WARMLING, Deise et al. Approaching knowledge and experiences at a distance: report of the tutoring of a specialization course. Rev. salud pública [online]. 2018, vol.20, n.1, pp.132-137. ISSN 0124-0064.

This report aims to describe the experience of tutoring process in distance learning of the Multidisciplinary Specialization Course in Primary Care in Brazil, in the states of Santa Catarina and Paraná. Course participants were physicians, dentists and nurses included in the "Program for the Valorization of Primary Health Care" and the "More Doctors Program in Brazil", a total of 1 600 professionals. The course was structured from three theoretical axes and pedagogical mediation conducted by a team of tutoring. . It was adopted problematization methodology, developed from a critical view of reality in the teaching and learning process. The tutors worked in pedagogical orientation, supporting use of media and technology and evaluation of educational activities in the course. The students evaluated positively the didactic and the course design and performance of the tutors. One hopes that this experience can be seen as a possibility to boost other experiences in health education.
