Project timeline: Mach 29 to May 10 (2022).
History: The Project “The Teaching of Philosophy and its Didactic Transposition” is a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) which aims to discuss topics related to what is properly philosophical with regard to the common national curriculum base in Brazil (especially based on habilities and competences) and also on how to make the didactic transposition of complex philosophical topics to basic education without trivializing the themes and without making them even more complex. The project’s target audience are academics from undergraduate courses in Philosophy and professors who already work in the basic education network. The project started in 2014 (through the OpenLearning platform) and now we will develop the second edition through the Canvas by Instructure platform in 5 modules. Participants will receive individual certificates for each module completed (as each module is closed).
Promote the continuing education of those interested in improving their pedagogical techniques and discussing the philosophical bases of argumentation (analytical and probabilistic reasoning) as a topic capable of developing cognitive skills for the consolidation of general competences.
Reasoning is a fundamental tool, especially for problem solving and for anticipating events (essential for survival). There are several theories (philosophical, psychological and neuroscientific, for example) about how reasoning works (if they are syntactic or if they are semantic) and, since argumentation is one of the important tools of Philosophy, it becomes essential to understand how reasonings work and how is possible to make more efficient of the use very os this important skill. Our purpose is to promote additional and continuous training for future teachers and teachers who already work in the basic education network. In this sense, the project provides for a dialogue between the university and graduates so that a more adequate understanding of the role of Philosophy in basic education can be achieved and also on how to teach Philosophy (whether through the History of Philosophy or through Philosophical Problems). No less important is the contemporary impact of MOOCs (either in NEAR or in Universities), as they potentially reach thousands of people from different states and countries. The fact that the links will be posted on the DAO Store and that the guests will receive funding from NEAR, will cause a large number of people to start using NEAR (whose popularization could significantly contribute to the growth of DAO and NEAR as well). In 2017, when we relaunched the first edition on CANVAS, we had 650 subscribers in the first week after the course started (later we reached approximately 1,500 subscribers). Below I send the link of an article published on the website of the Federal University of Pelotas (still with the possibility of registering).
Timeline (Module 1):
Until 15 April: Call for 03 guests to recording videos about the following topics.
- Challenges of Teaching Philosophy in Basic Education.
- The National Curricular Common Base and the Role of Philosophy.
- Argumentation: Theories of Mental Logic versus Theories of Mental Models.
Until 09 May: Recording videos, video editing and production of subtitles by jsc2022.near.
10 May: Release of the videos and activities on Canvas by Instructure.
In the months of April and May we will also do the same process for the launch of Module 2, whose proposal will be forwarded for approval after the response regarding the first module - and so on for modules 3, 4 and 5).
The videos and activities will be made available on Canvas by Instructure (free and unrestricted access platform for educational purposes) with an institutional and introductory video to NEAR so that course participants understand the potential of NEAR and can contribute to the community. phttps://canvas.instructure.com/search/all_courses
