Fundació Jaume Bofill Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC)

Thinking about future challenges of education in Catalonia

You are here


DEBATS D'EDUCACIÓ is a forum organised by the Jaume Bofill Foundation and the UOC, with the collaboration of MACBA, with the aim of encouraging debate on current affairs and background events that we believe to be key to the challenges and problems that have to be faced in education in terms of the social, political and economic context in which we live.

This forum is not designed for the exclusive use of teaching sector professionals or specialists. Bearing in mind that education represents a basic factor for the present and future of society, the forum is aimed at the general public and, more specifically, the socioeconomic, political and cultural agents in Catalonia.

With the aim of enriching this social debate that we are looking to encourage, we plan to invite people from Catalonia and around the world, who, in terms of their personal and professional experience, can contribute their vision and knowledge to the challenges currently faced by our society with regard to education.

Likewise, the website offers the possibility to compile questions, proposals, observations, etc. for the speaker, before the lecture takes place. Should the moderator deem apt, these contributions can be used on the day of the lecture during the question and answer section, but they will not be replied to privately.

The subject areas for the debates are those connected to education and ICT, education and values, educational policies, educational experiences and educational sociology.
