GT03 – Professional training and required skills of the engineer.

Coordenadora: Profa. Dra. Adriana M. Tonini (CEFET-MG/ UFOP)

Summary: The contemporary world, known as “knowledge era”, presents a competitive scenario between organizations and, consequently, the labour market is demanding workers increasingly efficient, multifunctional and competent.

Technological advances and globalization affected the market characteristics, changing even the demand for professionals. Added to this are the changes in the form of production and new social requirements that, by reinforcing the need for a new profile of the engineering professional make the need for change a recurring subject in the academia, in Brazil and abroad.

In the 1990s, the debate on the engineer’s profile to the new millennium was intensified and the term “competence” passed to occupy a prominent place in the study of the contemporary engineer’s profile, so that, in Europe and the US, major studies were initiated to define what are the skills required from the engineer and talk about the need to reform the educational system.

The university then has a commitment with society and students, in order to provide an education that fosters conditions for professional to join and remain in the labour market, and in this context, it is vital that skills are developed during university education, consistent with those needed for their professional performance. It is noteworthy that this does not mean that the focus of education is exclusively meeting the demands of the labour market, reaffirming the importance of a generalist, humanistic and reflective formation.

In this scenario, it becomes important to identify and analyse the skills that the modern engineer must develop as professionals such as engineers are directly involved in work processes, product manufacture and provision of services, in various economic sectors of the globalized world.

Coordinator: Prof. Dr. Samuel Pereira Campos (UEPA)

Ementa: This round table will address issues of rural education and social movements in the countryside based on the discussions held by researchers working in the state of Pará. The experience of rural education today in the south and southeast of Pará is, in a sense, the result of the struggle for land by rural workers since the 1970s. In this region, according to INCRA data, there are 505 Settlement Projects with some 80,000 families in an area of ​​more than 4 million hectares. The debate around the education of the field and the experiences that have been experienced since the implantation of the courses of Agricultural Technician and Agroecology and Degree in Field Education, by alternation, in the Rural Campus of IFPA and UNIFESSPA, among others, is the result of the struggle for land tenure, with support from various entities. In the roundtable discussions, we will also share research results in this region of the state, explaining the protagonist references of the actors that make up the Paraense Forum of Field Education, social movements in the countryside, universities and sectors of public power (state and municipal). It will also be discussed the precariousness of the educational reality faced by the subjects of the field and the positioning regarding the regulation that is established in the relation of the populations and social movements of the field with the State and the universities in the occasion of the implementation of the policies of education of the field at the present time. Likewise, processes for the materialization of the UNIFESSPA Full Degree Course in Field Education will be presented, focusing, in particular, on the historical partner contexts of the formation of the students, made possible by the alternation of time-spaces of formation, under the guidance of the following questions : what meanings does the course produce for training policies and processes? How the course contributes to the consolidation of a field of knowledge formulated in the tension that feeds and drives the project of training teachers of the field.

GT12 – Youth and the labor market: the transition from school to work and its consequences for social reproduction

Coordinator (s): Prof. Dr. Diogo Henrique Helal (FUNDAJ); Profa. Dr. Danielle Cireno Fernandes (UFMG)

Ementa: Brazilian social inequality is the victim of a process that perpetuates itself between generations, namely: the early entry into the labor market, which alleviates the chances of educational achievement and restricts decent access to the labor market, thus composing itself in a vicious circle. Investment in education, before any interpretation, must be understood as having an end in itself, namely: learning. However, for the academic literature and public managers, years of schooling and their quality have been understood almost exclusively as a source of access to the labor market. This working group focuses on the study of the context of the transition from school to the labor market understood here as done at any stage of the school system even concomitantly.

GT13 – Teaching, learning and social and human relationship in the educational context of the rural zone and riverside communities

Coordinator Dr. Esequiel Gomes da Silva (UFPA); Profa. Dr. Sandra Maria Job (UFPA)

Ementa: The problems related to education in Brazil, in general, are still challenges to be overcome in the 21st century. In this sense, specifically, this WG will host discussions that involve the challenges and advances related to the educational context of basic to higher education located in the rural area or in riverside communities. It is understood here as educational context, teaching, student, working conditions of the teacher, gender relations, teacher-student interaction, schools infrastructure, forms of locomotion, training and qualification of teachers and related subjects. In an interdisciplinary perspective, the objective is to know and reflect on the various educational realities that (about) live on the margins of the great urban centers.

Assistant: Ms: Lusia Mary Rolemberg Menacho (IFPB).

Ementa: The notion of professionalism represents an important inflection in the world of work today, as it necessarily implies a return on subjectivity. In this sense, learning experiences (labor, social, existential) constitute a pertinent basis of reflection, capable of favoring a better knowledge of the processes of formation and of the ways in which the human person appropriates his / her experiences, throughout life, and of them takes lessons that can resize their perception about themselves and the world of life, allowing them to favor more personal and professional satisfaction, ethically responsible. The WG proposes to bring together researchers whose studies are anchored in narratives of experience (written, oral, digital, audiovisual) used for multiple purposes: a) as a qualitative research method; b) practice of training and reinventing themselves; c) an instrument of peer evaluation for entry and promotion in professional careers (memorials, records for the recognition of knowledge and skills-CSR, portfolios, letters of intent …), relating these autobiographical narratives with the different approaches that have multiplied in the The focus of the debate is therefore on epistemological, theoretical-methodological, and memory-related issues, on subjectivity, on identity (professional, gender) that emerge from the narratives of experience as inputs to research, training, insertion into culture and working life. The WG intends to strengthen the biographical movement and its existing research networks at the national level.

GT16 – Ethnic-racial relations, gender and knowledge production

Coordinator: Profa. Dr. Silvani dos Santos Valentim (CEFET-MG)

Ementa: This Working Group aims to deepen, in an interdisciplinary perspective, the Ethnic-Racial Relations, Work and Education. It is through culture that human beings give meaning to their actions as an act that goes beyond a system of customs since it is the object of human intervention. Ethnic-racial relations, on the one hand, allow for a refined understanding of how diversity manifests itself in educational institutions, in the world of work and in social relations, is, on the other hand, an opportunity for the questioning of exclusionary, discriminatory practices and racist. This WG brings together researchers of education, culture and race relations in traditional communities, black, indigenous, quilombolas, fishermen, riverside, among others, in their interface with work and education and in the scope of Technical Education and Professional and Technological Education.

GT21 – Philosophy of technology and gender

Coordinator (s): Profa. Dr. Débora Pazzetto (CEFET-MG); Prof. Dr. Luiz Henrique de Lacerda Abrahão (CEFET-MG)

The “Philosophy of Technology and Gender” WG proposes a transdisciplinary academic reflection between the philosophy of technology and the various perspectives of studies on gender, post-identity identity. It intends to discuss naturalizations of sexual and gender diversity in relation to technology, as well as technical deviations from gender norms. Contributions on feminist studies of science and technology, virtuality, corporeality, and the role of technologies in the constitution and subversion of gender and identities, in connection with other social markers of differences such as class, work, race / ethnicity, schooling, religion and territory.

GT22 – Analogies and metaphors

Coordinators: Prof. Dr. Ronaldo Luiz Nagen (CEFET-MG); Prof. Dr. Ivo de Jesus Ramos (CEFET-MG); Prof. Dr. Alexandre da Silva Ferry (CEFET-MG)

Ementa: The WG proposes to discuss the theme of analogies, metaphors and models (A & M) in education and the world of work in the following perspectives: cognitive heuristics; the construction of knowledge; of scientific dissemination in centers and museums of Science and Technology; the teaching and learning process and professional and technological education. In the cognitive heuristic perspective we intend to discuss the role of A & M in the creative process and in the discovery based on the known to the unknown. In relation to the process of knowledge construction will be discussed A & M present in the History of Science, Technology and the Arts. Regarding Science and Technology centers and museums, we intend to discuss the use and roles played by A & M in the conception and exhibition of museum objects for dissemination of Science. In the context of teaching and learning, in different areas of knowledge, A & M will be taken as objects of discussion regarding systematic and / or spontaneous use. Regarding vocational and technological education, we intend to identify and attribute meanings to A & M in the training processes related to the world of work.

GT23 – Workers’ knowledge and experience

Coordinator: Prof. Dr. José Newton Garcia de Araújo (PUC Minas).

Assistants: Ms: Danielle Teixeira Tavares Monteiro (PUC Minas); Ms: Nesmária Sany Costa Alves (PUC Minas)

Ementa: In this WG, it is proposed to discuss research and intervention practices in work environments. It is based on the hypothesis that, in their daily living in organizations, workers accumulate unique knowledge and experiences, becoming, therefore, the subjects most capable of analyzing the conditions and / or pathological organization of work processes . In this sense, it is they who can provide the most pertinent subsidies to propose changes in situations that cause suffering at work. Although there are several theoretical and methodological approaches that rely on such a hypothesis, we will seek to favor the research and interventions based on the clinical theories of work, that is, ergology, work psychodynamics, activity clinics and work psychossociology.

GT24 – Professional gestures and interculturality

Coordinators (a): Prof. Dr. M. Sébastien Pesce (Université François Rabelais / France); Profa. Dr. Lucília Machado (UNA); Prof. Dr. Antônio de Pádua Nunes Tomasi (CEFET-MG); Prof. Dr. Hervé Breton (Université de Tours – Université François Rabelais)

It aims to work on the conditions, the theoretical determinants, the methodological forms, as well as the effects of the alternative pedagogies, more precisely those that concern adults: pedagogies in adult education, those that are placed in the context of social, community, of local development projects. For this reason, we are particularly interested in alternative pedagogies as a resource for social innovation projects. From the point of view of the process, we want to work on the question of pedagogies mainly by supporting real pedagogical experiences, that is, in the presentation and analysis of educational experiments that were conceived and developed, or observed by the participants of the WG. Another challenge is to consider the experiences that have been developed in various cultural / geographical contexts presented by GT members, notably in South America, Europe, Canada. We also propose to carry out the analysis of these experiments using as a frame of reflection the contributions (theoretical or methodological) of great thinkers, practitioners and pedagogical currents.

WG 26 – Literacy practices: identity and teaching work

Coordinators: Prof. Dr. Vicente Aguimar Parreiras (CEFET-MG); Profa. Dr. Leiva de Figueiredo Leal (UFMG); Prof. Dr. Cláudio Humberto Lessa (CEFET-MG); Profa. Dr. Rita de Cássia Augusto (COLTEC / UFMG).

Ementa: We propose to debate aspects constituting the identity of the teacher from his discursive practices and his teaching action regarding the importance of his initial and continued formation for well-informed pedagogical practices; to the role of the theories and applications of the notions of ‘literacy’ in the teaching work and to the influences of the teaching identity in the management of the interactive networks in its practice.
