Learning outcomes

The aim of the course is to analyse the themes related to pedagogical education in the time of pluralism and complexity. Pedagogy plays a crucial role in facing many of the current crisis and conflicts. In particular, the course aims at identifying the most suitable pedagogical approaches, and at clarifying the most effective and efficient intervention opportunities. The course deals with the most recent developments in the field of intercultural pedagogy, and it provides the opportunity to reflect on the training opportunities and methods in relation to the globalisation and the global interdependence.
