SEDIS promotes an adaptation course for new EaD / UFRN students
7 de May de 2021
The Quilombola Coati Community is located in the Lagoa do Mato District, in the rural area of Luís Gomes, in the Alto Oeste Potiguar Region, about 440 kilometers from Natal. From there, comes one of several examples of social inclusion provided by Distance Education. At the age of 21, Maria Eduarda da Silva celebrates approval in the Distance Education Pedagogy Course by the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte (UFRN).
With the help of the internet, we talked to her to find out what her expectations for academic life are: “it will be something new and challenging for me, I always wanted to go to college, but I didn’t imagine it would be the distance, I’m very happy” . According to Maria Eduarda, “Pedagogy forms a multidisciplinary professional, capable of acting in the teaching and learning processes, to teach children, young people and adults to read and write”. According to her, these teachings could be used in the Quilombola Community.
In the month of June of this year, the 2021.1 academic semester will begin for new students of Distance Learning courses approved in the selection processes coordinated by UFRN’s Permanent Center for Competitions (Comperve), which took place between December 2020 and January this year. To help in the setting with this teaching modality, the University’s Pedagogical Coordination of Distance Education and the Academic Advisory of the Distance Education Secretariat (SEDIS / UFRN) will promote the course “Student Training in Distance Education”.
According to the Pedagogical Coordinator of Distance Education / UFRN, Lilian Giotto Zaros de Medeiros, the main objective of the course is to enable understanding about the concepts and characteristics of Distance Education, considering the centrality of the student in the teaching and learning process, in addition to presenting the possibilities of academic experiences and the routine of distance education students at UFRN.
The program was divided into three modules, which will be held from May 31 to June 2, 2021, always starting at 7 pm, in the Virtual Learning Environment “Moodle Mandacaru Acadêmico”. Registrations can be made from May 18 to 31 via SIGAA (access a video tutorial). For more details on the schedule, click here.
