Distance Education As An Opportunity For Technological And Professional Vocational Training
Certain questions surrounding the provision of professional and technological distance education lead us to reflect on the current reality in technical training. This research is placed within the context of two onsite polarities. In the first place, we asked the respective online education coordinators about the Brazilian Red e-Tec program. Second, we looked at the technical courses that are being offered by IFSul/CaVG. By means of the Collective Subject Discourse methodology, it was possible to provide a dialogue between the course coordinators and the theorists, which are used as the foundations of this study. Collective discourse highlights the importance of professional qualifications to improve quality of life or the economic /social development of municipalities. Within this rubric, it also considers the acceptance of distance education as an opportunity for students, namely those who are not located near regular schooling facilities.
