SANTOS, Ligia Amparo da Silva et al. The pedagogical project for the undergraduate program on nutrition at the Nutrition School, Universidade Federal da Bahia, Brazil: a proposal in-the-making. Rev. Nutr. [online]. 2005, vol.18, n.1, pp.105-117. ISSN 1678-9865. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1415-52732005000100010.
The pedagogical project principles are based on eight educational issues: professional profile, competency, educational strategies, topic issues, curriculum organization, learning assessment system and course evaluation. The fundamental aim of these issues is the integration of knowledge(s), in order to overcome dichotomies such as those of the biological versus the social, the theory versus practice, the basic cycle versus the professional, and the individual approach versus the collective and the multiprofessional practices. The searches for curricular flexibility and methodological innovation imply a new way of learning which is based on the autonomy and independence of the students. Incorporated in the project, as its central elements, are the scientific and pedagogical training of teachers and the course evaluation process. The proposal intends to socialize the discussion, thus contributing to improve the education of nutrition professionals in Brazil.
