DUBEUX, Luciana Santos et al. The training of evaluators in the Distance-Learning Module: a need becomes a reality. Rev. Bras. Saude Mater. Infant. [online]. 2007, vol.7, suppl.1, pp. s47-s52. ISSN 1519-3829. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1519-38292007000600006.
This article presents the proposal for the Basic Course in Health Evaluation of the Instituto Materno Infantil Prof. Fernando Figueira - IMIP - which aims to teach the main concepts and approaches adopted in this field of work, the use of distance learning principles and technology. The course forms an integral part of the National Policy for Institutionalization of Health Evaluation, with a view to training professionals occupying strategic positions in the three management levels of the Brazilian National Health Service, in various parts of the country. Given the expected profile of the health evaluator, the necessary qualifications for this professional were established and a teaching proposal centered on critical, reflective, autonomous learning and based on a dialogue between theory and the practical work of the student. To design the course, a multi-professional team was set up (including evaluators, teaching consultants, computer technicians and designers). The work was divided into the following stages: design and production of teaching materials, development of the website, training of tutors, and selection of students.
