European planning, active learning, and educational ethics. Four free webinars organized by IUL University starting in June

As part of the master’s degree course “Educational innovation and lifelong learning in adult education in national and international contexts”, the IUL Telematic University offers four in-depth webinars, free of charge and open to all, held by some of the course teachers.

The online meetings will provide an overview of adult learning, current EU education and training policies and European programmes. We will also discuss the use of some apps designed for active teaching/learning. The cycle of webinars will close with a reflection on the role of education in complex societies starting from the thought of Edgar Morin and a new philosophical anthropology.

This is the calendar of meetings with the links to access:

June 8, 5 pm

Designing in a European dimension

Speaker: Prof. Sara Pagliai

During the webinar, an overview on current European Union policies, on education and training and on European Programmes as a tool for implementing these policies will be given. We will then focus on the Erasmus+ Programme, on its activities, novelties and possible opportunities for schools, teachers, pupils, students and European citizens in general.

June 13, 3 pm

Educational app for active learning and teaching

Speaker: Prof. Luca Piergiovanni

The range of apps useful for building digital courses and lessons is nowadays very wide. There are educational apps for mobile devices of all kinds, including smartphones, and for all types of operating systems. However, what are the criteria for choosing the best apps for digital teaching that would be truly integrated into the school and work environment? The webinar will offer a very wide range of apps useful for this purpose, allowing participants both to acquire the technical skills necessary to use them to the fullest with students, and to know the educational potentials that are essential to improve teaching and learning processes.

June 14, 6 pm

Myths and legends in adulthood

Speakers: Prof. Elena Mosa and Prof. Silvia Panzavolta

During the webinar some of the most common biases in relation to forms of learning in adulthood will be highlighted through an interactive and dynamic format, with the aim of exemplifying some of the contents of IUL’s psychology and pedagogy subjects which are part of the course of study in “Educational innovation and lifelong learning in adult education in national and international contexts”.

June 15, 5.30 pm

Towards an ethics of teaching in a changing society

Speakers: Prof. Ubaldo Fadini and Valentina Chianura

The webinar will discuss the role of education in complex society starting from the thought of Edgar Morin and a new philosophical anthropology.

The password to access is: iul2022.

IUL research: Call for abstracts “Innovative learning environments. Rethinking school spaces”

The international scientific journal IUL research – for its six issue –  has published a new call for abstracts entitled “Innovative learning environments. Rethinking school spaces between pedagogy, architecture and design” edited by Raffaella Carro and Blyth Alastair.

Learning environments have been for long a core theme of academic debate. In the last ten years, also the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) focused its attention on the relationship between school architecture and learning processes, highlighting the importance of placing the pedagogical-didactic paradigm at the centre of the analysis and the planning of the school environment.

At national level, the “New guidelines for school buildings” published by the Ministry of Education in 2013 promoted a new idea of school, where the typical space organised in rooms and corridors was replaced by a system of complementary and synergic spaces, in order to form an integrated environment supporting learning and socialisation in all the school spaces.

The aim of the call is to collect contributions coming from different scientific environments, enabling to address this challenge by tracing theoretical and practical paths so that investment on the renovation of school architectures would be the driving force for a real transformation of the school system.

Contributions will be welcomed in Italian and English specifically aimed at studying one of the following topics:

  1. Rethink existing school buildings
  2. Educational spaces and well-being
  3. Educational spaces and inclusion
  4. Educational spaces and digital technologies
  5. Educational spaces and learning processes
  6. Physical space and virtual space: hybridization of environments
  7. The role of furnishings in the preparation of educational settings
  8. Schools and interior design (interior designers…)
  9. Common spaces, informal environments and school libraries
  10. External spaces belonging to the school: the courtyard, the garden, the terraces
  11. Participatory planning
  12. School architecture, urban planning and territory
  13. Post-covid school spaces


The deadline for submitting abstracts for evaluation is March 14, 2022.

To send the abstract, please follow the directions starting from this link.
