VERAS, Renata da Silva and FERREIRA, Sandra Patrícia Ataíde. The affection in the teacher-student relationship and its implications on learning in the university context. Educ. rev. [online]. 2010, n.38, pp. 219-235. ISSN 0104-4060. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-40602010000300015.
This study aimed at investigating how the stance of the teacher in the classroom implicates on a positive learning experience for students. This study was conducted in a Pedagogy Undergraduate Course with 1st and 3rd period classes, at a public university located in the city of Recife-PE. Therefore, we made 4 observations in each of the classes investigated and we also conducted semi-structured interviews with four teachers and eight students -four from each class. We performed a qualitative analysis and the data was organized into two themes, namely: (i) posture of the teacher in the classroom and learning experience for the student, (ii) positive and negative aspects in the affective relationship between teacher-student in classroom. The results showed that when teachers and students contribute to a positive affective relationship, it leads to a positive learning experience.
