PEDROSO, Maísa Beltrame  and  CUNHA, Maria Isabel da. Living innovation: experiences in the course of nutrition. Interface (Botucatu) [online]. 2008, vol.12, n.24, pp.141-152. ISSN 1414-3283.

This study results from careful considerations on the pedagogical practices considered meaningful by students of the undergraduate course of Nutrition, as well as, in the protagonism of the female teachers who develop them. We tried to understand whether these experiences mean innovation in the perspective of a paradigmatic rupture, considering innovation as a discontinuous process of breakage with traditional ways of teaching and learning. A qualitative methodology of study and the ethnographic approach principles were used. The activities pointed out by the students as meaningful practice were of different kinds and included those interactions with affective and subjective dimensions, which involve emotion, sensitivity, and esthetic perception, articulating, thus, subjectivity and objectivity, science and culture, technique and politics. Personal and professional trajectories are defining factors of teachers' performances, revealing their conceptions on their pedagogical procedures. They indicate the conditions in the constitution of the higher education teacher professionality. So, this study aligns to other researches that aim at building the basis of the university pedagogy.
