The aim of this paper was to reflect on the approaching possibilities between interdisciplinarity and university teaching. This approach facilitates a new attitude towards knowledge, a process to learn to be a professor at the higher educational level and significant dynamics of the own trajectory and of theoretical-methodological references. The recognition of teaching as a social practice, allow critical analysis of the training proposals present in a society that gives attention to intersubjective spaces. To understand training as the creation of authorship places the university teaching as a profession having a historical-scientific trajectory, with a relational dimension, and a permanent focus on teaching development. To train university professors starting from interdisciplinarity means a process-project: a process, because the professor configurate themselves within the academic life, with its histories and possibilities, and a project, due to the fact that within the social interactions, senses are elaborated, and spaces and proposals are constructed answering to social demands.
