AbstractThis research project started from the need to inquire into the pedagogical attitudes in undergraduate study level of the Faculty of Humanities of the university institution “Universidad de la Costa (CUC)”. The main purpose of this search is to identify the pedagogical attitudes of Humanities professors from Universidad de la Costa and the influence of these attitudes in students learning. The interest in clarifying these practices focused on identifying the current state of the object of study to correlate it then with the standards of quality of the teaching and learning process of CUC. The research, approached from a descriptive point of view, basically relied on cognitive and humanists principles of developmental theory, consolidated in the educational model of the university. The methodology included a direct observation instrument through a checklist format, with 10 indicators applied to 28 teachers randomly selected. Besides, an instrument to apply to 28 students chosen at random. The results showed that a great percentage of teachers shows pedagogical attitudes in their daily practice. They are able to favor the previous learning of students; they facilitate the increase and development of autonomy of learners to manage their own knowledge. They show respect for the pupil contributions in spite of mistakes they could do. It means that professors use several procedures to develop learners’ capacities and generate knowledge. In keeping with the last information, the students express in a high percentage that their teachers show pedagogical attitudes. They have more understanding of topics when they relate knowledge, it motivates them to make their own knowledge, at the same time it promotes autonomous learning, in this way they are able to find answers to their doubts in the diverse moments of training. They consider that their teachers use positively their ideas although they are wrong. Professors become facilitators of learning, stimulating the creation and recreation of ideas or perceptions according to their reality, this let them to face any inconvenient they could have in the learning teaching process. In low percentage, as in the observation process developed as in the answers given by the students, it is evident that some professors would not show pedagogical attitudes. That is why it is necessary to propose actions according to the findings of this investigation to enrich the learning teaching process that professors carry out.
