Inclusion and Mediation: insertion strategies at school (35 hours)

Since it is clear that school institutions and their agents are not yet prepared to deal with differences in their daily lives, betting on an inclusive society is a big challenge. To think about inclusion is to enable the construction of spaces where it is possible to contemplate the singularities of each student within a collective environment; to create classrooms that fit all worlds, understanding them as environments of translation between cultures, experiences and different forms of life. We believe that there are no ready or right answers on how to deal with the challenges that inclusion produces, thus, to foster real change in schools, we think it is crucial that we foster learning spaces for deepening knowledge about differences, disability, inclusion, adaptation of material, teaching for all, accessibility, and for encouraging the discussion of ideas. The course is coordinated by Professor Cristina Carvalho.

Childhood, culture, education and aesthetics (65 hours)

On the understanding that social relationships, physical objects, ways of life and learning, places, and activities are the basis on which the child dialectically builds his/her understanding of himself or herself and of the world, this course is intended to reflect on the experiences of cultural development offered to children at school and at cultural institutions. The role of the educator and his or her cultural background will also be addressed, highlighting its importance in the mediation between child and world. The course discusses how the aesthetic experiences developed in these spaces can permeate the child’s relationship with the world; promote the establishment of new connections; enable the construction of knowledge; and also to contribute to the processes of meaning and communication in childhood. The course is coordinated by Professor Cristina Carvalho.
