Assistance In Finding A Pathway To Distance Education: Guidelines To Help Lead The Way, A Description Of The Navegation Strategy, And Vital Contributions
This paper focuses on the debate about Distance Education (DE), i.e. within the context of undergraduate courses. It aims to identify the progress and/or difficulties that occur during the development of this modality-- thereby highlighting benefits that have not yet been explored. For this reason, students opinions were recorded in a questionnaire and later categorized and analyzed using the Discursive Textual Analysis method. Upon doing this study, a number of issues were proposed concerning the dynamics of DE processes, such as: the gathering of data related to (online) interactions, the flexibility of different levels of onsite education, and the relationship among the various authors jointly involved in the analysis, as well as (with) digital technology. For pedagogical action to be translated into dialogue, it was necessary for communication to be enhanced by means of active listening, and also for learning to be considered as a process that occurs in the act of doing and within the context of working harmoniously.
