MINNAARD, Vivian Aurelia. Sinergy in the Formulation of a Research Problem. Path to an Interdisciplinary Look. RIDE. Rev. Iberoam. Investig. Desarro. Educ [online]. 2019, vol.10, n.19, e044.  Epub Nov 17, 2020. ISSN 2007-7467.

The search for activities that promote collaborative work in students of the Chair of Research Methodology of the University Fraternity of Groups Santo Tomás de Aquino in the city of Mar del Plata, Argentina, is a permanent challenge. Therefore, it is proposed as an objective to analyze the use of strategies and resources selected by the holder of said course in the four careers of the Faculty of Medical Sciences so that students formulate an interdisciplinary and collaborative research problem in the August-October period 2018.

This is a descriptive, longitudinal investigation, with a selected sample that is not probabilistic, for convenience, of 193 students belonging to the Medicine, Kinesiology, Nutrition and Phonoaudiology careers who study the subject Research Methodology. In order to achieve what was proposed, the students participated in a series of activities that favor the passage of the disciplinary perspective to the interdisciplinary approach in the approach of the topic “Tuberculosis”, with the development of a research problem as a result of the process carried out. The transit that students make when moving from one phase to another is embodied in the spider web, a strategy implemented from a shared document that allows students to work collaboratively asynchronously, and be monitored by the teacher. This also makes visible deliveries, advances, exchanges and agreements made in the working groups.

The fluidity with which scientific knowledge moves currently requires a permanent review of practices that favor the teaching and learning of the various contents that must be developed in a university chair. Developing a research problem is one of the key steps. Every patient must be treated comprehensively and this requires training in interdisciplinary work by those who pursue careers in medical sciences.
