6 de August de 2020
The Distance Education Secretariat of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte has supported and developed several initiatives, during the covid-19 pandemic, with the purpose of minimizing the impacts of social distance in the academic routine of students and professors of undergraduate courses in person and distance modes. Among the actions that have the SEDIS partnership, are the courses offered on the AVAProex and AVAProgesp platforms.
These courses aim to assist students and teachers in implementing the use of Information and Communication Technologies, called ICTs, in the teaching and learning process. In addition to these training itineraries, SEDIS, with the collaboration of several UFRN educators, developed a series of publications entitled “Notebooks of Teaching Mediated by ICT”. Altogether, 7 volumes have already been produced.
The topics covered in these copies are: 1) Design proposal for the organization of classes; 2) Basic guidelines for the preparation of the lesson plan; 3) Pedagogical sequence applied to online distance education; 4) Concepts and fundamentals of evaluation; 5) Students with specific educational needs at UFRN; 6) Learning strategies with active methodologies and 7) Learning in the Virtual Classroom (VAS) of SIGAA.
According to UFRN’s Secretary of Distance Education, Carmem Rêgo, these materials have gained national recognition and have been used by other institutions of higher education in the country, for having content that is easy to understand, joining texts and illustrations. Last month, this experience was presented, and well received, during the 1st International Seminar on Digital Culture and Education (I SICDE), promoted by the Distance Education Center (Nead) of the State University of Maringá, in Paraná.
