CANOPF, Liliane; APPIO, Jucélia; BULGACOV, Yára Lúcia Mazziotti  and  CAMARGO, Denise de. Teaching practices in higher education management courses: analyzing the mediation of emotion. Organ. Soc. [online]. 2018, vol.25, n.86, pp.371-391. ISSN 1984-9230.

Considering emotion to be indispensable in the constitution of the psyche and as an inseparable mediator of action / cognition and of a meaningful teaching-learning process, emotion is hypothetically considered as one of the essential conditions for overcoming purely instrumental reason, which is dominant in Management undergraduate programs, and for nourishing a more sensible reason that incites critical and reflective attitudes, as well as a more plural way of facing reality. By means of a qualitative approach, of a constructive-interpretative nature, the importance of the mediation of emotion in the teaching-learning process was investigated. The unit of analysis consisted of the teaching practice in a Management undergraduate course in a Brazilian federal university. The practice, based on daily activities, where an individual’s singularity is legitimate for building up scientific knowledge (REY, 2005), was conceived through the cultural-historical approach. The research was based on a dialogic process, with the employment of simple self-confrontation method, interviews and field notes. The results support the proposition that emotion as a propeller of a meaningful process of teaching and learning, underpinned by the theoretical presupposition that emotion is the “genesis and support of human activity and construction of meaning (CAMARGO, 2012, p. 1).
