APRENDIZAGEM TRANSFORMATIVA NO ESPAÇO ORGANIZACIONAL: UMA ANÁLISE DA PROPOSTA ANDRAGÓGICA DA PETROBRÁS

In this new century, organizational learning assumes a great relevance. It was sought by means of that research work to explore the literature and to present some theoretical reflections about learning process in adults as an attempt of better understanding the paradigms of analysis turned to the process of learning in organizations. The theoretical construct of this investigation is centered on the theory of the transformative learning of adults developed by Merizow (1991, 1997). This work has as the central goal to investigate, under the optics of the theory, the andragogical proposal of Petrobras. More specifically, it was intended in this investigation: i) redeem some aspects of history of this organization, distinguishing the elements that structured the andragogical process proposed by its corporative university and; ii) verify whether the andragogical proposition of the organization object of analysis, guides itself by the pre-supposed of transformative learning theory. Research concluded that a number of presuppositions of the theory are present in the andragogical proposal of the corporative university of the organization studied. However, there is a diversity of important presuppositions defended by the theory, which are not yet placed into practice in corporative education of that organization. This investigation finalizes with the proposition that other studies be performed encompassing that important thematic, aiming to present new proposals of educative programs for the corporative university and enterprises in general.
