Questo corso di pedagogia generale si propone come il continuum naturale del precedente, che era focalizzato sulle teorie e sui modelli. In questa seconda parte del percoso, oggetto del discorso saranno le pratiche educative, ovvero l'applicazione dei concetti precedentemente illustrati. La pedagogia infatti è un ambito di ricerca empirica oltre che critico/teoretica, per cui l'attenzione sarà rivolta ai contesti in cui si realizza l'apprendimento, all'agire educativo, ai metodi educativi e all'educazione come strumento di crescita ed inclusione sociale.
