Collection : Entretiens Ferdinand Buisson

Education is an important matter in contemporary societies, as it is highlighted by the central position of educational topics in political platforms or by the many debates about educational issues. In the meantime, one often regrets that educational discussions and policies are not based enough on research evidence. Linking research, practitioners and policies therefore becomes a main stake in the field of education. Scholars and academic institutions are frequently asked to support and advice educational practices on strategic challenges, using their research.

In this framework, contribution of the collection Entretiens Ferdinand Buisson  wants to open an original space for debate between academics and practitioners, on a social issue at stake on educational agenda. From this point of view, the collection aimed a broader audience than academic readers, for the two books published each year.

At each time, the editors ask to researchers to make a specific writing clearly oriented towards educational actors and education stakeholders. At the same time, practitioners are asked to give their thinking about the same topic. After which, both researchers and practitioners have to react together during a round-table meeting and going into the common topic in depth. Following the roundtable, final versions of the papers are written and reviewed before publishing.
