GONZALEZ-CONTRERAS, Alonso et al. Academic satisfaction and teaching practices perceived by Chilean health degrees students. FEM (Ed. impresa) [online]. 2019, vol.22, n.3, pp.103-107.  Epub Oct 14, 2019. ISSN 2014-9840.


Teaching practices are still a little investigated phenomenon, despite its relevance for the quality of higher education.


To analyze the relationship between teaching practices perceived by Chilean health degree students and their academic satisfaction.

Subjects and methods:

649 health students from a university in Chile were surveyed. They answered the Academic Satisfaction Questionnaire and the Teaching Practices Perceived by Students Questionnaire, after an informed consent process.


Students perceived more traditional, more planned and less student-centered teaching practices. In addition, perceived teaching practices and student information, such as training moment, degree, sex and age predicted 37.19% of the academic satisfaction.


Academic satisfaction varies according to degree and educational levels completed by the student. It is also associated to their sex and is enhanced by constructivist pedagogical practices.
