The seminar has as theme the Public Higher Education in Brazil, addressing in particular two issues: expansion and dropout. On the first aspect, it aims to make a regionalized analysis of the expansion of the Federal Institutions of Higher Education in the territory with reference to the volume of enrollment and the profile of graduates. By publishing a detailed examination of the regional profile of in-person undergraduate students, we expect to demonstrate the significant contribution that this public policy of higher education has made to the process of social inclusion, research and professional training in Brazil. Dropout will also be addressed, problematising the current use of definitions and measures to evaluate institutions. Such uses have often been aligned with a quantitative, fiscalist and with a markedly colonial perspective.
This seminar is part of the activities of Op.Edu | Observatory for Education and Training Policies, in partnership with CC.EDU | Working Group on Citizen Science and Education
It will take place on the November 8, in CES Alta – Room 1 – starting at 10:00 AM – the Roundtable Anti-Opressive Education Practices
This roundtable intends to promote a dialogue about teaching practices based on an anti-oppressive conception of education. It will be a space to debate pedagogical practices that challenge the hierarchies that maintain social inequalities through unequal power relations and that, therefore, seek to confront injustices that marginalize and harm individuals and social groups.
The roundtable will start with an initial presentation on some examples of anti-oppressive educational proposals developed in the context of a doctoral research project. Afterwards we will discuss the urgent need to expand and consolidate anti-oppressive educational practices in a more global context.

The OP.Edu – Observatory for Education and Training Policies, held on May 26, an international seminar, in hybrid format, under the theme Schools and Covid-19: cross research perspectives, think about the future, which had the presence of researchers from the French research units LIPHA – Laboratoire Interdisciplinaire d’Etude du Politique – Hannah Arendt (University of Paris-Est Créteil) and LACES – Laboratoire Cultures – Éducation – Sociétés (University of Bordeaux).
In the seminar, the findings of the project L’école au temps du Covid, funded in France by the Nouvelle Aquitaine Region, were presented by Filippo Pirone (LIPHA, University of Paris-Est Créteil), co-coordinator of the project with Régis Malet (LACES – University of Bordeaux) and by the researcher Keyla Santana (LACES – University of Bordeaux).
This project counted with the cooperation of researchers from CeiED and the OP.Edu team in data collection from directors, teachers and parents of Portuguese schools.
The researcher Ana Benavente outlined the results of the study Impact of the Covid-19 pandemic in the Portuguese education system, carried out in 2020 by OP.Edu and coordinated by a mixed team from CES – Centro de Estudos Sociais (University of Coimbra) and CeiED (Lusófona University), which included, in addition to the researcher Ana Benavente, researchers Paulo Peixoto and Rui Gomes.
The Seminar had the participation of the director of CeiED, António Teodoro, the co-directors of OP.Edu, Teresa Teixeira Lopo (CeiED) and Ana Maria Seixas (CES), and researchers from OP.Edu and CeiED involved in the initial and continuous training of school teachers.
The seminar allowed the definition of research axes to enhance international cooperation and the dimension of comparative analysis of national projects to develop on the challenges posed to the School in the post-pandemic, and the strengthening of the matrix of the research proposal that OP.Edu is currently preparing to submit for funding.
