On November 25th and 26th, the teachers of all courses at the Bahiana were at the Cabula Academic Unit, involved in a series of activities focused on the subject of Evaluation. Examining students, the institution and themselves: how to turn this experience, often seen as unpleasant, into something useful, welcoming and productive? The formula is not easy, but it is also not impossible to review the concepts that live around the theme. the reflection Rating: is it good for you? was the proposal of the VII Pedagogical Forum of Bahiana.
Thus, the mini course Introduction to thinking maps: a new teaching-learning language and a series of workshops were held on the first day of the Forum. On Saturday, the program started with Jornal da Bahiana and the Show das Plaquetas, presented by students of the 2nd semester of Dentistry, supervised by professors Alena Peixoto and Milene Salomão. The hilarious dramatization has even been performed during the 2011.2 Formative Selection Process and features plagiarism of popular music hits such as “I'm sad, happy” and “I won't, I won't”. Congratulations to the group!
Then, teaching, learning and assessment experiences were shared by teachers of the School's seven courses through a poster session and oral presentations that were evaluated by their peers, competing for the Borboleguim de Ouro award, given during the “Singly Things Party Boas", which took place at night, in the gardens of the Coordination, with the winning teacher Cintia Pine who presented the work “Assessing at AVA: challenges and opportunities”.
Rating: is it good for you?
According to the deputy director of Bahiana and Professor of Medicine, Dr. Enio Ribeiro Maynard Barreto, the assessment “can help in several ways: reflecting on the course, the professor and the student. In short, it becomes a feedback and not simply an exam, summarized in a note”. Among the points that most helped him as a teacher, Dr. Enio highlights his participation in the mini-course Introduction to thinking maps: a new teaching-learning language. According to him, the Thinking Maps tool can help teachers in several aspects, as "it is not restricted to the evaluation of the course itself, but it is an important pedagogical tool, since the thinking map covers from knowing when evaluating, going through several stages: understanding, analysis and synthesis”.
For the Psychology professor and manager of the Psychology Service of the Teaching-Care Clinic of Bahiana (ADAB), Sylvia Barreto, discussing evaluation, as recurrent as it may be, is always very positive. "It is a very important and current topic, it is already part of the discussions and seeing it collectively was very relevant, as we were able to discuss the assessment under the eyes of each course at Bahiana"He said.
