This Doctoral Programme aims to tackle research in Education from a multi-pronged perspective, and its main goal is to improve knowledge of the existing educational reality through research. The programme is arranged around three main areas: school, language and society.
In the field of "School", the principle lines of research revolve around the analysis of factors associated with academic performance, with the design and assessment programmes to improve centres and systems, with the impact of new methodologies and the use of digital resources, as well as the study of educational quality and the aspects linked to teacher training.
In the field of "Language", the research work is focused both on the use of minoritised languages and on multilingualism in educational contexts and in other social areas.
In the field of "Society", the emphasis is on the multiple factors involved in socio-educational interventions (interculturality, educational inclusion, family, childhood, youth, migrant populations, etc.) which require a process of reflection that can be boosted by educational research. In this sense, the core research areas may focus on agents, institutions or on professional training.
