Cognitive Skills Strengthened during the Course of Research Methodology in Medical Sciences Careers
Asian Journal of Advanced Research and Reports,
Introduction: From March 2020 onwards, the global health situation generated decision-making in different areas in all countries, including academics. The actors involved in Higher Education were not oblivious to this situation. The chair of Methodology for Health Sciences careers implemented variability of proposals. The Objective was to analyze the degree of acceptance of the strategies and activities implemented during the Research Methodology course in the year 2021 by the students of the careers of Phonoaudiology, Medicine, Nutrition and Kinesiology and Physiatry of a privately run University. and from the Geography and Mathematics careers of a Teacher Training Institute, Mar del Plata, Argentina. The work team also wanted to investigate what cognitive abilities were developed strengthened with each proposal implemented.
Materials and Methods: The research carried out by the teaching team of the chair was developed in a descriptive way, with 189 students selected in a non-probabilistic way for convenience.
Results: They identify the follow-up developed on COVID in different countries for more than 200 days as extremely interesting, pointing out that it allowed them to strengthen skills such as recognizing, comparing, interpreting, analyzing, designing, explaining, and evaluating.
Conclusions: As those responsible for the training of professionals, it is necessary to monitor the activities implemented and make the necessary adjustments. Every problem, as has been the case during the Pandemic, becomes a challenge, a new mountain to climb that as teachers we transform into an opportunity to continue growing.
