Postgraduate School in Education for the development of civic society (EIS)
The Postgraduate School (Scuola Alta Formazione) directed by prof. Italo Fiorin, was established to further develop LUMSA’s strong commitment in the field of education. The School aims to promote both research and training, not only within the academic world, but also in the wider community so as to foster participation, dialogue, practical initiatives in the spirit of active citizenship. The School seeks to examine closely the theoretical foundations of the Service Learning method and put them into practice so as to realise the enormous potential that Service Learning offers to students, teachers, managers, teaching and non-teaching staff in schools and universities for professional, cultural and human growth.
The school organises meetings, lectures, seminars and conferences; it promotes research, keeps records of projects and publishes material on the theme of active citizenship and Service Learning.
