RODRIGUES, Maria Ester. Educational psychology: perceptions of professors in education courses. Psicol. educ. [online]. 2016, n.43, pp. 69-79. ISSN 1414-6975.

The objective of this work is to present perceptions of professors in education programs on various matters related to Psychology and Education. Twelve professors of Educational Psychology and similar disciplines, working in five higher education institutions offering Bachelor degrees in a cluster city in the West of Paraná State were interviewed. Among other aspects, it was observed that participants complain about the course load of the subject, increasingly smaller. They associate this reduction to the difficulty in theory-practice articulation, difficulty in understanding extensive and varied contents by students; and they are not satisfied with teaching plans. They believe that psychologists are unable to work with learning problems that are not emotional and, consequently, to help teachers to deal with the problem; they considered Educational Psychology as excessively developmentalist and do not recognize the presence of a Teaching Psychology. Aspects already reported in literature - as the tendency of professionals to blame the student and their relatives for school failure -, are also mentioned. The study identifies the perception of professional trainers of future-teachers, and provides signs of changes to be performed in Educational Psychology, helping to build a differentiated educational reality.

Palavras-chave : Educational Psychology; perception of professional trainers; Teacher's.
