Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Professors of Medicine usually lack teaching education apart from their speciality. This kind of education and the development of researchers in education are now a priority. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the scope of the visit of professors in the development of aptitude for critical reading of reports on educational research and educational texts in a teaching-education program. MATERIALS AND METHODS: An educational strategy was implemented to promote the development of a stance on education and on aptitudes for criticism of educational texts and research reports, which were assessed by means of previously validated instruments. A group of 10 professors was studied. RESULTS: After the course, all the participants increased their scores. A p = 0.005 value was obtained with the Wilcoxon test in the three instruments applied. All the participants showed a stance on education in the retest. CONCLUSIONS: The educational strategy modified and increased the professors' stance on education. The results showed a significant change of stance for critical reading. Even though they are incipient, these results should be encouraged through continuing formation of teaching education.
