The course unit, by introducing an holistic perspective on the Portuguese education system, aims to critically reflect on the teaching and learning process and provide future teachers with the ability to the scientifically and pedagogically rationalize, systematize and steer their activities.
Future teachers need a consistent theoretical basis that enables them to develop research on the educational field, where many black boxes persist.
The programme aims to introduce reflection on several themes, such as the construction of modern educational systems, the current political debates on education and their unmeasured social, technical and economic impact, impact the organization of school institutions, the prescriptive and theoretical curriculum, the status and role of the student nowadays and the teacher professionalism. The approach to these themes intends to identify the main lines of the evolution of the Portuguese educational system.
The subject’s main goals are:
- to analyze the historical and political process of construction of contemporary educational systems;
- to understand the diversity of models and variables in school organization and management and their impact on the quality of educational practices;
- to analyze the diversity of orientations in curriculum theory and development and their impact on professional practices and learning outcomes;
- to identify the curriculum components (objectives/competences, contents, strategies and evaluation) in their relevance for the efficacy of the real curriculum.
- to understand the processes, contents, skills and means to foster teachers’ professionalism;
