HENKLAIN, Marcelo Henrique Oliveira; CARMO, João dos Santos  and  HAYDU, Verônica Bender. Behavior-analytical contributions to describe the repertoire of effective university teachers. Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2018, vol.19, n.2, pp. 197-207. ISSN 1984-7270.

The objective of this study was to propose an analytical-behavioral interpretation of the expression effective college teacher as a behavioral repertoire and to describe general classes of behaviors that compose it. It has been found that classifying teacher work as effective involves three criteria: teaching objectives defined in terms of the needs of learners and the society; success in promoting learning without transforming the educational environment in aversive stimuli; and application by the students, when they become professionals, of what has been learned to mitigate or solve social needs. The classes of behavior identified were organized into two categories: managing teaching conditions and relating professionally. This study can contribute to the planning of training and assessment of college teachers.

Keywords : College teachers; teacher efficiency; professional competence; behavior analysis.
