From Latin magisterĭum, magisterium is he position or profession of teacher and the teaching that he exercises with his students. The concept is also used to name the set of teachers of a region (a city, a province, a country, etc.) and at the teacher grade that was obtained in a faculty.

TeachingFor instance: “My daughter Belén is a teacher in a small rural town”, “You cannot have a similar behavior: it should respect the teaching profession”, “The city teachers decided to hold a 48-hour strike to demand better wages”, “Marta wants to study teaching”.

Teaching professionals those who, at this time, have to face a multitude of issues in order to perform their role in the most effective and enriching way possible. These are facts or elements that have been appearing, little by little, in our society or that at least now have become more visible.

Specifically, one of his main fields of work now is that of technology. By this we refer to the fact that teachers have to choose not only to use traditional teaching resources in their classes but also those that have been emerging and that serve to greatly facilitate their work while studying by the students. .

Thus, we should highlight the use of computers, tablets or digital whiteboards. A whole compendium of instruments that, together with the use of the Internet, have caused a real revolution in the field of teaching.

It is interesting to know that, for example, in the case of Spain, Teaching is a university career that has different modalities in the Educational System: Teaching in Early Childhood Education, in Special Education, in Primary Education, in Physical Education, in Music Education, In Hearing and Language, in Foreign Language …

In the field of religion, the magisterium is the moral and dogmatic authority who exercise the Dad and the bishops of the Catholic Church. Through the magisterium (or the Magisterium Ecclesiae, in Latin), the ecclesiastical authorities have authority for the teaching of the faithful.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church (CIC) maintains that the magisterium exercises, in the name of Christ, the interpretation of the word of God. It is possible to distinguish between solemn magisterium (which is infallible and irrevocable, without being contradicted by the Pope or the councils) and the ordinary magisterium (can be modified by the authorities).

The magisterium, on the other hand, is also the presumption or severity affected when speaking or doing something: “The president magisterially declared that the revolt had been quelled”, “With seriousness but without teaching, the scientist explained the dangers that plague the population after the new spill”.
