Teaching Innovation

Traditionally the teaching has been a monologue in one direction, both in the transmission of knowledge from teacher to student in the way to examine. This is due to the nature of the programd instruction and the need to establish a system of evalacion aim to grant the titles.

In these days we want to create a different atmosphere in which pupils acting as professionals, with objectives that go beyond the mere acquisition of academic credits or the fact of receiving knowledge. We want to promote that they themselves generate knowledge and share it with the global society.

We seek to foster the critical spirit, the ability of interdisciplinary dialog and self-tuition. It seeks to question everything that is assumed to descubirir why is described to us the reality as we teach it.

This investigative spirit beyond the argument of authority is the engine of these days.
