Course contents summary
Over presenting the theoretical background of education, the course focuses on the contemporary debate about the role of pedagogical research inside this area, and, most of all, about the role of Theory of education. Moreover, the course faces the potential of the research on Scouting, as an example of what a more correct characterization of the research object can do for the deep renewal of the epistemic shape of Theory of education itself.
