The School of Education Science offers theoretical and practical preparation at various levels of education, intercultural communication and pedagogical consulting. It has developed a unique and innovative interdisciplinary method for conducting clinical, empirical, theoretical and applied research founded on the interaction of various knowledge bases: pedagogical, philosophical, anthropological, psychological, sociological and historical, among others. The School offers a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate programs for the professional education and training of teachers working at primary and secondary school levels, providing considerable expertise in the use and integration of digital technologies in teaching. Digital learning environments, intelligent agents, leadership of educational institutions and professional learning and knowledge management within both private and public institutions have recently become the core of the School research activity.
