IEP axis

The “Institutions and Education Practices” line brings together researches on training and educational practices, that focus specifically on social and institutional contexts. It combines two sub-domains both aiming at developping researches based on didactics and sociological approaches: 

  • The “Knowledge  practices, genesis and diffusion” sub-domain focuses on the scientific study of didactic practices, i.e. learning and teaching effective practices, both from an academic and a non-academic perspective. Its members develop a systemic approach of didactics actions, and more precisely through the Joint Action Theory in Didactics.
  • The “Politic, context and actors” sub-domain brings together projects mainly about the analysis of education policies, their evolutions and the assessment of their impacts. It also focuses on sociology of experience and actors of education’s logics of actions.

Collaborations between both axes for the last five-year cycle have resulted in joint projects (see « opérations de recherche » section presented below) and a cross-subdomain seminar, researchers from one of the subdomains shedding light on the work of researchers from the other subdomain.
