The use of digital communication resources has provided practices and experiences in the field of education with virtual learning environments, thereby enabling greater participation and collaboration among those involved. The process of creating the course design emerged as an educational product performed in the Professional Master’s Degree in Health and Technology Teaching at the State University of Health Sciences of Alagoas. Thus, the present article aimed to describe the design of an improvement course for pedagogical training in the online distance modality through the Moodle Platform for Occupational Therapy internship supervisors of a state public health institution, elaborated from a survey of pedagogical needs found as an object of study. For the development, the interactionist theory of education and the meaningful learning supported by Collaborative Online Learning were considered, serving as a basis for using a collaborative and reflective environment permeated by information technology in the development of less individualistic and more collaborative pedagogical and communicational practices in order to better reach learning objects and facilitate communication, thus promoting a necessary dialogue between the University and the practice scenarios in the service. We conclude that the design of the training course for internship supervisors was based on previous models and theories, such as Online Collaborative Learning (Harasim, 2015) and used active online methodologies, which provided an articulated and interactive knowledge and reflections on pedagogical needs in the teaching of in-service practices. Additionally, it is noteworthy that the use of the proposed model will be able to adapt to different pedagogical approaches and also be offered to other groups of participants.
