The objective is to consider how remote education improves communication between students and teachers in the teaching-learning process. Methodologically, we analysed some remote classes in a Literature course that applied Active Learning Methodologies in the wake of authors such as Bates (2016), Bergmann (2016) and Ribeiro (2020). Our main contribution is to show how this specific educational moment, caused by the confinement, brought about the digital inclusion of students through new distance or face-to-face methodologies.</p> Roseli Gimenes Copyright (c) 2021-01-15 2021-01-15 8 2 63 78 10.37467/gka-revmedica.v8.2545 Accompany in Times of Pandemic <p>Since the beginning of the pandemic caused by SARS-CoV-2, the measures to prevent this new coronavirus have consisted mainly of social distancing and confinement, these guidelines&nbsp; that have been a great challenge for spiritual accompaniment.

In this work, from pastoral theology, it's intended to elaborate some proposals to answer this question that involves creativity and adaptation.</p> John Edward Trujillo Ríos Copyright (c) 2021-01-15 2021-01-15 8 2 79 89 10.37467/gka-revmedica.v8.2812 Puerto Rico, a Sick Social Body: from Oblivion to Memory.
