From Research-Training to the (Re) Construction of Knowledge and Practices in Teaching with Babies
Bahia, Celi da Costa Silva, Ph.D.; Solange Mochiutti

The study was developed starting from an in-context experience of training, based on the theoretical assumptions of research-training. The objective was to think over the contribution of research-training in the process of construction and (re) construction of knowledge necessary to the activity of teaching with babies; to register the changes in the teachers’ pedagogical practices with babies derived from the process of research-training; to contribute with the studies of teachers’ continuous training in this line of research. The research was performed in a child education unit integrated to the municipal public network of Belém. Methodologically, observation and individual and collective meetings were used. The research-training revealed significance in the construction babies teachers’ professionality, favoring the reflection and deepening of theoretical-practical issues about babies’ education, and contributed with the production and deepening of fundamental knowledge in the process of thinking about initial and continuous training for the Child Education teacher.
