GARAY NUNEZ, Jesús Roberto. Social Representations of University Teaching and Pedagogical Practices from the Perspective of Students of Health Sciences. RIDE. Rev. Iberoam. Investig. Desarro. Educ [online]. 2020, vol.11, n.21, e010.  Epub Mar 09, 2021. ISSN 2007-7467.  https://doi.org/10.23913/ride.v11i21.700.

Studying and reflecting on the social representations of university teaching and pedagogical practices from the perspective of health science students allows for an analysis of the reality that exists in public institutions of higher education in Mexico. The objective of the present work was to determine the figurative nucleus of the social representations of university teaching and of the pedagogical practices of professors in the health area. Methodologically, the natural semantic networks technique was used to determine the social representations and pedagogical practices of the university teacher from the perspective of the students. The value of natural semantic networks is that the taxonomies obtained are generated directly from the subject's semantic memory, and the order given is in accordance with their scale of values ​​and perceptions. As part of the results, it was determined that the figurative nucleus "University teaching" falls on the central concept of being prepared to teach the class, followed by the concepts that make up the peripheral system of social representations: trust, responsible, committed and assertive . All these components are basic to determine the association networks. While for the figurative nucleus "Pedagogical practices", the central concept is that of exam application as the main tool to evaluate the learning of students in the health area, followed by the concepts that make up the peripheral system of social representations : exhibition, synoptic table, concept maps and summary. All these components are basic to determine the association networks. In conclusion, regarding the networks of associations of the responses of the university students of health sciences that are presented in the configuration of the central nucleus of the social representations of university teaching, which correspond to the first association network, the concept central refers to the academic preparation of teachers. The second network of associations of social representations of pedagogical practices, meanwhile, allows determining the content and organization of social representation, which is determined by the evaluation of learning through the exam.
