Integrating emotions and rationalities for the development of competence in active learning methodologies

Carlos Alberto Mourthé Junior Valéria Vernaschi Lima Roberto de Queiroz Padilha About the authors

This paper discusses a rationalist/objectivist tradition of teaching and learning, with the support of a constructivist, dialogic and competence-based educational practice. Artistic expressions, particularly cinematographic ones, are presented as educational triggers. Students are organized into small groups in which they share, correlate and discuss their emotions, allowing for a better understanding of the rationalities involved in the learning process. As the groups present different stages of problematizing their emotion, we propose categories to support teachers and members in identifying the conversational nature of the groups, supporting their interventions and contributions for the individual and social development of the participants, with reference to a proficiency profile.
