Master’s Degree in Education Sciences – Pedagogic Innovation

The cycle of studies geared towards obtaining a Master's Degree in Education Sciences – Pedagogical Innovation is comprised of 4 semesters (2 academic years). Those who successfully obtain 120 ECTS are awarded the title.
Based on the active nature of learning and adopting a critical view regarding the school curriculum, this course intends to promote innovation in education by reflecting on what the school of the future will be.

Thus, the Master's Degree in Education Sciences – Pedagogical Innovation seeks to train skilled workers capable of intervening both within and outside schools as true active agents of change; promote the development of alternative pedagogical practices; foster a sense of teaching professionalism and autonomy through increased awareness of the strong relationship between schools and society as well as the absolute non neutrality of curriculum; develop the understanding of learning environments created by emerging digital technologies; develop generic and specific skills (instrumental, interpersonal and systemic) which allow for autonomous lifelong learning.
