This research area (General Pedagogy, Social Pedagogy, History of Education, Experimental Pedagogy) covers topics related to the development and the education of children, to learning over the whole lifespan (Lifelong Learning), to learning in different educational and experiential contexts (Lifewide Learning), and in a broader sense related to cognitive and affective-emotional interactions, values, cultural and inter-generational relationships (Lifedeep Learning).
Particular emphasis is placed on educational contexts that are formal (schools, in particular the nursery and primary school), non-formal (families, playing centers, associations, churches, and various cultural and educational centers in the region), and informal (popular culture, personal and mass media).
Focus on lifelong learning in South Tyrol:
Lifelong learning and the development of a public space as a local and global citizenship. The future of the South Tyrolean society: representation and metaphors of citizenship.
