Learning outcomes

The course aims to provide the basic elements of the pedagogic debate, by studying in depth some topical subjects. Starting from the results of the most recent scientific research and from the challenges and “traps” of the 21st Century (crisis of values, of orientation, and of education), lessons will try to show the central position of pedagogy, useful to face a lot of present crisis and conflicts. After the analysis of some of the most significant proposals, it will be possible to think over aims, methods and educational means that can improve the progress of civilization. In particular the course will focus on the education in a pluralistic society.
