O Instituto Federal e a Licenciatura em Química: Os Caminhos para Tornar-se Professor Formador em Diferentes Espaços de Níveis e Modalidades

The Federal Institute and the Licenciate Degree in Chemistry: The Paths to Become a Teacher Trainer in Different Spaces of Levels and Modalities





The paper presents an excerpt of a doctoral research that focused on the Federal Institutes, their historical
setting and teaching practice, where different levels and modalities of teaching coexist. The consolidated
licenciate degrees in the IF show formative paths that are materialized in the diversity, and the research
investigated the structuring of the teacher profile identity of the IF trainer teacher and their experiential
teaching knowledge at different levels and modalities. The praxeological knowledge of Pierre Bourdieu
and his relational analysis system is the theoretical background used to correlate the teacher and the
arrangements of the institution. We used the Critical Communicative Methodology (CCM) to analyze
14 semi-structured questionnaires applied to licenciate degree trainers at five campuses. The MCC identified
the obstacle element fragmentation in levels category, it comes from the performance in a level and/or
modality. In which, we identified a certain distance of the teacher from the institution internal dynamics,
mainly from the interaction between High School Education and College Education. The transforming
element of interlevel teaching category showed a plural, versatile and adaptable teaching profile to the
institutional dynamics. The diversity of the IF makes it possible to design training paths that internalize
the interactivity of experiences in the high school education and chemical teacher training, expanding
the view of the trainer to the profession.
