Teaching methodologies for meaningful histology learning

Luisel V. Rodríguez C.

The meaningful learning, as the central construct of Ausubel's original conception, expresses the mechanism that allows meanings be attributed in a formal classroom and assume certain conditions and requirements for their achievement. It is a theory that deals with the process of construction of meaning by the learner, which constitutes the essential axis of teaching. It is a human mechanism to build, develop and assimilate knowledge. In this context, we present this new work, which central objective is the use of concepts and theoretical foundations of this theory as a reference for the classroom, and the use of active methodologies to develop meaningful learning in students of histology, to provide them with a better understanding of matter and enable their application at any time of practice.
