ARCHANJO, Daniela Resende e CORREA, Clynton Lourenço. Neurological sciences under a humanistic perspective: pedagogical experience using movies. Fisioter. Pesqui. [online]. 2011, vol.18, n.2, pp.110-115. ISSN 2316-9117. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1809-29502011000200002.
The purpose of this paper is to present and discuss results of a learning activity experience that used popular movies to address issues related to neurological sciences. Students from the following courses participated in the discussion group: Arts (two), Physical Therapy (ten), Property Management (one), Public Health (two), besides one individual from local community and two professors. Six movies were used as a learning support and stimulation to discussions and construction of contextualized and critical thinking, based on life histories. The individuals from this group wrote together the projected movies' plot and selected keywords that corresponded to the subject of the discussion after projection of the movies. The plots frequently mentioned aspects associated with disease, while the keywords mentioned social and ethical aspects. Besides, the individuals performed an assessment of the pedagogical activities carried out during the semester including positive and negative aspects and suggestions. From the analyses of this material, it is possible to assert that the professor experience based on the projection of movies promoted the establishment of disciplinary interrelations and integrations, providing a construction of contextualized knowledge favoring specific professional formation able to integrate specific professional knowledge associated with general knowledge network involved.
