After three years of taking place remotely, due to the care with the social isolation imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Pedagogical Forum of Bahiana took place in person, at Campus Cabula, on the 18th and 19th of August. With the theme "University Extension: what do I have to do with it?", the 19th edition of the event received hundreds of professors from all courses at the institution who participated in an intense program with round tables, workshops, lectures and moments of cultural respite. The entire event was coordinated by the Dean of Bahiana, Dr. Maria Luisa Carvalho Soliani, and by the coordinator of the Institutional Center for Teacher Development (NIDD), Prof. Lígia Vilas Bôas.
"In the current context, in which social transformations and demands for a more relevant teaching and connected with the territorial reality are highlighted, it is vital to understand our role in the face of academic extension and how this process can contribute to the training of health professionals committed and engaged with freedom, with the valorization and production of knowledge, access to health, the guarantee of rights and dignified conditions of life and development", pointed out Lígia Vilas Bôas. "Our desire was to present to the professors who do not carry out extension activities what the activity is, to demystify and show that there is indeed a theoretical basis. Also, to give relevance to the issue of listening, which the extension activity brings, the loveliness , collaboration. These are things that can be applied to any action, it doesn't have to be an extension", highlighted Dr. Maria Luisa.
The 19th edition brought as invited speakers professors Pedro Cruz, from the Federal University of Ceará, and Maria Caputo, master and doctor in Collective Health, from UFBA. “It was possible to perceive, in the professors, a willingness to be learning from each other, exchanging experiences. I have been doing extension for 20 years and, in that time, I realized that extension needs to be the starting point of university education”, said Pedro Cruz. As in all editions, the event ended with the Borboleguim de Ouro award, which this year was held twice, honoring the Dean of Extension at Bahiana, Prof. Carolina Pedroza, and the coordinator of the Common Nucleus of undergraduate courses, Prof. Luciana Oliveira.
