were higher than those of the students, a noteworthy observation. Medical professors need to encourage their students to elevate their professionalism. Furthermore, what the faculty think that they have taught regarding professionalism may not be fully assimilated by students. Therefore, further research is essential to determine the cause of such perceptional differences.

  14. The praxis of Higher Education professors A prática dos professores do Ensino Superior

    Glícia Gripp


    Full Text Available This article is based on a research about teaching praxes held in 2007 and 2008, and in another research, which began in 2009 and is still in course. This text aims at understanding the mechanisms involved in the way teaching is structured and the differentiated implication of professors in the different components of their profession. From the qualitative analysis of data obtained through interviews, questionnaires, educational census, analysis of the curricula of professors from different institutions, of all regions of the country and of different areas, I concluded that the work of the professor is multidetermined, depending on the organization and the internal forces of the institution in which they work, of their insertion in the disciplinary fi eld, the relations between disciplines and wider political forces in society. Keywords: Sociology of education. Academic profession. Academic praxes. Higher education. Este artigo é baseado em uma pesquisa sobre as práticas docentes, realizada em 2007 e 2008 e em outra, iniciada em 2009, ainda em andamento. Busca compreender os mecanismos intervenientes no modo de estruturação do trabalho docente e a implicação diferenciada dos professores nos diversos componentes de sua profi ssão. A partir da análise qualitativa dos dados obtidos a partir de entrevistas, respostas a um questionário, dados do censo educacional, análise de currículo de professores de instituições diversas, de todas as regiões do país, e de áreas diversas, conclui que o trabalho do professor é multideterminado, dependendo da forma organizacional e das forças internas da instituição na qual exerce seu ofício, da sua inserção no campo disciplinar, das relações entre as disciplinas e das forças políticas mais amplas da sociedade.

  15. Professors' Facebook content affects students' perceptions and expectations.

    Sleigh, Merry J; Smith, Aimee W; Laboe, Jason


    Abstract Facebook users must make choices about level of self-disclosure, and this self-disclosure can influence perceptions of the profile's author. We examined whether the specific type of self-disclosure on a professor's profile would affect students' perceptions of the professor and expectations of his classroom. We created six Facebook profiles for a fictitious male professor, each with a specific emphasis: politically conservative, politically liberal, religious, family oriented, socially oriented, or professional. Undergraduate students randomly viewed one profile and responded to questions that assessed their perceptions and expectations. The social professor was perceived as less skilled but more popular, while his profile was perceived as inappropriate and entertaining. Students reacted more strongly and negatively to the politically focused profiles in comparison to the religious, family, and professional profiles. Students reported being most interested in professional information on a professor's Facebook profile, yet they reported being least influenced by the professional profile. In general, students expressed neutrality about their interest in finding and friending professors on Facebook. These findings suggest that students have the potential to form perceptions about the classroom environment and about their professors based on the specific details disclosed in professors' Facebook profiles.

    trabalho docente ante os desafios da escola secundária argentina, destacadamente observando que: é muito difícil isolar os impactos gerados por um docente, em particular na formação dos alunos; que os efeitos do trabalho docente operam em conjunto com fatores exógenos à escola e; que a valorização e as consequências da formação promovida na escola para os alunos, por vezes, só ocorre muito tempo após o encerramento do período escolar. Por fim, o trabalho encerra com a ideia de que os alunos e suas famílias e os próprios docentes não se equivocam no que se refere à imagem que representa um bom professor. Ocorre que o problema para a expansão desta realidade se articula com as ações dos sistemas de ensino em favor de uma expansão da escolarização, mas sem as devidas condições para a ampliação da qualidade do trabalho docente.This article presents an analysis of secondary school teachers in Argentina, considering the existence of a crisis in the traditional model of school of this school stage, suggesting that the conditions of teachers and students have changed, as other social conditions have changed. However, the school haven't accompanied those changes.This article uses data from the National Census of Teachers in Argentina between 1994 and 2004 and the results show a broad overview of teachers' work facing thehigh school challenges in Argentina, especially noting that it's very difficult to isolate the impacts generated by a teacher in particular on students; that the effects of teaching work together with exogenous factors at school; that the recovery and the consequences of the formation promoted to students, sometimes only occur a long time after the school time. Finally, this work closes with the idea that students and their families and teachers themselves usually are not mistaken with the image that represents a good teacher. What occurs is that the expansion problem of this reality is linked to the actions of the education systems in

  14. Proprioception and person perception: politicians and professors.

    Slepian, Michael L; Rule, Nicholas O; Ambady, Nalini


    Social-categorical knowledge is partially grounded in proprioception. In Study 1, participants describing "hard" and "soft" politicians, and "hard" and "soft" scientists used different "hard" and "soft" traits for the two groups, suggesting that the meaning of these traits is context specific. Studies 2 to 4 showed that both meanings were supported by hard and soft proprioception. Consistent with political stereotypes, perceivers viewing faces while handling a hard ball were more likely to categorize them as Republicans rather than as Democrats, compared to perceivers viewing the same faces while handling a soft ball (Study 2). Similarly, consistent with stereotypes of "hard" and "soft" academic disciplines, perceivers were more likely to categorize photographs of professors as physicists than historians when handling a hard versus soft ball (Study 3). Finally, thinking about Republicans and Democrats led participants to perceive a ball as harder or softer, respectively, suggesting that simulating proprioception might aid social-categorical thinking (Study 4).

  15. A Working Day of Professor Hu Yamei

At the start of her career in the 1950s, she focused on nutritional anemia that afflicts children, developing treatment and methods of prevention. Later she researched etiology, pathology and physiology of pediatric toxic indigestion, helping to reduce the child death rate from 20 percent to 1 percent. Over the past 20 years, she has concentrated on pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia. As a result, the five-years living rate of the disease treated by Hu’s group has reached 74 percent, approaching the highest level in the world.

Among his works are: Public Moralists (1991); Matthew Arnold, A Critical Portrait (1994), and English Pasts (1999). He has also edited works by John Stuart Mill, Matthew Arnold, C.P. Snow, and Umberto Eco. In his interview, he does not believe that Snow's Two Cultures has any important direct relation to literature, but he thinks that F.R. Leavis is a far more important and rewarding figure than Snow. He claims that there is always a tendency for ″moral″ criticism to underplay the significance of matters of form and to undervalue the lighter genres. He also talks about how to understand the literary criticism and theory, the methodology for literary study and comparative literature studies. In this interview, he gives some advice to Chinese literary graduates how to understand the literary theory and criticism, and how to do literary studies.Professor Stefan Collini, FBA, (English Faculty, University of Cambridge) works principally on the relations between literature and intellectual history in the 19th and 20th centuries. He is the author of Liberalism and Sociology (1979), That Noble Science of Politics (1983), Public Moralists (1991), Matthew Arnold: A Critical Portrait (1994), and English Pasts (1999); he has edited works by J.S. Mill, Matthew Arnold, Umberto Eco, and C.P. Snow; and he has recently published essays on T.S. Eliot, F.R.

    Full Text Available Nowadays sophisticated authoring tools allow developers to design and develop sophisticated web sites, in a fraction of the time that was required a few years ago. These tools have also allowed non-experienced users to create their own web pages, contributing in that sense to the expansion of the Internet. Nevertheless, while most of these sites are technically correct (links work fine, they too often result to be very difficult, and sometimes impossible, to be used. Our position is that the use of development tools is not sufficient. The development of web sites, as any other software requires of a methodology that maximizes the chances of the project success. In this paper we present a user-centered methodology employed in the development of a web site that will help physics professors of high school to communicate among them, and to share their experiences. The characteristics of the methodology and its different stages are detailed in this paper and the final product is presented as well as future works.

  4. Teachers perception about epilepsy Percepção de professores sobre epilepsia

    Paula T. Fernandes


    Full Text Available PURPOSE: To identify in a town of Brazil the knowledge, attitude and perception of epilepsy in teachers of elementary schools and to compare these before and after a training exercise. METHODS: Teachers of nine public schools of Barão Geraldo, Campinas, Brazil completed a questionnaire. Two researchers had meetings with teachers, presenting the Global Campaign "Epilepsy out of the shadows", when the questionnaire was first completed by all attendees. Twenty teachers of these schools were motivated to attend a training course entitled "Epilepsy and Health" as part of their continuous education programme. Two years later the same questionnaire was again completed (post-test by these 20 teachers. RESULTS: 100 teachers originally completed the questionnaire (97 women, mean age 42 years, 64 married. Forty-three percent of teachers said that they had enough knowledge regarding epilepsy and 20% said that they had poor knowledge about the condition. Regarding the IQ of children with epilepsy, 45% of teachers believed that they had average IQ, 18% above average, six percent under average and 29% did not know. Teachers believed that children with epilepsy have a higher possibility of acquiring mental disease in the future (51%; that epilepsy is a disease (68%; that epilepsy is contagious (1%; epilepsy is treatable (90%. After the course, the teachers’ beliefs seem to have improved. DISCUSSION: This work with elementary school teachers identified difficulties related to epilepsy which, if addressed, may help promote better quality of life of people with epilepsy in the community and help to decrease stigma attached to the condition. Better informed teachers are likely to have a more positive attitude and this will be passed to others. Educational campaigns about epilepsy amongst teachers should be encouraged as this may improve the management of epilepsy, by helping to develop a well informed and tolerant community.OBJETIVO: Identificar atitudes e

  5. A expectativa do professor e o desempenho dos alunos

    Tufi Machado Soares

    Full Text Available Este trabalho enfoca dois aspectos fundamentais na interação professor-aluno: a sintonia entre o professor e sua turma, e a expectativa do professor quanto ao desempenho dos alunos. Cruzando-se informações de diferentes instrumentos contextuais, aplicados aos professores e alunos, com os resultados dos testes cognitivos dos alunos, pôde-se identificar os fatores que distorcem a percepção do professor acerca da turma e influenciam sua expectativa. Constatou-se que a expectativa do professor é influenciada por suas percepções em relação ao ambiente escolar e pelas características sociodemográficas dos alunos. Observou-se que a expectativa do professor provoca um impacto positivo na proficiência do aluno, mesmo considerando-se o efeito de variáveis sociodemográficas tradicionalmente associadas ao desempenho. Essas conclusões foram obtidas a partir da construção de modelos hierárquicos.

Os resultados demonstram que 49% dos alunos e 45% dos professores consideram boa a relação professor-aluno. Quando questionados se já haviam sido repreendidos pelos professores na frente do paciente, 35% dos alunos responderam que nunca foram e 65% responderam já terem sido repreendidos pelo menos uma vez. A confiança no ensino foi trabalhada ao se questionar o professor se ele traria um parente para ser tratado nas clínicas do curso e 47% terem respondido positivamente, apontando a confiança no aluno, orientação dos professores e a qualidade do atendimento como norteadores de suas decisões. A relação professor-aluno é considerada boa para ambos, mas alguns fatores foram apontados como interferência negativa na qualidade do processo ensino-aprendizagem, como: a falta de acessibilidade e de interação pedagógica e social entre os atores, a arrogância e a intimidação por parte de professores e a falta de compreensão de limites por parte dos alunos.The aim of this study was to analyze the professor-student relationship at the Federal University of Espírito Santo's school of Dentistry and to discuss the possible impact this relationship has in the teaching-learning process.

  12. Professor Thomas Lehner: archetypal translational scientist.

    Challacombe, S J


    Professor Thomas Lehner is one of the most distinguished oral and dental researchers to have come out of the UK. Over the past 40 years, he has made an astonishing number of discoveries which have had an impact on our understanding of the pathogenesis of a variety of mucosal diseases. He has consistently practiced both basic and clinical research and built an integrated group of clinical and non-clinical researchers, which allowed him easy transition from the laboratory to the clinic. Tom Lehner was among the early scientists studying mucosal immunology, initially exploring oral diseases, with special emphasis on the immunobiology of Streptococcus mutans, leading to active and passive vaccination against dental caries. He was the first to demonstrate cellular immunity as the immunopathological basis of periodontal diseases, recurrent aphthous stomatitis, and candidiasis. Over the past 20 years, his expertise in mucosal immunobiology has been applied to the immunology of HIV/SIV infections. His seminal contributions include regional innate mucosal immunity, prevention of SIV infection in macaques by secretory IgA antibodies, up-regulation of CC chemokines, and the first demonstration of protective CCR5 antibodies. Arguably, his leadership, his students, and the establishment of immunology applied to oral mucosal diseases will be his greatest legacy. His contributions continue unabated.

  5. Exemplary Chinese University Professors: Qualities and Impact on Students

    Eugene P. Kim


    Full Text Available This study focuses on the qualities of Chinese university professors as perceived by their students and the effects of those qualities on student learning and motivation. Specifically, what qualities and personal characteristics do Chinese university students attribute to their favorite and least favorite professors, and how do those qualities and characteristics affect Chinese university students? Out of 280 students surveyed from three different universities, 226 surveys were completed, returned and included in the final analysis (response rate of 80.7%. The research found that Chinese students favored professors who are entertaining, who help them learn more and who provide them with helpful feedback on their assignments. Students disfavor professors who are boring, arrogant and do not provide helpful feedback or help them learn more. Linear regressions revealed a connection between high quality professors and student learning and motivation. Along with other studies, this research provides evidence that effective university professors are those who not only possess expertise in their fields, but in addition are engaging, student-focused and able to build rapport with their students.

  6. [Matthias Flacius Illyricus, the younger, professor philosophiae et logicae aristotelis and professor of the practical medicine].

    Mohorović, Lucijan


    The aim of this paper is to offer some new information on the life and work of Matthias Flacius Illiricus the Younger, especially concerning his activity as a medical doctor and university professor. According to our present knowledge, he published 17 of his writings during his lifetime. Matthias Flacius the Younger was born on September 12, 1547 in Braunschweig. His mother Elisabeth had 11 more children with Matthias Flacius the Elder.When Flacius the Younger was 15 (in 1562), his father sent him to Strassburg to study philosophy. According to some scholars (Waltraut Wienke, 2001), Flacius the Younger arrived to Rostock in August 1572 and was granted the title of magister philosophiae on April 1, 1574. According to the sources, that very year he was enrolled at the Faculty of Medicine in Rostock. On April 27, 1579 he was mentioned as lecturing at the Faculty of Philosophy, where he became Philosophiae & Logicae Aristotelis doctor in 1580. It is interesting that only a year later on September 23, 1581, when he was 33 years old, he became Doctor Medicinae by defending a dissertation entitled "De cattarrho; ward darauf zum Dr Med prom". In 1592 he exchanged his position at the Philosophy Chair in Rostock for the medical one, becoming a professor of Practical Medicine. Matthias Flacius the Younger died on April 27, 1593, when he was 46 years old.

  8. [Professor Hans Otto Lüders].

    Tsuji, Sadatoshi


    Professor Lüders has made significant contributions to Clinical Neurology and particularly to Epilepsy and Clinical Neurophysiology. Some of his most important contributions include the following: 1.He pioneered the use of chronically implanted, large plates of subdural electrodes in the presurgical evaluation of patient who were candidates for epilepsy surgery. These electrodes were used to record epileptic seizures and by electrical stimulation to establish the location of eloquent cortex. Lately he has also advocated the use in the USA of stereotactically implanted depth electrodes for presurgical evaluation of epilepsy patients who had deep seated epileptic foci which were impossible to assess with subdural electrodes. These techniques were imported from Europe. 2.Mapping studies with subdural electrodes led to the discovery of a number of cortical eloquent areas that had not been described before: a. The basal temporal language area located in the dominant fusiform gyrus. b. The "negative motor areas" located in the caudal region of the inferior frontal gyrus (bilaterally) and immediately in mesial frontal pre-SMA region (also bilaterally). He concluded that these "negative motor areas" most likely correspond to praxis regions. c. The dominant posterior fusiform gyrus which plays a crucial role in processing reading material. Stimulation of that area produces "alexia without agraphia". 3.He developed a new classification of epileptic seizures based exclusively on semiological ictal characteristics. With the development of the semiological seizure classification he also defined several new seizure types: a. Dialeptic seizures, b. Hypnopompic seizures, c. Hypomotor seizures. 4.Working with general epilepsy principles, he established the existence of 6 zones that characterize the epilepsies: the epileptogenic zone, the irritative zone, the seizure onset zone, the epileptogenic lesion, the symptomatogenic zone and functional deficit zone. 5.He described the ictal

  14. Reminiscences regarding Professor R.N. Christiansen

    Swarup, Govind


    In this short paper I describe my initiation into the field of radio astronomy fifty years ago, under the guidance of Professor W.N. ('Chris') Christiansen, soon after I joined the C.S.I.R.O.'s Division of Radiophysics (RP) in Sydney, Australia, in 1953 under a 2-year Colombo Plan Fellowship. During the early 1950s Christiansen had developed a remarkable 21 cm interferometric grating array of 32 east-west aligned parabolic dishes and another array of 16 dishes in a north-south direction at Potts Hill. Christiansen and Warburton used these two arrays to scan the Sun strip-wise yielding radio brightness distribution at various position angles. During a three month period I assisted them in making a 2-dimensional map of the Sun by a complex Fourier transform process. In the second year of my Fellowship, Parthasarathy and I converted the 32-antenna east-west grating array to study solar radio emission at 60cm. During this work, I noticed that the procedure adopted by Christiansen for phase adjustment of the grating array was time consuming. Based on this experience, I later developed an innovative technique at Stanford in 1959 for phase adjustment of long transmission lines and paths in space. In a bid to improve on the method used by Christiansen to make a 2-dimensional map of the Sun from strip scans, I suggested to R.N. Bracewell in 1962 a revolutionary method for direct 2-dimensional imaging without Fourier transforms. Bracewell and Riddle developed the method for making a 2-dimensional map of the Moon using strip scans obtained with the 32 element interferometer at Stanford. The method has since revolutionized medical tomography. I describe these developments here to highlight my initial work with Christiansen and to show how new ideas often are developed by necessity and have their origin in prior experience! The 32 Potts Hill solar grating array dishes were eventually donated by the C.S.I.R.0. to India and were set up by me at Kalyan near Mumbai, forming the

  16. In memory of Professor Leonor Michaelis in Nagoya: great contributions to biochemistry in Japan in the first half of the 20th century.

    Nagatsu, Toshiharu Toshi


    Leonor Michaelis spent the years of 1922-1926 as Professor of Biochemistry of the Aichi Medical College (now Graduate School of Medicine, Nagoya University) in Nagoya, Japan. Michaelis succeeded in gathering many bright young biochemists from all over Japan into his laboratory, and made tremendous contributions to the promotion of biochemistry in Japan. Michaelis was invited to many places in Japan to present lectures over those years. Kunio Yagi, who was Professor of Biochemistry at Nagoya University in the second half of the 20th century, succeeded in crystallizing the "Michaelis" enzyme-substrate complex. Historically, Michelis has had an enormous impact on biochemistry in Japan.

  17. [In Memory of a Master: Professor Ernesto L. Medina, M.D. (1925-2013)].

    Radrigán K, María Eugenia


    Seldom, in the history of Chilean medicine, there has been such a unique parallelism between the professional development of a person and that of a discipline as it has been the case of Professor Ernesto L. Medina and Public Health in Chile. Dr. Medina's undergraduate (University of Chile) and postgraduate (Harvard School of Public Health) studies coincided with the foundation of the University of Chile School of Public Health by an agreement among the University and two governmental health care providers, and also with the foundation of the Chilean National Health Service. His research covered the epidemiology of non- infectious diseases in the adult, such as cancer, their socio economic impact, the importance of early detection, treatment and surveillance, as well as the epidemiology of other chronic diseases, accidents and new epidemics. As Director of the School of Public Health for 25 years, he promoted the development of disciplines and courses addressed to health and other care-providers in order to improve their knowledge and expertise as statisticians, epidemiologists, administrators, budget officers. An example of his innovative look at medical education was the creation of post graduate training in the basic clinical specialties combined with public health, in order to have specialists able to undertake both the clinical and administrative duties at the primary care clinics. These programs ran in parallel with the rural internships financed by the Kellogg Foundation at the School of Medicine. Enumerating the distinctions and prizes awarded to Professor Medina would be too long for the purpose of this tribute, and selecting just a few would run the risk of being unfair. Still, there is one: the "Orden de la Cruz del Sur" that deserves the exception given its long existence and the fact that it was awarded to a physician "for distinguished achievements in Public Health".

    McCullough, Bob


    Professor H Winter. It was with great sadness that we learnt of the death of colleague and friend Professor Hannspeter Winter in Vienna on the 8 November 2006. In memory of him and the contribution he made both to our conference and to the field of the physics of highly charged ions we dedicate these proceedings. Hannspeter was one of our distinguished invited speakers at HCI2006 and gave a talk on the status of the ITER programme. His invited paper on the subject is included in these proceedings. Hannspeter will be particularly remembered for his pioneering work on ion-surface interactions that, together with his colleagues at the Vienna University of Technology (TUW), has stimulated a worldwide experimental and theoretical interest in this field. He was appointed Director of the Institut fuer Allgemeine Physik at TUW in 1987 and using both his scientific and management skills has made it one of the leading university physics laboratories in the world. His research publications, of which there are 270, have inspired many others to work in the field of atomic and plasma physics. He was also a great European playing a major role in the EURATOM fusion programme, the European Physical Society and the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics and was an evaluator and advisory board member for many national and international institutions. Hannspeter was also an interesting and friendly social companion with interests in current affairs, music and fine wines and will be greatly missed both on a scientific and social level. Our condolences go to his wife Renate, son Dorian and his relatives. R W McCullough Co-chair HCI2006

  20. Forecasting the student–professor matches that result in unusually effective teaching

    Gross, Jennifer; Lakey, Brian; Lucas, Jessica L; LaCross, Ryan; R Plotkowski, Andrea; Winegard, Bo


    Background Two important influences on students' evaluations of teaching are relationship and professor effects. Relationship effects reflect unique matches between students and professors such that some professors are unusually effective for some students, but not for others. Professor effects reflect inter-rater agreement that some professors are more effective than others, on average across students. Aims We attempted to forecast students' evaluations of live lectures from brief, video-recorded teaching trailers. Sample Participants were 145 college students (74% female) enrolled in introductory psychology courses at a public university in the Great Lakes region of the United States. Methods Students viewed trailers early in the semester and attended live lectures months later. Because subgroups of students viewed the same professors, statistical analyses could isolate professor and relationship effects. Results Evaluations were influenced strongly by relationship and professor effects, and students' evaluations of live lectures could be forecasted from students' evaluations of teaching trailers. That is, we could forecast the individual students who would respond unusually well to a specific professor (relationship effects). We could also forecast which professors elicited better evaluations in live lectures, on average across students (professor effects). Professors who elicited unusually good evaluations in some students also elicited better memory for lectures in those students. Conclusions It appears possible to forecast relationship and professor effects on teaching evaluations by presenting brief teaching trailers to students. Thus, it might be possible to develop online recommender systems to help match students and professors so that unusually effective teaching emerges. PMID:24953773

  1. Obesidade infantil e bullying: a ótica dos professores Obesity in children and bullying: the teachers' viewpoint

    Miguel Ataide Pinto da Costa


    Full Text Available Este estudo objetivou verificar a percepção de professores em relação aos problemas enfrentados por alunos obesos no ambiente escolar, bem como associar tais problemas à definição de bullying. Foram entrevistados 63 professores da rede estadual de um município da região metropolitana do Rio de Janeiro e a eles foi feita uma pergunta aberta referente aos problemas enfrentados pelos alunos acima do peso. Tal pergunta, propositalmente, não mencionava a palavra bullying. Os professores foram abordados pelo pesquisador principal nas escolas, em período destinado ao descanso ou durante momentos em que os alunos estivessem realizando atividades que não necessitassem da intervenção direta do professor. As respostas foram agrupadas em dezessete categorias e os resultados mostraram que, segundo os professores, o problema mais enfrentado pelos alunos acima do peso é o preconceito. Além disso, como problemas enfrentados por esses alunos, ainda foram apontadas a exclusão, a timidez e a baixa autoestima, dentre outros. Os resultados também mostraram atitudes negativas do professor com relação aos alunos, os quais algumas vezes foram descritos como apáticos, desanimados, cansados, lentos, distraídos, preguiçosos, indispostos etc.; esse dado indica a possibilidade de o próprio professor atuar como autor do bullying. Os resultados da pesquisa evidenciam que mais estudos devem ser desenvolvidos a fim de buscar melhor compreensão do papel do professor diante da discriminação de alunos acima do peso, mais especificamente do bullying, de forma a permitir maior aprofundamento no desenvolvimento de ações que visem promover a diversidade cultural nas escolas.The purpose of this study was to investigate the perception of teachers in regard of the problems faced obese students in the school, as well as to associate such problems with the definition of bullying. Sixty-three teachers from the public schools in a city belonging to the

  2. [Professor Kazimierz Jaegermann--forensic pathologist--scientist--thinker].

    Nasiłowski, Władysław


    Professor Kazimierz Jaegermann, a founder of the theory of medico-legal opinionating, passed away 20 years ago. Numerous specialists in forensic medicine and an ever increasing number of lawyers substantiate the importance and value of the creative thought and the entire research work of Professor Jaegermann that have been an inspiration of progress in forensic medicine and in the science of applied law. His unique ability to perform a scientific synthesis leading to recognizing forensic medicine as an applied bridging knowledge points to the eminently creative role played by Professor Jaegermann in development of forensic medicine. There is an urgent need to recall his research activities and to publish a complete collection of his articles and publications. With this idea in mind, I present below an article based on the text published in No. 1 of the Zeszyty Naukowe Katedry Medycyny Sadowej Slaskiej Akademii Medycznej in 1995.

  3. [The essence of Professor Wu Lian-Zhong's acupuncture manipulation].

    Liu, Jing; Guo, Yi; Wu, Lian-Zhong


    The painless needle insertion technique, summarized by Professor WU Lian-zhong during his decades of acupuncture clinical practice is introduced in this article, which is characterized as soft, flexible, fast, plucking and activating antipathogenic qi. The Sancai (three layers) lifting and thrusting manipulation technique is adopted by Professor WU for getting the qi sensation. And features of 10 kinds of needling sensation such as soreness, numbness, heaviness, distension, pain, cold, hot, radiation, jumping and contracture are summarized. Finger force, amplitude, speed and time length are also taken as the basis of reinforcing and reducing manipulations. Moreover, examples are also given to explain the needling technique on some specific points which further embodies Professor WU's unique experiences and understandings on acupuncture.

  4. Categorization of Quantum Mechanics Problems by Professors and Students

    Lin, Shih-Yin


    We discuss the categorization of 20 quantum mechanics problems by physics professors and undergraduate students from two honors-level quantum mechanics courses. Professors and students were asked to categorize the problems based upon similarity of solution. We also had individual discussions with professors who categorized the problems. Faculty members' categorizations were overall rated higher than those of students by three faculty members who evaluated all of the categorizations. The categories created by faculty members were more diverse compared to the categories they created for a set of introductory mechanics problems. Some faculty members noted that the categorization of introductory physics problems often involves identifying fundamental principles relevant for the problem, whereas in upper-level undergraduate quantum mechanics problems, it mainly involves identifying concepts and procedures required to solve the problem. Moreover, physics faculty members who evaluated others' categorizations express...

  5. [Professor Frantisek Por MD and Professor Robert Klopstock MD, students at Budapest and Prague Faculties of Medicine].

    Mydlík, M; Derzsiová, K


    Professor Frantisek Por MD and Professor Robert Klopstock MD were contemporaries, both born in 1899, one in Zvolen, the other in Dombovar, at the time of Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. Prof. Por attended the Faculty of Medicine in Budapest from 1918 to 1920, and Prof. Klopstock studied at the same place between 1917 and 1919. From 1920 until graduation on 6th February 1926, Prof. Por continued his studies at the German Faculty of Medicine, Charles University in Prague. Prof. Klopstock had to interrupt his studies in Budapest due to pulmonary tuberculosis; he received treatment at Tatranske Matliare where he befriended Franz Kafka. Later, upon Kafka's encouragement, he changed institutions and continued his studies at the German Faculty of Medicine, Charles University in Prague, where he graduated the first great go. It is very likely that, during their studies in Budapest and Prague, both professors met repeatedly, even though their life paths later separated. Following his graduation, Prof. Por practiced as an internist in Prague, later in Slovakia, and from 1945 in Kosice. In 1961, he was awarded the title of university professor of internal medicine at the Faculty of Medicine, Pavol Jozef Safarik University in Kosice, where he practiced until his death in 1980. Prof. Klopstock continued his studies in Kiel and Berlin. After his graduation in 1933, he practiced in Berlin as a surgeon and in 1938 left for USA. In 1962, he was awarded the title of university professor of pulmonary surgery in NewYork, where he died in 1972.

  11. Professor of English, Linguistics, and Religion

    Dr. Sherrise Truesdale-Moore


    Full Text Available This article reexamines cultural curriculum and marginalized youth at-risk for gang involvement. While the literature expresses various approaches to addressing the gang problem in the United States, including comprehensive gang initiative models, get tough policies, and comprehensive peace campaigns to stop the violence. All of these initiatives have seemingly done little to stop gang membership among school age youth. Education has proven to be the most significant means to improve an individual’s life chances, but African American students, in particular, are performing worse than Whites on an average. If society is to reach these youth through education, we argue that a new classroom pedagogy is needed. To this aim, creating a culturally responsive classroom through hip hop may be the answer to engage troubled youth in the classroom.

  13. Promotion Rates for Assistant and Associate Professors in Obstetrics and Gynecology

    Rayburn, William F.; Schrader, Ronald M.; Fullilove, Anne M.; Rutledge, Teresa L.; Phelan, Sharon T.; Gener, Yolanda


    OBJECTIVE To estimate promotion rates of physician faculty members in obstetrics and gynecology during the past 30 years METHODS Data were collected annually by the Association of American Medical Colleges from every school between 1980 and 2009 for first-time assistant and associate professors to determine whether and when they were promoted. Data for full-time physician faculty were aggregated by decade (1980–1989, 1990–1999, 2000–2009). Faculty were included if they remained in academia for 10 years after beginning in rank. Data were analyzed by constructing estimated promotion curves and extracting 6-year and 10-year promotion rates. RESULTS The 10-year promotion rates (adjusted for attrition) declined significantly for assistant professors from 35% in 1980–89 to 32% in 1990–99 to 26% in 2000–09 (p obstetrics and gynecology had lower promotion probabilities than those in the subspecialties (OR = 0.16, p < 0.001). Female faculty on the non-tenure track had lower promotion rates than males in the non-tenure track, males in the tenure track, and females in the tenure track (ORs ≤ 0.8, p < 0.01). CONCLUSION A decline in promotion rates during the past 30 years may be attributable to changes in faculty composition. PMID:22525914

O estudo foi realizado em uma escola pública municipal situada na Ilha do Governador, baía de Guanabara, no estado do Rio de Janeiro, escolhida por localizar-se em zona com altos índices de violência. Utilizou-se as seguintes técnicas de coletas de dados: observação do cotidiano escolar; grupo focal com 12 professores que atuam em turmas de 6º a 9º anos, e entrevistas conversacionais com os mesmos professores. O cruzamento das análises permitiu localizar a possível metáfora do núcleo figurativo da representação social de bullying associado à adolescência: bullying é como se fosse uma moléstia que necessita remédio para ser curada. Entretanto, os professores nada podem fazer, uma vez que o Estatuto da Criança e do Adolescente e o Conselho Tutelar os impedem de tomar qualquer atitude ou desenvolver ações que possam acabar com o bullying na escola.

    Antônio dos Santos Andrade


    Full Text Available A partir das concepções de Donald Schön sobre a formação do professor como prático reflexivo, os princípios de trabalho com pequenos grupos, baseados nas concepções de J. L Moreno, foram utilizados com o objetivo de facilitar o processo de reflexão sobre suas práticas de sala de aula, com seis professores do Ensino Fundamental. Foram realizados nove encontros de 90 a 120 minutos de duração. Nas discussões, os casos dos alunos mais problemáticos quanto ao seu comportamento foram trazidos pelos professores e analisados pelo grupo a luz das concepções da Pragmática da Comunicação Humana. Como resultado destas discussões, os professores foram levados a considerar os aspectos mais latentes, e portanto significantes, de suas relações com os alunos. Estas reflexões conduziram a uma "resignificação" das mesmas, com efeitos surpreendentes sobre os comportamentos dos alunos.

  7. [Stefan Boleslaw Szuman (1889-1972), the Torun surgeon, psychologist and educator, the Jagiellonski University professor].

    Łysiak, Marian


    Professor Stefan Szuman was an outstanding offspring of dr med Leon Szuman, the Torun surgeon. He was born in Torun on 3.01.1889. Encouraged by his father he successfully graduated from medical school. Father's hopes that his private surgery clinic in Torun could be runned by his son were shattered when Stefan found a pretext for quitting surgery. It turned out that his real passion was psychology and education. Luckily, he survived the two world wars. In years 1948-1949, a 28 year old priest Karol Wojtyla listened to his lectures on characterology. It seems that among others, Stefan Szuman's views on human attitude towards death exerted a noticeable influence on the later Pope John Paul II.

  11. The life, achievements and legacy of a great Canadian investigator: Professor Boris Petrovich Babkin (1877–1950)

    Beck, Ivan T


    The present paper reviews the life and achievements of Professor Boris Petrovich Babkin (MD DSc LLD). History is only worth writing about if it teaches us about the future; therefore, this historical review concludes by describing what today’s and future gastrointestinal physiologists could learn from Dr Babkin’s life. Dr Babkin was born in Russia in 1877. He graduated with an MD degree from the Military Medical Academy in St Petersburg, Russia, in 1904. Not being attracted to clinical practice, and after some hesitation concerning whether he would continue in history or basic science of medicine, he entered the laboratory of Professor Ivan Petrovich Pavlov. Although he maintained an interest in history, in Pavlov’s exciting environment he became fully committed to physiology of the gastrointestinal system. He advanced quickly in Russia and was Professor of Physiology at the University of Odessa. In 1922, he was critical of the Bolshevik revolution, and after a short imprisonment, he was ordered to leave Russia. He was invited with his family by Professor EH Starling (the discoverer of secretin) to his department at University College, London, England. Two years later, he was offered a professorship in Canada at Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia. After contributing there for four years, he joined McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, in 1928 as Research Professor. He remained there for the rest of his career. Between 1940 and 1941, he chaired the Department, and following retirement, he remained as Research Professor. At the invitation of the world-famous neurosurgeon, Wilder Penfield, Dr Babkin continued as Research Fellow in the Department of Neurosurgery until his death in 1950 at age 73. His major achievements were related to establishing the concept of brain-gut-brain interaction and the influence of this on motility, as well as on interface of multiple different cells, nerves and hormones on secretory function. He had a major role in the

  1. PREFACE: Special section on Computational Fluid Dynamics—in memory of Professor Kunio Kuwahara Special section on Computational Fluid Dynamics—in memory of Professor Kunio Kuwahara

    Ishii, Katsuya


    This issue includes a special section on computational fluid dynamics (CFD) in memory of the late Professor Kunio Kuwahara, who passed away on 15 September 2008, at the age of 66. In this special section, five articles are included that are based on the lectures and discussions at `The 7th International Nobeyama Workshop on CFD: To the Memory of Professor Kuwahara' held in Tokyo on 23 and 24 September 2009. Professor Kuwahara started his research in fluid dynamics under Professor Imai at the University of Tokyo. His first paper was published in 1969 with the title 'Steady Viscous Flow within Circular Boundary', with Professor Imai. In this paper, he combined theoretical and numerical methods in fluid dynamics. Since that time, he made significant and seminal contributions to computational fluid dynamics. He undertook pioneering numerical studies on the vortex method in 1970s. From then to the early nineties, he developed numerical analyses on a variety of three-dimensional unsteady phenomena of incompressible and compressible fluid flows and/or complex fluid flows using his own supercomputers with academic and industrial co-workers and members of his private research institute, ICFD in Tokyo. In addition, a number of senior and young researchers of fluid mechanics around the world were invited to ICFD and the Nobeyama workshops, which were held near his villa, and they intensively discussed new frontier problems of fluid physics and fluid engineering at Professor Kuwahara's kind hospitality. At the memorial Nobeyama workshop held in 2009, 24 overseas speakers presented their papers, including the talks of Dr J P Boris (Naval Research Laboratory), Dr E S Oran (Naval Research Laboratory), Professor Z J Wang (Iowa State University), Dr M Meinke (RWTH Aachen), Professor K Ghia (University of Cincinnati), Professor U Ghia (University of Cincinnati), Professor F Hussain (University of Houston), Professor M Farge (École Normale Superieure), Professor J Y Yong (National

    Full Text Available O estudo constitui-se numa análise de seis equipes docentes que vivenciam seu primeiro encontro com TInE (Tecnologia da Informação na Escola. Este estudo em particular enfoca o desenvolvimento do conhecimento entre as equipes docentes. O objetivo é ilustrar o que aconteceu nas escolas pelo fato de as equipes docentes refletirem juntas sobre métodos de trabalho interdisciplinar baseados  em problemas centrados nos alunos, dos quais a TI (Tecnologia  da Informação constitui-se numa ferramenta pedagógica integrada. A maior parte dos dados foi coletada através de observação participante e entrevistas estruturadas com as equipes docentes e os alunos. O procedimento de análise foi inspirado pela análise contextual e resultou em quatro categorias das quais as características mais proeminentes são ressaltadas.  Mudança nos Métodos de Trabalho:  Os professores mostraram uma visão esmagadoramente positiva da TInE, porque foram proporcionadas oportunidades para experimentar novos métodos de trabalho, mesmo que estes não fossem necessariamente dependentes do uso de TI. Vários professores tinham pouca confiança em lidar com habilidades de TI. Eles também criticaram o fato de que a tecnologia nem sempre funcionou da maneira adequada.  Experiências de orientação e seminário: Os professores gostaram da orientação dentro de TInE e a impressão geral foi que os  mentores conseguiram apoiar adequadamente as equipes. Conversas com os monitores emanaram de problemas práticos vividos pelas equipes. No entanto, a maioria das equipes tinha dúvidas quanto à validade dos seminários, uma vez que o conteúdo ali oferecido era difuso.  O  aprendizado dos próprios professores: Os professores sentiram ter aprendido bastante de TInE.

  6. The University Professor View from the Communitarian Perspective

    Angela Del Valle López


    Full Text Available The task of the university professor is a mission and not simply a profession and that is why higher education should be impregnated with values. Nowadays education is articulated into three areas: the State, the Market and the Volunteering, but no one of these three sectors by themselves has covered the needs of all the citizens, there have always been losers, therefore the conjunction of the three sectors became necessary. Communitarianism promotes an ethical-social pact that favors the progress of society without nullifying the individual dimension. It believes that the university is the space where a communitarian consciousness should be promoted to generate a social capital by means of education and it is a privilege place to substantiate the moral identity of the person beginning with the commitment of the professor with the university student.

    Tan, Cheng; Zhang, Chang; Zhang, Jiajia; Wang, Jun


    For the treatment of primary dysmenorrhea, professor ZHAO Jiping focuses on meridian diagnosis and inspection, and uses pressing methods to locate the response points along the meridian, including acupoints and aishi points. During the stage of attack, it is essential to press along the spleen meridian, mainly Sanyinjiao (SP 6), Diji (SP 8) and Yinlingquan (SP 9); during the stage of remission, it is essential to press along the bladder meridian and stomach meridian, mainly Ganshu (BL 18), Pishu (BL 20), Weishu (BL 21), Shenshu (BL 23) and Zusanli (ST 36). The differences between deficiency syndrome and excess syndrome lead to the different feelings of doctors and patients. Combined with the results of meridian diagnosis and inspection, the aim of treatment can be achieved by different acupuncture methods. Professor ZHAO pays attention to the treatment of accompanied symptoms and timing of treatment, since the relief of accompanied syndromes and selection of timing are keys to relieving patient's pain.

  14. Professor Created On-line Biology Laboratory Course

    Bowman, Arthur W.


    This paper will share the creation, implementation, and modification of an online college level general biology laboratory course offered for non-science majors as a part of a General Education Curriculum. The ability of professors to develop quality online laboratories will address a growing need in Higher Education as more institutions combine course sections and look for suitable alternative course delivery formats due to declining departmental budgets requiring reductions in staffing, equipment, and supplies. Also, there is an equal or greater need for more professors to develop the ability to create online laboratory experiences because many of the currently available online laboratory course packages from publishers do not always adequately parallel on-campus laboratory courses, or are not as aligned with the companion lecture sections. From a variety of scientific simulation and animation web sites, professors can easily identify material that closely fit the specific needs of their courses, instructional environment, and students that they serve. All too often, on-campus laboratory courses in the sciences provide what are termed confirmation experiences that do NOT allow students to experience science as would be carried out by scientists. Creatively developed online laboratory experiences can often provide the type of authentic investigative experiences that are not possible on-campus due to the time constraints of a typical two-hour, once-per-week-meeting laboratory course. In addition, online laboratory courses can address issues related to the need for students to more easily complete missing laboratory assignments, and to have opportunities to extend introductory exercises into more advanced undertakings where a greater sense of scientific discovery can be experienced. Professors are strongly encourages to begin creating online laboratory exercises for their courses, and to consider issues regarding assessment, copyrights, and Intellectual Property

Results: Deficiencies in the development of educational competences were found, negatively influencing educational quality, mainly in the understanding of teaching objectives, and in teaching methods leading to an inappropriate pedagogical investigation. Conclusions: Deficiencies in the development of educational competences have an impact on the quality of the future professional. This study is a viable alternative to improve Stomatology professionals in our National Health System. 

  3. Docência na universidade: professores inovadores na USP

    Chamlian Helena Coharik


    Full Text Available O artigo trata de pesquisa realizada com um grupo de professores inovadores da Universidade de São Paulo tendo como objetivo procurar subsídios para a formação do professor universitário. Esses docentes foram entrevistados, solicitando que detalhassem melhor suas experiências inovadoras; explicassem as razões pelas quais haviam introduzido modificações em sua forma de trabalho; explicitassem as relações entre sua atividade de docência e de pesquisa, expressassem o papel que atribuíam ao ensino na universidade, bem como a forma pela qual sua trajetória acadêmica havia se cumprido até então. A diversidade de experiências relatadas e, ao mesmo tempo, a convergência de visões a respeito de suas funções de ensino e de pesquisa na universidade permitem-nos afirmar que, mais do que uma formação pedagógica específica, a sensibilização para as dificuldades do ensino e a valorização institucional dessa atividade consistiriam em grande avanço para a formação do professor.

  4. [The tutor-professor, transformer of professional practice].

    Bardallo Porras, Lola; March i Vila, Gemma


    The emerging conceptualization of the teaching-learning process brings with it a modification in the teaching role of a university professor. To think of the function of a tutor-professor from a complex perspective will help professors to develop underneath this paradigm, facilitating the construction of thinking in integrated networks having different types of knowledge which substitute fragmented and lineal knowledge characteristic to positivist thinking. From a complex paradigm, learning acquires a new sense. The complex viewpoint is rich in matrixes, complacent with diversity capable to integrate difficulties. The final objective of teaching is to accompany a student as he/she discovers and interprets reality. The most important function of a tutor is to permit a student to construct himself/herself by means of reflexive dialogue with the student's own learning experience. The tutor's role should enable a student to make use of his/her own speech, offering secure places where a student can find his/her appropriate spot, and where the pressure of an exam becomes more a stimulus to learn than a difficulty for his/her development.

    Full Text Available Este trabalho apresenta os resultados de um survey interseccional realizado com 104 professores de piano atuantes de Porto Alegre. Com relação à formação, cerca de 60% dos professores pesquisados possuem uma formação acadêmica na área de Música e menos da metade cursou o Bacharelado em Piano. A maioria dos professores considera ter aprendido a ensinar na prática e um terço da amostra alega seguir o modelo de seus professores. Quanto à atuação, os locais mais destacados são: a própria casa, seguido da escola de música e da casa do aluno. Os resultados revelaram que os professores investigados parecem aproximar-se dos modelos de professor improvisado, professor artesão e professor como profissional (RAMALHO, NUÑEZ e GAUTHIER, 2004.This paper presents the results of a cross-sectional survey conducted with 104 piano teachers in Porto Alegre (Brazil. Concerning the professional training, about 60% of the interviewed teachers possessed an academic degree in Music, and less than half of them were Piano undergraduates. Most of the teachers considered that they have learned how to teach within their daily practice and one third followed the model provided by their previous piano teachers. Regarding their professional practice profile, most of the participants teach at home, followed by those who work in music schools or at the student’s home. The results revealed that the investigated teachers could be described according to what RAMALHO, NUÑEZ & GAUTHIER (2004 named as improvised, artisan and professional teacher models.

    Full Text Available RESUMO: Este artigo apresenta um estudo sobre os processos e trajetórias dos livros escolares, em meados do século XIX, nas escolas da Corte, procurando por meio da análise deste percurso, compreender as tensões e disputas sobre as escolhas dos livros e a participação dos professores públicos primários. Procuro analisar as condições de aparecimento e de permanência do livro na ordem escolar no Brasil, me detendo no exame das regras que presidiam o seu funcionamento de modo a refletir, na perspectiva da história, acerca das ações de escolarização e da emergência do livro escolar, que indo além dos regulamentos e premissas do Estado, contou com a intervenção de professores, nesse caso, participando, propondo e, queixando-se acerca de tais objetos. Assim sendo, almejo analisar a trajetória de adoção do livro escolar, segundo os pressupostos oficiais, recuperando também as intervenções dos professores em um processo entre as práticas e as tensões. Para o desenvolvimento de tal proposta, utilizo como fontes à lei de 1854 que regeu a instrução primária e secundária do Município da Corte e que regulamentou a utilização dos livros nas escolas no período estudado, de 1854 a 1877, as atas da Inspetoria Geral da Instrução Primária e Secundária da Corte, a correspondência entre professores e o conselho diretor da Inspetoria Geral da Instrução Primária e Secundária da Corte, e a versão impressa do Manifesto dos Professores publicada em 1871 pela Typografia J.

  11. Os professores e seus mecanismos de fuga e enfrentamento Teachers and their escape and coping mechanisms

    Gideon Borges dos Santos


    Full Text Available A partir de exemplos concretos reunidos ao longo de dois anos de estudo sobre a saúde docente, este artigo propõe uma discussão sobre as estratégias que professores constroem para enfrentar as adversidades do cotidiano escolar. Com a utilização dos conceitos de saúde e da psicodinâmica do trabalho, busca-se refletir de que modo os docentes enfrentam adversidades como a não aprendizagem, o comportamento indisciplinado dos alunos, a falta de material didático-pedagógico e o cansaço ou a indisposição para ministrar as aulas. Essas estratégias - denominadas de enfrentamento e de fuga - que seriam, aparentemente, promotoras de aprendizagens, também são atividades que reduzem o desgaste dos professores, o que leva à banalização do processo educacional.Taken from concrete examples gathered over two years of study on the health of teachers, this article proposes a discussion about the strategies that teachers create to face the adversities of everyday school life. With the use of concepts of health and psychodynamics of work, we try to reflect on how teachers deal with adversities such as learning difficulties, the undisciplined behavior of students, the lack of teaching resources, and the teachers fatigue or unwillingness to teach the classes. These strategies - known as coping and escape strategies - which would apparently enhance learning, are also activities that reduce the teacher's burnout, which leads to the trivialization of the educational process.

  12. Professores: entre saberes e práticas Teachers: between knowledge and practices



    Full Text Available A relação dos professores com os saberes que ensinam, constituinte essencial da atividade docente e fundamental para a configuração da identidade profissional, tem merecido pouca atenção de pesquisadores em educação. O objetivo deste artigo é discutir as possibilidades teóricas provenientes da articulação das categorias de análise "saber docente" e "conhecimento escolar" para a pesquisa das relações dos professores com os saberes que ensinam, categorias essas que levam em conta a especificidade da ação educativa e contribuem para o desenvolvimento de uma epistemologia da prática docente, distinta daquela que fundamenta o conhecimento científico, possibilitando a realização de pesquisas que possam efetivamente enfrentar os desafios apresentados com instrumental teórico apropriado.Teacher's relations with the contents they teach, essential constituents of teaching activity and fundamental for the formation of professional identity, have not yet been paid the attention they deserve by researchers. This article aims to discuss the theoretical possibilities provided by the combination of the categories "teacher's knowledge" and "school knowledge" while researching teacher's relations with the contents they teach. Implicit in these categories is the understanding of the specificity of educational activity which helps the development of an epistemology of teaching practice, different from that inherent to scientific knowledge, allowing the development of research on teaching provided with the appropriate theoretical instruments to face the emergent challenges.

  13. Maintenance of Clinical Expertise and Clinical Research by the Clinical Professors at Gifu Pharmaceutical University.

    Tachi, Tomoya; Noguchi, Yoshihiro; Teramachi, Hitomi


     The clinical professors at Gifu Pharmaceutical University (GPU) provide pharmaceutical services at GPU Pharmacy, Gifu University Hospital, and Gifu Municipal Hospital to keep their clinical skills up-to-date; they also perform clinical research in collaboration with many clinical institutes. The Laboratory of Clinical Pharmacy is part of the Department of Pharmacy Practice and Science, to which the clinical professors belong, and is composed of three clinical professors (a professor, an associate professor, and an assistant professor). The professor administers the GPU Pharmacy as its director, while the associate professor and assistant professor provide pharmaceutical services to patients at Gifu Municipal Hospital, and also provide practical training for students in the GPU Pharmacy. Collectively, they have performed research on such topics as medication education for students, clinical communication education, and analysis of clinical big data. They have also conducted research in collaboration with clinical institutes, hospitals, and pharmacies. Here, we introduce the collaborative research between the Laboratory of Clinical Pharmacy and Gifu Municipal Hospital. These studies include "Risk factors contributing to urinary protein expression resulting from bevacizumab combination chemotherapy", "Hyponatremia and hypokalemia as risk factors for falls", "Economic evaluation of adjustments of levofloxacin dosage by dispensing pharmacists for patients with renal dysfunction", and "Effect of patient education upon discharge for use of a medication notebook on purchasing over-the-counter drugs and health foods". In this symposium, we would like to demonstrate one model of the association and collaborative research between these clinical professors and clinical institutes.

  14. Translation and Creative Writing: An Interview with Professor Margaret Rogers

    Ruzbeh Babaee


    Full Text Available Introduction This interview was conducted with Emerita Professor Margaret Rogers with the aim of providing a brief but informative summary of the relationship between translation and creative writing. Emerita Professor Rogers is in the Centre for Translation Studies, School of English and Languages, University of Surrey, UK. She is also the founder of Terminology Network at the Institute of Translation and Interpreting in the UK. Professor Rogers introduced creative writing into the translation curriculum some 10 years ago at her own university.   The Interview   RB[1]: Do you believe in a theory of translation? MR[2]: There are many ways of trying to understand and, where we can, explain translation in all its guises, loci and times. To talk about ‘a theory’ in this context doesn’t help much. There are many different approaches to the academic study of translation: rather simply put, the particular approach which we choose to adopt may depend on our object of study (e.g. literary translation or specialised translation, what we want to find out about this (e.g. are we interested in product or process, in a historical or contemporary perspective, what resources we have available (e.g. a fully funded research team or a solo effort and so on. Many projects are interdisciplinary—this has long been recognised—and translation scholars are becoming much more resourceful in identifying, adopting and adapting relevant approaches from intersecting disciplines such as comparative literature, cultural studies, history, linguistics, philosophy, psychology and sociology. Some scholars are now advocating a problem-based approach. In any research project it is important to establish how the problem/phenomenon/issue which has been identified as the focus of the study can be tackled. For this, in an empirical study a method is crucial: in translation studies this is rarely something that can be picked off the shelf and is often a contribution to the

  15. EDITORIAL: 65th Birthday of Professor Hauptmann 65th Birthday of Professor Hauptmann

    Lucklum, Ralf


    The papers in this special feature have been contributed by scientific partners in international research projects and from former PhD students of the Editor-in-Chief of this journal, Professor Dr Peter Hauptmann. The motivation for this feature is the occasion of Peter Hauptmann's 65th birthday on 24 July 2009 and his retirement from his chair at the Otto-von-Guericke-University, Magdeburg, Germany this autumn. Peter graduated in Physics at the Technical University Dresden and received his PhD from the Technical University Leuna-Merseburg in 1973. He habilitated in 1979. With his appointment at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology in 1985 the Chair of Measurement Science extended its profile to the fast growing area of sensors. Peter was one of the very early developers of ultrasonic sensor systems for process monitoring and quality assurance. The working style here was characteristic of all his future activities. He combined his background in theory and experiment on ultrasonic wave propagation and its application to material science with the advantages of rapidly developing capabilities in microelectronics and data processing. The results have meanwhile found their way into products that are now on the market worldwide. Germany's reunification opened the door to the international sensor community and the most challenging sensor research areas. Peter Hauptmann very soon became a well respected colleague and was consequently appointed as member of the Technical Program Committee of the most important sensor conferences, elected member and head of expert groups of research associations and funding organizations, and of course reviewer of many scientific journals. Nowadays Peter Hauptmann can rightly be called one of the key players in the area of sensors. Professor Hauptmann's research interests combine fundamental aspects of the sensor transduction scheme with application issues up to the use of the sensor system in the industrial world

After completing studies at the Ecole Principale du Service de Santé de la Marine et des Colonies in Bordeaux, and at the Ecole d'Application du Service de Santé des Troupes Coloniales in Marseille, he was deployed to Indochina where he served as physician first at the Poulo Condor penitentiary from (1929 to 1930) and then in Cambodia from (1931 to 32). In 1933, he returned to Paris where he followed lectures on Microbiology at the Institut Pasteur, in Paris. He was then assigned to the Institut Pasteur in Madagascar from 1931 to 1932. From 1939 to 1944, he was Head of the General Hospital in Brazzaville, Congo and Director of the Medical School in French Equatorial Africa. He retired from the army in 1946. From 1949 to 1972, he held an academic position as Professor of Bacteriology at the Bordeaux School of Medicine.

  17. Visões de ciências de professores de química: a mídia e as reflexões no ambiente escolar no nível médio de ensino Science insight´s of chemistry teachers: media and reflection on high school environment

    Nyuara Araújo da Silva Mesquita


    Full Text Available The present paper discusses the influence of TV and general media on students scientific ideas and the teacher's perception of this influence on students during class time. 17 high-school chemistry teachers with teaching degree, working in state schools, were interviewed. The interviews showed that both, teachers and students, have a positive opinion of science and the scientist. According to their teachers, students' positive view of science is greatly influenced by TV. The developed study shows how important epistemology is in teachers' college formation to offer them a critical perception of science treated in general media.

  18. [Needling technique of Professor Li Yan-Fang].

    Li, Li-Jun


    Experiences of needling techniques of Professor LI Ya- fang is introduced in this article. Gentle and superficial insertion is adopted by Professor LI in clinic. Emphases are put on the qi regulation function, needling sensation to the affected region and insertion with both hands, especially the function of the left hand as pressing hand. The gentle and superficial insertion should be done as the follows: hold the needle with the right hand, press gently along the running course of meridians with the left hand to promote qi circulation, hard pressing should be applied at acupoints to disperse the local qi and blood, insert the needle gently and quickly into the subcutaneous region with the right hand, and stop the insertion when patient has the needling sensation. While the fast needling is characterized with shallow insertion and swift manipulation: the left hand of the manipulator should press first along the running course of the meridian, and fix the local skin, hold the needle with the right hand and insert the needle quickly into the acupoint. Withdrawal of the needle should be done immediately after the reinforcing and reducing manipulations. Professor LI is accomplished in qi regulation. It is held by him that regulating qi circulation is essence of acupuncture, letting the patient get the needling sensation is the most important task of needling. Lifting, thrusting and rotation manipulations should be applied to do reinforcing or reducing. The tissue around the tip of the needle should not be too contracted or too relaxed, and the resistance should not be too strong or too weak. The feeling of the insertion hand of the practitioner should not be too smooth or too hesitant. Needle should be inserted into the skin quickly at the moment of hard pressing by the left hand. And then, slow rotation and gentle lifting and thrusting can be applied to promote the needling sensation like electric current pass through and to reach the affected region along the

  20. Where are the female science professors? A personal perspective

    Kamerlin, Shina Caroline Lynn


    The first woman to earn a Professorship at a University in Europe was Laura Maria Caterina Bassi, who earned a professorship in physics at the University of Bologna in 1732. Almost 300 years and three waves of feminism later, in 2016, women typically still only comprise 20% (or less) of the number of full professors in Europe. This opinion article will discuss the experiences of being a female academic today and the factors contributing to the academic gender gap from the perspective of a “young” natural scientist, as well as providing constructive suggestions for strategies to empower women in the academic world.

  1. Tuning Geneva+Pythia 8 Using Professor 2

    Gellersen, Leif Erik


    We study the tuning of the Geneva Monte Carlo framework to LHC data. Geneva improves the predictions for Drell-Yan production by including NNLO QCD corrections and extending the resummation accuracy to NNLL$'$ for 0-jettiness and NLL for 1-jettiness. The partonic results provided by Geneva are interfaced to Pythia 8 for showering including its multiple parton interaction (MPI) model. This allows us to obtain sensible predictions for Underlying Event (UE) sensitive observables too. Retuning Geneva + Pythia 8 to LHC data with the Professor 2 package shows an improved agreement for both UE sensitive and more inclusive observables.

  8. 'Pinning and flux dynamics I' in the memory of Professor John Clem

    Weber, Harald W.


    The local Organizing Committee and the International Advisory Committee of EUCAS 2013 decided to dedicate the Session 'Pinning and Flux Dynamics I' to the memory of Professor John Clem, who passed away on 2 August 2013. Let me briefly summarize John's career and try to convey the incredible loss for the whole superconductor community. John was born in 1938 in Waukegan, a small town in Illinois. After school he obtained several scholarships at the University of Illinois. There he received a BSc in Engineering Physics in 1960, followed by an MSc in Physics in 1962, and earned a PhD focusing on the theory of superconductivity under John Bardeen in 1965. After two years of postdoctoral positions at the University of Maryland and the Technical University of Munich, he joined the Physics Department of the Iowa State University and the Ames Laboratory in 1967, where he spent the rest of his scientific career. He became Full Professor at ISU and Senior Physicist at the Ames Lab in 1975 and was Chairman of the Physics Department from 1982 to 1985. He spent several sabbaticals in the US at IBM Yorktown Heights, Stanford and EPRI in Palo Alto, was named 'Distinguished Professor' at ISU, was a Fellow of the American Physical Society and the Institute of Physics in London and, at the ASC 2012 in Portland he received the IEEE Award for 'Continuing and Significant Contributions in the Field of Applied Superconductivity', especially for his theoretical insight into the nature of vortices in 2D superconductors, which he called 'pancake vortices'. John, who married his high school sweetheart Judy right after college graduation, immediately turned Ames into a much-visited center for scientists from all over the world (including myself), who were interested in vortex physics and the properties of the flux line lattice, flux pinning, flux cutting and vortex dynamics. But it was not only the science at ISU that attracted us, it was also the warm atmosphere created by John and Judy at

  9. A Formação Inicial e Continuada dos Professores de Química: Uma Análise do Quadro Docente de Barreiras – Bahia

    Marcelo Ribeiro dos Santos


    Full Text Available This paper analyzes the initial and continued formation the teaching staff of chemistry in High School of the public network of Barreiras-BA, for to know the yours main training needs. By questionnaires applied in the twelve state schools was possible to get necessary information for to trace the profile these professionals of basic education. The data analysis showed the training needs these professors and that they are related, mainly, to absence of didactic and pedagogical formation in their initial formation and also the deficiency of specific knowledge generated by an inadequate formation for the teaching function in the chemistry teaching. The results show yet that more than half these professors do not have graduation degree complete and they are not permanent teaching staff, showing the need of professionals in this area. Discussions about continued formation show that most chemistry professors do not has interest to make improvement and/or specialization for chemistry teaching, factor that favors the devaluation of the teacher in the society and shows to simple vision about chemistry teaching.  DOI:

    Full Text Available Conceiving the importance of teacher training for the construction and reconstruction of practices and behaviors of teachers, the article investigates the reverberations of such training in the practice of teaching educators working in a public school in Fortaleza, Brazil. Are highlighted, in this regard, the impact on the construction of subjectivity and teacher identity and mental health of these professionals. Therefore, an empirical research was made, which included the observation of the environment of the school and teaching, was conducted a questionnaire administered to teachers and feedback session held with the school board. Twenty-six teachers participated of the search, beyond the core manager, consisting of three professionals. The results indicate, paradoxically, on the one hand, the satisfaction of teachers with their practice and the school, and on the other, worrying levels of teaching and psychological suffering malaise. The relationship with students is evidenced as an element that produces more stress in the research participants professionals. These issues are closely related to the configuration of teacher education, which is not dear to work subjectivity and teacher identity, has not corroborated the formation of critical practices that take into account the heterogeneity in the classroom, and collaborate with the production of an alienated professional profile. These factors confirm, then, for the establishment of teacher malaise. The research was funded by the National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq.

  12. Professor Dorothy A.E. Garrod: "Small, Dark, and Alive!"

    Pamela Jane Smith


    Full Text Available In 1939, Dorothy Garrod became the first woman Professor in either Cambridge or Oxford. Garrod at the time was Director of Studies at Newnham College, Cambridge University and had been in charge of excava­tions in Gibraltar, Western Judaea, Southern Kurdistan and Mount Carmel for which she is now renowned. Trained by Marett at Oxford and Abbe Henri Breuil in France, she was one of our finest archaeologists. By 1939, Garrod had unearthed the well-preserved skull of 'Abel', a Neanderthal child, in Gibraltar, discovered and named the Natufian culture while excavating Shukba near Jerusalem, directed the long term, large scale excavations at Mount Carmel and traveled with Bruce Howe as her assistant to explore Bacho Kiro in Bulgaria. Once elected Professor, she became instrumental in establishing Archaeology and Anthropology as a full degree course and influential in Cambridge's decision to admit women to full membership in 1948. After retirement, she continued excavating in Lebanon and France. Here, with her close friend Suzanen Cassou de Saint Mathurin, she discovered the superb Magdalenian sculptured frieze at Angles-sur-l'Anglin.

  13. O papel do professor junto ao aluno com Altas Habilidades

  15. [Influence of Professor Konstanty Janicki's discoveries on progress in protistology].

    Kazubski, Stanisław L


    Professor Konstanty Janicki published 11 protozoological papers. They concern the flagellate parasites of cockroaches and termites, as well as the amebas parasitising cockroaches and chaetognaths. He described the morphology and cytology of 12 species of flagellates, including 4 new species and genera. Three new species parasitising termites belong to the Parabasalia, one--Oxymonas granulosa, without the Golgi apparatus, initiated a new group of protista, the Oxymonadida Grassé, 1952. Konstanty Janicki also examined some important questions dealing with protozoology such as: (1) Karyomastigont. Janicki analysed the connection of the cell nucleus to the mastigont system in flagellates from termites and cockroaches. Also he described the replication of karyomastigonts of some species. This organelle plays an important part in the discussions on evolution of the lower Protista. (2) Parabasal apparatus. Janicki described the parabasal body in flagellates from cockroaches and termites, paying special attention to its peculiarities. This organelle was later named: "Janicki-type parabasal apparatus" and together with pleuromitosis became the main characters of an independent group of protista--Parabasalia. (3) Parasome. Konstanty Janicki also studied the enigmatic body (parasome, Nebenkörper), near the cell nucleus and staining like it, in amebas from the genus Paramoeba. He described this body dividing. After TEM investigation of Janickina (=Paramoeba) pigmentifera, this body is presently recognized as an endosymbiotic flagellate. Summing up, it may be stated that all findings of Professor Konstanty Janicki were the object of further investigations and occupy an important place in protistology.

  16. The Gresham Professors of Astronomy 1597-2013

    Shrimplin, V.


    Gresham College is named after Sir Thomas Gresham (1519-1579), an English merchant and financier who worked for the four key Tudor monarchs, Henry VIII, Edward VI, Mary I, and Elizabeth I. He studied at Cambridge before going to Antwerp where he was a merchant as well as the financial agent of the crown—negotiating loans, and procuring funds and goods. Gresham also acted as ambassador and was well rewarded with a salary, lands, and a knighthood in 1559, becoming one of the richest men in England. Sadly, Sir Thomas's only son and legitimate heir died in 1564. As a result he left his vast fortune to the Corporation of London and the Mercers' Company for the purpose of founding a College in London. Seven professors were to be appointed to read lectures daily—in various subjects including astronomy. The first Gresham professor of astronomy (predating chairs in astronomy at Oxford and Cambridge) was appointed in 1597 and a continuous line of professors—and their lectures—has taken place ever since, up to the present day when lectures are both free and open to the public in London as well as being recorded and available globally via the internet.

  17. The art of science: interview with Professor John Archibald Wheeler

    Bičák, Jiři


    During the conference on the methods of differential geometry in physics in Warsaw in June 1976, Professor Wheeler gave an interview for the Czechoslovak Journal of Physics A. After Professor Wheeler authorized the English version in January 1977, the Czech translation was published in \\v{C}eskoslovensk\\'y \\v{c}asopis pro fyziku A (1978) and soon afterwards the Polish translation appeared in Postepy fizyky. After John Wheeler's recent death it occurred to me that it would now be appropriate to publish the original interview from 1976 so that it would not be lost to English readers; and so, despite being more than 30 years old, the interview appeared in the special issue on quantum gravity of "General Relativity and Gravitation" dedicated to the memory of J. A. Wheeler. John Wheeler would now surely add more about black holes in nuclei of galaxies, not mentioning just Cygnus X-1, when discussing cosmology he would undoubtedly address the problem of dark energy etc. However, in the conversation about Einstein a...

Dr. Reis will then describe a powerful preparation strategy to make graduate students and postdocs competitive for academic positions while maintaining their options for worthwhile careers in government and industry. He will then explain how to get the offer you want and the start-up package you need to ensure success in your first critical years on the job. Finally, Dr. Reis will summarize essential insights from experienced faculty in all areas of science and engineering on how to develop a rewarding academic career and a quality of life that is both balanced and fulfilling. Plenty of time will be set aside for active interaction and discussion.

  20. Homage to Professor Hans-Åke Gustafsson


    It was with deep sadness that we learned of the death of Professor Hans-Åke Gustafsson, an internationally recognized scientist, beloved colleague and friend. He passed away on Wednesday January 13th at the Lund University Hospital, surrounded by his loved ones, after a short battle against cancer. This is a great loss for all of us in ALICE and the whole heavy ion community. Hans-Åke, Professor at Lund University, was one of the pioneers of heavy ion physics with relativistic beams since its very beginning. He started his research at CERN, as a fellow at the ISOLDE ion beam facility, and immediately after, in the early 1980 joined the Plastic Ball collaboration at the Bevalac. One of the seminal papers of the field on the discovery of collective flow in relativistic nuclear collisions, co-authored by Hans-Åke, Hans Gutbrod and colleagues, stems from this period. From that point on he was always at the forefront of research with relativistic nuclear beams, being for three de...

  2. Professores homossexuais: suas vivências frente à comunidade escolar

    Luana Molina


    Full Text Available Este trabalho tem como objetivo apresentar uma discussão referente à problemática da vivência diária do professor/professora homossexual frente à instituição escolar, cujo pressuposto inicial parte da premissa que estes professores sofreram e vem sofrendo, algum tipo de preconceito devido sua orientação sexual. No desenvolvimento, partimos para uma abordagem qualitativa e fundamentando-se na análise de discurso, ou seja, conhecendo as experiências de professores e professoras por meio de suas narrativas. Para isso foram entrevistados dois professores gays e uma professora lésbica, todos com ensino superior, que atuam ou atuaram no Ensino Fundamental II e no Ensino Médio. Nossa estratégia metodológica acontece em duas situações: A primeira, por meio de um questionário prévio composto de dez questões de identificação pessoal no intuito de traçar um perfil dos entrevistados. No segundo momento, entrevistas semi – estruturadas, com perguntas que focaram mais especificamente a percepção dos professores/professoras sobre a homofobia na escola. Nosso resultado é composto por relatos onde pudemos identificar a escola como um ambiente que reflete o sexismo que perpassa toda a sociedade, reproduzindo com frequência, as estruturas sociais, reforçando os preconceitos e privilégios de um sexo sobre o outro. Desta forma, percebemos que o heterossexismo está tão arraigado na cultura, que se torna invisível em muitas de suas atitudes quase sutis, como por exemplo, em brincadeiras e piadas. O universo escolar reproduz os preconceitos da sociedade e, na tentativa de evitar o convívio dos alunos heterossexuais, com pessoas homossexuais, faz da homossexualidade o maior alvo da discriminação. Concluímos, portanto, que as desigualdades entre os sexos e a marginalização dos homossexuais acabam gerando vítimas de uma sociedade inacabada, de repressão, opressão e desinformação. Por fim, está sociedade esta em constante

    Full Text Available The purpose of this study was: 1 to identify the physical activity habits in daily life of the professors at the Physical Education Department of UNIMONTES; 2 to verify the lifestyles of these individuals in terms of five well-being-related items (nutrition, physical activity, preventative behavior, social relationships, and stress control. Twenty Physical Education professors (5 women and 15 men, 27 to 53 years of age were evaluated. Three instruments were employed to obtain the required information: 1 PAR-Q, 2 Physical Activity Survey, and 3 Life Style Profi le using the Well Being Pentagram. It was verifi ed that 74% of the males were apparently fi t enough to initiate a physical exercise program. On the other hand, this number decreased to 40% in the female group. Concerning the physical activity questionnaire, 75% of the male group were active or very active, and only 40% of the female group were active. Regarding the lifestyle profi les (Well Being Pentagram, females did not report desirable healthy behavior, since their mean score was 1.4 points. In the male group, the mean score was 2.0 points, which indicates a healthy lifestyle, as well as an attitude more favorable to preventative health. We concluded that women require more attention than men, relating to the aspects mentioned above, and that men should not forget to keep on having healthy habits.

  6. Eficácia coletiva dos professores e implicações para o contexto educacional brasileiro/Teacher’s collective efficacy and implications for brazilian’ education

    José Aloyseo Bzuneck,


    Full Text Available O artigo apresenta o estado da arte acerca da eficácia coletiva de professores. Esse conceito deriva da teoria social cognitiva de Bandura, que considera as crenças de eficácia como as bases da agência humana, assim como descreve quatro fontes que sustentam seu desenvolvimento. As percepções de eficácia coletiva são definidas como os julgamentos dos professores de uma escola de que o seu conjunto dos professores é capaz de organizar e executar os cursos de ação exigidos para se conseguirem resultados positivos junto aos alunos. São relatados os modos pelos quais se pode mensurar esse constructo bem como as pesquisas sobre suas relações com desempenho dos alunos e com a autoeficácia individual dos professores. Por último, é mostrado como o desenvolvimento de eficácia coletiva tem um papel relevante, consideradas as condições do momento atual da escola brasileira. This paper presents the state of the art about teachers’ collective efficacy. This concept derives from Bandura’s Social Cognitive Theory, who considers efficacy beliefs as the basis of human agency and describes four sources that support its development. Teachers’ perceptions of collective efficacy are their judgments that the faculty as a whole can organize and execute the courses of action in the school required to have a positive effect on students. The article outlines the ways how to measure this construct and describes research results about its relationship to students’ achievement and teachers’ individual self efficacy. Last, the relevance of this construct is discussed especially in the face of the present moment of Brazilian school.

    Full Text Available O objetivo do presente estudo, parte de Dissertação de Mestrado em Educação, foi analisar representações que professores surdos de Língua de Sinais têm em relação aos objetivos, àimportância e às dificuldades do próprio ensino de LIBRAS. O suporte teórico veio dos Estudos Culturais e dos Estudos Surdos. Foram entrevistados 10 professores surdos de escolas do Rio Grande do Sul, sendo suas entrevistas realizadas em LIBRAS e gravadas em vídeo. As perguntas das entrevistas foram: qual a função do ensino de Língua de Sinais; se os professores viam relação entre este ensino e o empoderamento dos alunos; o que professores de outras disciplinas achavam dos professores dessa disciplina (LS; qual a relação entre identidade surda e currículo de língua de sinais. A análise das entrevistas mostrou que os professores reconhecem a importância deste ensino e sua relevância para as identidades surdas, mas relataram dificuldades como: insuficiente participação dos alunos na comunidade surda; isolamento dos professores surdos em algumas escolas, sem terem com quem trocar idéias; discriminação em relação aos professores de LIBRAS; insegurança de alguns professores sobre o currículo trabalhado. A análise mostrou aspectos positivos, mas também mostrou que ainda há muito o que fazer no ensino escolarizado de LIBRAS.Abstract The aim of the present study, part of a master’s dissertation in Education, was to analyse what Sign Language teachers represent for the aims, importance and difficulties in teaching Libras.

  15. [Teaching evaluation at Medical School, UNAM].

    Salas-Gómez, Luz Elena; Ortiz-Montalvo, Armando; Alaminos-Sager, Isabel Luisa


    The purpose of this article is to offer a synthesis of what has been done in the Teaching Evaluation Program at the Medical School of the Autonomous National University of Mexico (UNAM). The Program involves three questionnaires of the students' opinion that evaluate professors of the basic and sociomedical areas, microbiology and parasitology laboratory and surgery. Between 1994 and 2003, 134,811 questionnaires were answered to evaluate the teaching performance of 6262 professors of pregraduate students. Although the evaluation of teaching through a single way is insufficient, the results obtained allow us to affirm that the Medical School at UNAM has a good professor staff, as well as they are useful for the design of programs dedicated to the acknowledgment of excellence and the needs for teaching education.

    Sueli Édi Rufini Guimarães

    Full Text Available O objetivo deste estudo foi submeter à análise fatorial exploratória um instrumento de avaliação de estilos motivacionais de professores, elaborado por Deci e colaboradores, denominado Problems in School. O teste original, na forma de escala Likert, considerava a existência de um continuum com quatro diferentes estilos que contribuem para a promoção da autonomia dos estudantes. Traduzido para o português, o teste foi aplicado a 582 professores do ensino fundamental e médio de diversas regiões do Brasil. Embora os resultados da análise fatorial tenham revelado uma solução de quatro fatores ortogonalmente distintos, a suposição inicial dos autores (existência do continuum não foi confirmada. De fato, apenas dois estilos opostos (altamente promotores de autonomia e de controle corresponderam à proposta original de Deci et al. Surgiram problemas em relação à validade dos demais estilos. Os resultados foram discutidos e uma versão revisada da escala foi desenvolvida. São também sugeridas direções para futuras pesquisas.
