Advanced training and international educational exchange: learning, overcoming and experiences

Formación avanzada e intercambio educativo internacional: aprendizajes, superaciones y experiências

Gilberto Tadeu Reis da Silva About the author

ABSTRACT

Objectives:

to report my experiences as a researcher during the course of advanced post-doctoral training abroad.

Methods:

theoretical and methodological option for Max van Manen’s phenomenology of practice. The activities were developed in the Health Sciences Research Unit: Nursing, in Portugal, Université Catholique de Louvain, in Belgium, and in Escuela de Enfermería y Fisioterapia de la Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha, in Spain.

Results:

participating in a multicenter international research project enabled the acquisition of new scientific knowledge, personal and cultural gains. From a broader perspective, the international graduate and undergraduate nursing networks were strengthened through the mobility of researchers, and overcoming of the “status quo” by the formation of a critical mass environment indispensable for scientific advancement.

Final Considerations:

sharing the experience that you appropriate is about the power of grasping possibilities of a practical experience, in the context of the world, and going through it, motivated by the desire to make internationalization feasible.
