Education

Education is a core element of a human being’s constitution and comprises the social formation processes involved in gaining access to a group’s culture and to ways of being, acting and reflecting. Educational processes and practices occur intentionally or not in different socialization settings. Education happens in relationships between human beings with the goal of forming individuals and it is tied to the civilization process. Starting at the modern era, schools have concentrated the social responsibility to form subjects so as to ensure their participation in the productive system as well as in public life. Educational action presupposes a specific set of conceptions about what is to be human, and such conceptions vary according to social and historical contexts. Education is also related to culture, to values shared by human groups and communities. Education transmits, perpetuates and changes the human experience of culture through the teaching and learning relationship.

Concentration 5:  Languages and Knowledges in Formative Contexts

This degree concentration focuses on the production of contemporary social actors, especially its epistemological aspects related to teaching and learning. We aim to critically investigate the challenges posed by contemporary knowledge production and appropriation, through the exam of relationships between the production of knowledge in different settings (academic or not) and the transformations that have taken place in multiple historical, social and cultural contexts. We propose that the conceptual frameworks from different fields of study – such as Philosophy, Sociology, Linguistics, Psychology and the specific Didactic areas – be employed to investigate formal and non-formal educational processes, especially matters related to: a) knowledges produced in various formative contexts; b) teaching and research methods applicable to teaching and learning processes in multiple levels and settings; c) the constitution of scientific and mathematical knowledge; d) the specific and pedagogical knowledges necessary to the production of knowledge; e) how to incorporate scientific formation in K-12 syllabi; f) the production of textbooks and other learning resources; g) the mechanisms by which meaning is produced in a variety of languages (written, oral, imagetic, cartographic, hypermedia, scientific etc.); h) teacher formation and continuing professional development aiming at the integration of media to the social practices that comprise the educational ethos; i) digital inclusion actions and/or programs that work towards social inclusion; j) teacher formation and continuing professional development geared towards conceptual teaching and learning; k) the constitutive elements of pedagogical activity in general and teaching and learning processes in particular.
