The work considers a didactic experience narration, accomplished in an introductory discipline from the Pedagogy course. It tries to ponder how the professors of the future teachers´ actions are more related with the traditional academics rituals than with revolutionary principles that generate effective changes in the educational (or social) areas. The text is also concerned with how the incorporated theoretical discourses in the courses plans, but they are lost in the routine of the classroom or in the very University.The narration searches to promote thought about universities professor’s contribution for background of more critical teachers, considering the incoherency between the predicated theory and the actual practice of the professor. At last some minor initiativesare presented to attempt “transgressing” the institutionalized, to shatter with existing power relations in the educational institutions. The work brings, in its core, some observations registered by students who participated on this initiative.
