ROZENDO, Célia Alves; CASAGRANDE, Lizete Diniz Ribas; SCHNEIDER, Jacó Fernando  and  PARDINI, Luiz Carlos. An analysis of the teaching practices of faculties in the health area. Rev. Latino-Am. Enfermagem [online]. 1999, vol.7, n.2, pp.15-23. ISSN 1518-8345.

The study aims to describe teaching practices - in planning, execution and evaluation of the teaching-learning process - used by faculty of some courses in the health field in Brazil: Odontology, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Psychology, Nutrition, Social Work and Veterinary Medicine. The sample was made up by 29 faculties enrolled in a didactic subject course at graduate programs. They answered a questionnaire with semi-open questions. The answers obtained point to a "banking" education practice, according to Paulo Freire. This kind of education is characterized by: 1) emphasis on the transmission of information; 2) many hours of education; 3) little integration between courses and 4) lecture classes.

Keywords : teaching practices; faculty; health area.
