differently at all ages
The Education hub creates and transforms educational programmes and practices, at the individual and collective levels, to enable people to learn in alternative ways, both inside and outside of academic institutions.
Based on interdisciplinarity and research, its programmes are designed to have both individual and collective impacts, at local and global levels. In so doing, they contribute to building a learning society for a more sustainable world.
The Education hub encourages people of all ages to embark on a learning journey throughout their whole lives (with training designed for young people, undergraduates and graduates, as well as executives).
In and out of school
As part of the Education hub, the Youth department develops learning methodologies and educational engineering for young children onwards. These programmes and projects are intended to accompany and support education professionals: teachers, educational facilitators, etc.
Savanturiers - École de la recherche
Introduce students from kindergarten to high school to the challenges and methods of research, in schools and through extracurricular and out-of-school activities. Launched 10 years ago within the Institute, this programme is now supported by AFPER
Within the Education hub, the Higher Education department develops university courses, from the bachelor’s degree to the doctoral school.
The degrees are interdisciplinary (with both life sciences and social sciences) and rooted in the world of research. The students are involved in a concrete way, through the integration of new learning methods: peer-to-peer, project-based, research-based, tool prototyping and curriculum co-construction.
Interdisciplinarity and the exploration of new ways of learning give students the necessary tools to act in a systemic way and to respond to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the common thread of their training.
Frontiers of Life Sciences Bachelor degree
The Université Paris Cité’s Frontiers of Life Sciences Bachelor degree (Frontières du Vivant (FdV) Bachelor), hosted by the Learning Planet Institute, is an interdisciplinary Bac+3 programme which targets students with a passion for sciences and the world of research
The École Universitaire de Recherche Interdisciplinaire de Paris – EURIP Graduate School combines fundamental and applied research at the interface between life sciences, learning and digital technologies. Based on interdisciplinarity, collaborative learning, pedagogical innovation and scientific research methods, EURIP brings together the AIRE Master’s degree and the FIRE Doctoral School
University degree in Innovative Scientific Mediation
This university degree delivered by Université Paris Cité aims at stimulating a critical reflection on the communication of science and technology, as well as on its role in participatory science, open science, and responsible research and innovation
Building a meaningful career path through innovative teaching approaches
As part of the Education hub, the Youth department also designs inclusive support programmes for people who need to be (re)mobilised in their personal and professional careers.
The inclusion projects offer pedagogical innovations to support unemployed people (with a particular focus on young people from the Priority Neighbourhoods of the City) and accompany them towards employment or entrepreneurship. The aim is to build a career path that makes sense for them, while integrating the requirements of sustainable development.
Two methodologies have been developed around
These paths allow beneficiaries to make their projects come true, to enhance and develop their skills, to regain self-confidence and to better understand the labour market.
These individual and collective initiatives integrate innovative pedagogical approaches which are specific to the Learning Planet Institute, such as learning through design, collective intelligence, fablabs and their philosophy, virtual reality and games.
Two projects particularly embody our approach
