The purpose of this article is to present the results of an Research - Action – Collaborative (R-A-C), in the context of higher education, carried out by a team of research professors from Instituto Superior de Tecnologias Avançadas (ISTEC), where one of the mandatory requirements is to have a certified teaching staff with pedagogical training for distance learning.This investigation aimed to answer the challenge / problem launched by the founding entity of ISTEC, of submitting an application to Agência de Avaliação e Acreditação do Ensino Superior (A3ES), for two new degree courses, in fully online, in the context of covid-19 pandemic. The qualitative methodology used in this research, carried out during the months of June, July and August 2020, by a collaborative team of 19 research professors, with descriptive analysis supported by the state of the art. Regarding the results, there was an effort in the research to gather contributions and pedagogical practices that can cover the specific needs of students enrolled in distance courses.
