UniSER launches first edition of newsletter 

By Kerolyn Ramos Garcia
Review: Thays Nunes

On August 27, 2021, the Universidade do Avelhecer (UniSER) launched its first newsletter , or newsletter.

the diary  do Tempo comes with a proposal to bring students, employees and external audiences closer to the world of UniSER.

The first edition tells the story of the program and how it emerged within the University of Brasília. It also features the Action project, one of UniSER's seven extension projects, and several photos of the program's pioneering students.  

The coordinator of Diário do Tempo, Thays Nunes Silva , says she is very excited about the project and that the frequency of bulletins will be fortnightly , "it is a great pleasure for all of us in UniSER communication to see this project coming off the ground. It is very important for us to share the story of the program in a more humanized and joyful way, with photos of real and dear people who were part of our history."

Doctoral student Kerolyn Garcia highlighted the importance of the event to strengthen the change in indicators to be used in the evaluation measures used by the UniSER program. “At UniSER, we have constantly reinforced the need to use evaluation indicators that more clearly reflect the results we have achieved and what we need to change to further improve the Program. Lectures like Dr. Marlene Rosa, about the game as a promoter of functionality, help us to review our evaluation instruments and allow us to advance in the use of gamification not only as an educational tool, but also as an evaluation tool with results that are closer to the real feeling of the program participants. .”


Internationalization: UniSER's target for expanding competencies


Since 2019, UniSER has been expanding its internationalization activities, taking the name of the University of Brasília as a reference in human aging. Dr. Margô Gomes de Oliveira Karnikowski stressed that “the exchange of experiences between countries fosters creativity and drives solutions for old age with the contribution of autonomy to the extent that new teaching and learning methodologies can be verified  tais like gamification. Games have been used for various purposes, both in education and health”, says the Professor.


The next step is to provide the mobility of the elderly to the national and international scenario.

So, “tourist yourself”, go to that park or restaurant in your city and do tourism. Bring your city to life. Tourism is much more than the act of traveling, it is understanding and experiencing human experiences with your own eyes, body and soul. Be part of this beautiful plurality that is to exist in this diverse world. We are plural, diverse beings, unique and different essences. Knowing the other is knowing a part of the world. Perhaps this is the great fascination of human existence.
