About us

The Post-graduation Program in Science and Mathematics Teaching (PPGECM) consists of Master's and Doctorate degrees, professional modality, recognized by CAPES and linked to the Institute of Exact Sciences and Geosciences of the University of Passo Fundo. The program focuses on the development of educational products and is focused on the practice of teaching in different levels of education levels - different levels of education – elementary school, high school and higher education.

The master's and doctorate courses propose to develop methodological actions that permeate the scientific, epistemological and pedagogical foundations and apply new information, communication and interaction technologies, also producing didactic and experimental materials aimed at basic education.

Another proposal of this course is to enable the professionals to develop methodologies to facilitate the comprehension of concepts related to Science, Physics, Chemistry and Mathematic by deepening it. The purpose is to provide the professional possibilities to participate in discussions which the mainly focus is the human construction regarding the history and its relation with social, political and economic contexts. In this way, the teaching and learning process developed in the course is based on interdisciplinary approaches, involving the knowledge of different areas.

Target audience: The course is intended to teacher’s formation in Science and Mathematics areas, to work in different levels of education, mainly in the basic one or in graduation degree courses oriented to teacher formation area. Licensees, Bachelors and Technologists, with others trainings areas of knowledge will be able to attend the course provided the connection with the Program areas and turn their research to them.

The program is aimed at graduates, in the case of a master's degree, and masters, in the case of a doctorate, who work or have the prospect of acting as professors in the areas of Science, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Geography, Pedagogy, Mathematics, Engineering and related áreas.
