JUNG, Hildegard Susana et al. The proximal processes in postgraduate education under the bioecological human development concepts. Psicol. educ. [online]. 2020, n.50, pp. 84-93. ISSN 1414-6975.

This essay presents an experience report of a descriptive case study, focusing on the analysis of the interfaces between the relational processes in the Postgraduate Programs (PPGs). The objective was to study the personal and academic development of students in an Integrative Seminar of a community university in the South of Brazil by the perspective of the Ecological Systems Theory, developed by Urie Bronfenbrenner, with emphasis on the concept of proximal processes. The paper, of a qualitative nature, intends to disseminate the idea that a humanizing practice can lead to satisfactory results regarding the productivity of PPGs. Approximating the reader to concepts such as dyads, triads and tetrads, presents the interactional factor as ally to overcome the dilemma of productivity and quality, because it inserts the element resilience, creating a new hypothesis - would the more human PPGs, more productive and with more quality, either? If the contest to complete the academic curriculum is imminent, we can build together the necessary resilience, making the academic environment more human and less hostile.

Keywords : Proximal processes; Ecological System perspective; Productivity and quality; Postgraduate humanization.
