ARGOTA PEREZ, George et al. Investigative training of university professors for the synchronous learning during covid-19. MEDISAN [online]. 2023, vol.27, n.6  Epub Dec 30, 2023. ISSN 1029-3019.


Ongoing trainings during the covid-19 pandemic enabled learning in higher education.


To describe the investigative training and pedagogical function in university professors from the psychological complexity of synchronous learning during covid-19.


A study was carried out from July, 2020 to February, 2022, at San Luis Gonzaga National University in Ica, Peru. The investigative training consisted of two modalities: training workshops and postgraduates courses. Participation was recorded in the academic areas of health sciences, engineering and arts and humanities. A dendrogram was used to describe the pedagogical function between two groups of university professors (those who had permanent attendance and those who did not).


In the training workshops, 52.0% of the participants corresponded to the academic area of health sciences, 35.0% to arts and humanities and 13.0% to engineering; while active participation was 22.2% in engineering, 8.9% in health sciences and 4.1% in arts and humanities. On the other hand, the percentage for graduate courses was 41.0 in health sciences, 30.0 in arts and humanities, and 29.0 in engineering, with active participation of 6, 4 and 3 professors, respectively. There were no significant differences in the internal evaluation between the postgraduate courses (p<0.00915). The dendrogram indicated greater similarity in university professors with permanent attendance.


There was lower attendance in postgraduates courses as the learning process was more rigorous and demanding; however, active participation was higher. There was greater similarity in the pedagogical function when attendance was permanent.
