The paper presents a quasi-experimental study
achieved in the framework of the life-long education
programs of the didactic staff in the Caras –Severin area.
The instruments used were: the themes generating sociocognitive
conflict and the interactive methods based on the
use of the conflict in learning. The themes proposed in the
education incite to an exchange of ideas and opinions and
the interactive methods based on the use of the conflict in
learning can be applied in other continuing education
programs, too.
