Teaching Work and Capes Assessment: estrangement and naturalization

Andreza Cristina Souza Paula Ferreira Alvanize Valente Fernandes Ferenc Joyce Wassem About the authors


This article analyses the working conditions of teachers based on the relations established with the assessment policies of the Coordination of Improvement of Higher Education Personnel (CAPES), in particular, expressed in the National Postgraduate Plan (PNPG 2011-2020). The research had the participation of teachers of two Postgraduate Programs in Education (PPGE) of public universities in Minas Gerais and the data collection took place through semi-structured interviews and documentary analysis. As a result, we verified that despite the discontent, contradictions and estrangement in the PPGE teaching practice, the resistance capacity is cooled and the teachers begin to conceive the way of work, the conditions of production and evaluation naturally.
