ERG SES D 07, Pedagogy and Education
Social Pedagogy as a discipline, science and professional knowledge reference, contemporaneously takes a central place in Portugal. Therefore this project is set up by three transversal operational posts that cross all this work: the disciplinary place (epistemological and anthropological); the academic place (training, investigative and scientific); the professional place (namely action, associative and institutional actions) of Social Pedagogy in Portugal.
Conceptually we rely on a paradigmatic reasoning based upon the pillars of understanding, analysis and interpretation, which allowed the formulation of the next research question:
Identify and analyze the distinctive features of disciplinary, academic and professional identity of Social Pedagogy in Portugal, with reference to the contemporary situation.
Therefore we present a job whose components of analysis and identification we understand as being capable of formulating future conceptual contributions compared to those that are the hallmarks of disciplinary, academic and professional identity of Social Pedagogy in Portugal.
At this stage we can list some of the signs that constitute elements of expression of this emergency sense of Social Pedagogy in Portugal:
- Output into the professional market of the first graduates with Degree in Social Education (Portucalense University, 2000);
- The launch in 2004 of the first Portuguese reference work on this subject area of study (Carvalho, A., & Baptista, I. (2004) Social Education: Foundations Strategic Port:.. Porto Editora);
- The increase of professions such as Social Education and Socio-cultural Animation that have Social Pedagogy how theirs matrix of reference and knowledge;
- The first periodical publication of a scientific journal in 2007 by the Catholic University Porto (Notebooks of Social Pedagogy 1, 2007 ISBN: 16467280);
- The creation and establishment of the Degree in Social Pedagogy, year 2012-2013, by the Faculty of Education and Psychology at Catholic University Porto.
All these signals act as communicators and contemporary elements of this emerging research theme, pointing to the Social Pedagogy as a "time", "space" and "moment" of the outbreak of a science and a knowledge that should be recorded, analyzed and identified by the universe of scientific research, in this case, the science and knowledge of Social Pedagogy.
In this sense this research team is developing a study of identification, analysis, survey and collection of documentary information which will be the core of this empirical research, listing the following principal goals and specific objectives:
