Assuming that education is not something to be transmitted, but to be built, the adopted teaching methodology will be based on a critical process of knowledge construction, from boosters shares of the teaching-learning based on pedagogical assumptions defined by the partner institution of the program. To enable learners to develop skills related to technical, scientific and instrumental bases, they will be adopted as a methodological practice active forms of teaching and learning based on personal interaction and group, and teacher's role to create conditions for the integration of students so you can master the socialization process in the construction of knowledge. The nature of the pedagogical practice is the quest, the search, research, reflection, ethics, respect, conscious decision-making, be open to the new, the different working methods. Critical reflection on practice becomes a requirement of the theory-practice relationship because it involves dynamic movement, the dialectic between doing and thinking about doing. From the experience and reflection of this practice, the contextualized teaching, it creates the possibility for the production and / or construction of knowledge, develop tools, schemes or mental postures that can facilitate the acquisition of skills. This means that in educational practice should be sought through the contents and methods, respect the interests of students and the community where they live and build their experiences. Thus, the faculty will be constantly encouraged to use creative methodologies and tools and stimulating to the interrelationship between theory and practice occurs efficiently. This will be guided through the implementation of actions to promote challenges, problems and disciplinary and interdisciplinary projects guided by teachers. Therefore, the proposed teaching strategies have different practices.
