Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to present the results obtained with the execution of a course of basic subjects in Astronomy for university students of Physics in face to face and in distance learning courses that were organized through Potentially Significant Teaching Units (PSTU). It is an applied and descriptive research, and the technical procedures adopted were survey (pre-test, post-test and qualification questionnaire) and technical action research (application of the course through the PSTU). Through statistical analysis the results show that the difference of the means (before and after the course) of the students is statistically significant, indicating a possible evolution in the basic knowledge of these in relation to the themes of Astronomy proposed in the didactic sequences. In addition, according to the qualification test the activities developed in the course administered, created a favorable climate for learning, thus indicating the success of the same.
