CHI MAIMO, Arturo; PITA GARCIA, Ariel y SANCHEZ GONZALEZ, Marta. Conceptual and methodological fundamentals for a developing teaching-learning process in the human morphophysiology discipline. Educ Med Super [online]. 2011, vol.25, n.1, pp. 3-13. ISSN 0864-2141.
The setting of the university polyclinics model implies that the student should independently acquire his/her own knowledge. In the initial study of this situation, as a result of the class supervision and the didactic workshops for facilitators and tutors, it was found that in the teaching-learning process of the Human Physiology and Morphology subject at several teaching models in the medical studies, there are still some traits of the so-called "traditional" teaching. For all the above-mentioned, the conception of the teaching-learning process of this discipline is still poor since those conceptual and methodological fundamentals for its design and implementation are not determined yet. The objectives of this study were to systematize the conceptual and methodological fundamentals for a developing teaching-learning in Human Morphology and to identify the methodological requirements and the didactic principles for this process. It was concluded that the developing character of this process will be determined by its organization and orientation towards a leading role of the student in the learning activity. The structuring of the teaching and learning process aimed at the active search of knowledge on the part of the students and the development of their logical processes of thinking is the starting point for changing and regulating the activity of both the student and the professor.
