Pedagogical Innovation: Rethinking school

PEDAGOGY. Schools in 21st century.

Description of residency program
Pedagogy, new trends of the 21st century and to rethinking what the school of the future should be like. The school is an institution where current issues are permanently present. It is one of the foundations of our society and it occupies a significant part of our time, our lives and, also, our thinking. Debates about education are always alive and complex. They happen in real time and show the controversy of different pedagogical trends.

What new school models can we propose? How should we think about the concepts of equity, social justice and equal opportunities when we organize the system of education? What kind of relation should we establish with new technology? What part should gender roles play in the educational system? Can we prepare the school for a globalized world? Also, of course, we are going to ask ourselves how the school should be related to other educational, social and cultural institutions.

These questions and many other related ones (project work, textbooks, structure and type of classes or school days) are some of the lines of work that we are going to follow at Faber during this period.
