Abstract

It is often said that it is easier to learn what is observed and practiced on a daily basis; to the need to effectively link theory with practice considered in the process of teaching and learning, many strategies have been developed to allow this process to be carried out in a more efficiently maner. It is, therefore, very important to recognize that an appropriate teacher/student relationship is essential for students to acquire the skills and abilities required.

Frecuentemente se dice que es más fácil aprender aquello que se observa y se practica de manera cotidiana; ante la necesidad de vincular efectivamente la teoría con la práctica considerada en el proceso de enseñanza-aprendizaje, se han desarrollado estrategias que permitan que este proceso se lleve a cabo de maner más eficiente. Por tanto, es importante reconocer que una adecuada relación profesor/alumno es fundamental para que este adquiera las las habilidades y destrezas requeridas.
