The second series of sessions which are part of the First International Scientific Seminar in Learning Sciences will take place on the 15th and 16th of March 2013 at the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya (UIC) Faculty of Education, in Barcelona. The overall Seminar, entitled “Grounding Best Schools in Cutting Edge Research” address the main research questions on interaction and learning that are being explored in the learning sciences. The first series last 1st and 2nd of February with Professor Anne Edwards (University of Oxford) and Professor Courtney B. Cazden (Harvard University) have been an enormous success and have evidenced the high quality standard of the whole Seminar.
On March 15th, Ramón Flecha and Marta Soler (University of Barcelona) will discuss “The dialogic principles of Successful Educational Actions and Dialogic Reading” on the ground of the results from the Integrated Project INCLUD-ED, from the 6th Framework Programme of the European Union http://www.ub.edu/includ-ed/ The next day, on March 16th, Linda Hargreaves, from the University of Cambridge, will analyse the principles of Effective Group Work in the Classroom as well as children’s personal epistemologies and the ways to take them into account for teaching.
Each session will be divided into two parts. The first part (10am-2pm) will be an in-depth presentation and discussion by the learning scientists on the state of the art about their research, a central topic in the field. The second part of the seminar (3.30pm-7.00pm) will consist of a dialogue between the researcher and all the participants. This scientific dialogue will be grounded in readings selected by the scholar to ensure updated and relevant scientific discussion. The readings will be sent to the participants two weeks in advance.
The enrolment includes lunch.
