In that way, the general objective is attempting to understand in which manner the Oriented Teaching can contribute for the formative process of the subjects in matter. The methodology is qualitative/quantitative, concerning two dimensions: a quantitative one, seeking to draw a general panorama of the Oriented Teaching in Brazilian Federal Universities and a profile of the discipline in UFSM; and a qualitative one, through the case study with students and Professors of PPGE/CE/UFSM. Therefore, based on the interpretative analysis of the collected data, it is drawn a panorama that defines in general terms the Oriented Teaching in Brazilian Federal Universities and it is built analysis categories that demonstrate how is the status of the discipline at UFSM. These are: Professors' instruction in the Higher Education, Feelings according to the Oriented Teaching and Influence of the Advisor.
