Will and main objective of the Inspé in terms of research?
The Inspé is determined to assert its place and role on a scientific level in the fields of education, teaching and training.
Its objective is to contribute to the advancement of knowledge in the field of educational research through the implementation of a dynamic of links and interactions between research, training and the field.
The research project of the Inspé d'Aix-Marseille relies on the research and training teachers of the 1st and 2nd degrees of the School who together contribute to the advancement of educational research.
Which structure and research laboratories?
Inspé has about 70 teacher-researchers from various disciplines: economics, language science, language and literature, psychology, arts, sociology, history and civilization, geography, mathematics, dense environments and materials, structure and evolution of the Earth, mechanics, biochemistry and molecular biology, neurosciences, education sciences, information and communication sciences, sciences and techniques of sports activities.
These teacher-researchers are affiliated to various laboratories in the region: ADEF, LPL, LAMES, TELEMME, PSYCLE, CEPERC, Centre Norbert Elias (UMR 8562), CIELAM, ESPACE, LESA, ISM, IREMAM, IMR, UNIRéS, CREDO, LEST, I2M, most of which are partners of the Structure Fédérative d'Etudes et de Recherche (SFERE-Provence).
ADEF : Learning, Didactic, Evaluation, Training Laboratory
UR 4671 ADEF
Apprenticeship, Didactics, Evaluation, Training
is attached to Aix Marseille University (AMU).
Director: Christine Poplimont
The research conducted in ADEF aims to increase the understanding of education and/or training systems, especially the effects of policy decisions and the assessment of their effectiveness, in teacher and/or trainer training organisations and through the interactions between student (trained), teacher (trainer) and knowledge. They are divided into 8 programmes: Training artefacts; Clinic of Activities in Education and Training (CLAEF); Research in Didactics and Evaluation in a Comparative and Antnthropological Approach to Professionalization in Education and Training. (DECAP); Dispositifs institutionnels d'aide-acompagnement & savoirs (DIAS); Educations (à), territoires, développement et sociétés (EDT2S); Geste créatif et activité formative (GCAF); Organisateurs de l'acitivté enseignante entre dimensions didactiques et ergonomiques (ODE); Rôle des artefacts dans l'efficacité de l'éducation scientifique et technologique (EAST).
SFERE-Provence: Structure Fédérative d'Etudes et de Recherche en Education de Provence (SFERE-Provence: Federative Structure of Studies and Research in Education of Provence)
This structure, created in 2012 on the initiative of the ESPE of Aix-Marseille, aims to organise, federate and promote the work carried out in the fields of education, teaching and training by researchers belonging to the various partner research units.
Unesco Chair in Science & Technology Education and Teacher Training
The ESPE d'Aix-Marseille University and the Ecole Normale Supérieure d'Enseignement Technique et Professionnel (ENSETP) of the Cheikh Anta Diop University of Dakar wish to promote, through the Unesco Chair, in Europe and Africa, an integrated system of research, training and continuous improvement of teacher training activities in the fields of science and technology. The project consists in linking research and training with a view to structuring inter-university exchanges.
