  • Launch of the 5th call for SFERE-P-DAFIP projects in the field of research.

    In response to the 5th call for SFERE-P DAFIP projects, 5 projects have been proposed by schools of the REP and REP+ networks. Researchers from SFERE-Provence member laboratories are invited to learn about these projects by clicking on this link. If you wish to take part in one of these projects, please send your answer sheets (also on AMUbox) to the DAFIP at the following address: ( and in copy)

    Returns are expected by July 5

    As a reminder, these "research, training, field" projects in the area of priority education aim to provide a response by researchers and teacher-researchers to the needs expressed by the field, which can generate training resources that can be used at the academic level.

  • Ampiric Day - June 23, 2021

    Ampiric day of exchange on 5 fundamental learning skills: reading, writing, reasoning, counting, respecting others
    Distance learning on June 23, 2021

    Ampiric is a unique device. Anchored in the "Research-Training-Field" project of the Inspé of Aix-Marseille University, and associating the Inspé of Nice, it starts from the observation of a "school of reproduction" of social and gender inequalities in France (Pisa 2015 ranking / items: readings, science, mathematics, collective problem solving). Marseille is, like the academy, a reality and a strong symbol of these inequalities: in this commune, one of the best high schools in France is located next to the largest number of REP+ schools (23). How can we train teachers for such different contexts, and how can we articulate the fundamentals between them, in a transdisciplinary perspective? In order to meet this challenge, Ampiric combines the anchoring in the field, the support of fundamental and collaborative research, pedagogical innovation and the promotion of a new relationship to knowledge and training. This unprecedented association is a strength that will enable us to envisage a profound renewal of teacher, CPE and PsyEN training by 2030, and of student learning.

    To question, redefine and decompartmentalize learning and fundamental knowledge
    To develop research and training in this field
    To reinforce the dynamics of collaborative research and transdisciplinarity
    To organize the cycle of Ampiric 2021-2022 conferences on these fundamentals.

    10-minute presentation of the project by Virginie BABY-COLLIN, head of Ampiric
    5 moments of 45 minutes each, introduced for 10 minutes by a moderator

    Morning session :
    Reading: Johannes ZIEGLER (Ampiric) / Writing: Jean-Luc VELAY (Ampiric) / Writing: Nicolas SEMBEL (Ampiric).

    Counting: Patrick LEMAIRE (IUF) / Respecting others: Julien GARRIC (Inspé) - Final synthesis of 45 mn (led by Jean-Luc VELAY & Nicolas SEMBEL). - Main witness: Patrick LEMAIRE.

  • 2nd edition of the SFERE-Provence conference

    30 and 31 March 2021 in Marseille

    Learning and educational policies. What interdisciplinarity, methodologies and international perspectives?

    This conference is supported by the Pôle d'Innovation, de Recherche, d'Enseignement pour l'Education d'Aix-Marseille (AMPIRIC) and financed within the framework of the 3rd Future Investment Programme (P.I.A. 3). It aims to improve the performance of students, particularly those with learning difficulties, by developing, experimenting and disseminating innovative pedagogical approaches through networking between research, training and teaching activities, with a view to breaking down disciplinary barriers.

    The educational policies and strategies defined as well as the methodological and interdisciplinary challenges related to these questions will be analysed through four axes: 1/ Contributions, limits and new challenges of educational research on fundamental learning, 2/ Between international educational strategies and national and local policies against inequalities: what responses from the actors?3/ Governance of innovation, transformation of pedagogy and teacher creativity, 4/ Collaborative or participatory teacher-researcher research: what positioning and competencies of the researcher and what contributions in terms of educational policies?

    The calls for papers for this colloquium, initially open until 31 March 2020, have been extended until 31 March 2010. July 31, 2020

  • International Research Symposium on the Didactics of Mathematics 2020 - Space and Geometry

    From 4 to 6 November 2020
    Site Inspé d'Aix-en-Provence, 2 avenue Jules Isaac, 13 100 Aix-en-Provence, France.

    The RDiMath2020 Symposium aims to present the latest work, to deepen certain theoretical questions and to open up new reflections, both on the approach to geometry itself and its link with the structuring of space, and on teaching in classrooms, the dissemination of resources, the use of different artefacts (digital or tangible) or teacher training in this field.

    The symposium is a continuation of meetings between geometry coursemakers organized over the past three years.

    The work of this symposium is organized according to different mechanisms which aim to..:

    • the study of different research sub-themes through conferences;
    • the dissemination of scientific news through posters;
    • discussion and exchanges through an organized questioning time.

    The proceedings of the RDiMaths2020 international symposium will be published.

    Scientific Committee: Teresa Assude and Claire Guille-Biel Winder - responsible; Fabien Emprin; Patricia Marchand; Anne-Cécile Mathé; Karine Millon-Fauré; Edith Petitfour

    Organizing Committee: Claire Guille-Biel Winder (responsible) ; Teresa Assude ; Pierre Eysseric ; Emilie Mari ; Karine Millon-Fauré.


    Symposium organised with the support of the INSPE of Aix-Marseille, the IREM of Aix-Marseille, Aix-Marseille University, the ADEF laboratory (Apprentissage, Didactique, Evaluation, Formation) and the ARDM (Association de Recherche en Didactique des Mathématiques)

  • 3rd Scientific Meeting of SFERE-Provence

    Meeting day for researchers, doctors, doctoral students, master's students whose research work is in the field of "learning and education". It aims to create structuring synergies in the field of educational research within the federative structure, according to current issues at national and local level.

  • 2nd Scientific Meeting of SFERE-Provence

    September 27, 2018 at ESPE in Aix-en-Provence

    This day gave rise to a meeting between researchers who wish to work in the field of "learning and education", as it is now defined in the framework of AMU. More specifically, these days aim to create structuring synergies in the field of educational research within the federative structure, according to current issues at national and local level.

    This meeting took place in two high points:

    • 1st time: a poster session where each team posted its work. The participants were able to discuss around the posters with members of the scientific community of SFERE-Provence.
    • 2nd stage: a 3-minute oral presentation to the general public based on a slide show describing the main lines of the research in progress or the project, each presentation was followed by a discussion.

    Project initiator : Pascal Terrien - University Professor- Inspé AMU (Aix Marseille University). Laboratory ADEF EA4671 -
