PEDAGOGICAL INNOVATION II

Rethinking school

After the success of the stay of “Pedagogical Innovation I, Rethinking the school” of 2018, we organize another period at Faber, from February 20 to March 20, 2019. This period is dedicated to 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? Space and time, how should we use them and how should we live through them at school? Can we describe new ​grammars of ​education? Can we describe new forms of assessment? How do we build up the curriculum? 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.

That’s why we are looking for residents to apply for scholarships offered by Faber. All kinds of professionals who work in educational field or who have reflected on the school, its problems and opportunities are welcome to apply, as well as researchers, pedagogues, education sociologists, anthropologists, economists, lawyers, managers, or any other professionals who have a project related to this field.

Faber’s objective is to promote the exchange among residents and the educational community that hosts them, in Olot, la Garrotxa and Catalonia.
