EVALUATION OF COMPETENCES DEVELOPED IN MEDICINAL CHEMISTRY DISCIPLINE OF STRICTU SENSU POST-GRADUATION: A CLASSROOM EXPERIENCE

<p></p><p>The knowledge transmission in scientific education demands the formulation of methods capable to insert between student and the study object a nearness, making the student apt to build, from autodidactic posture, solutions that only the professional formation can produce. In this sense, a teaching should develop an effective pedagogy, focusing on knowledge production and its preservation, helping the scientific progress. Guided by these concepts, the educational process can be considered complex and should focus on the quality of the transmitted knowledge, through strategies that ensure the maximum information accessibility. In strictu sensu post-graduation context, some particularities related to the knowledge building and not so only the concepts memorization should have more attention, due to the scientific and teacher training goals. The medicinal chemistry area exhibits the necessity to have a great interlocution with other chemistry disciplines, such as organic chemistry, analytical chemistry and as well as disciplines related to human health. In this sense, the evaluation of learning process becomes, currently, a great challenge for professors that seek to develop the interdisciplinary sense. Considering this reality, in this study, the authors present a classroom experience, where specific competences developed in students of medicinal chemistry discipline was a target of evaluation based on creation of review text. From the results obtained was possible to rethink strategies that can contribute to foster new forms to evaluate the learning process based on competences development.</p><p></p>
