The discussion group focused on the recovery of learning, follow-up and assessment of students, and aimed to analyse the preliminary results of the surveys being carried out nationwide on post-pandemic changes in basic education.
Fourteen teachers and school leaders from Porto and Lisbon took part in the discussion. The project team had the collaboration of Clara Craveiro, researcher at CeiED and coordinating professor at the Paula Frassinetti School of Education, in identifying the participants from schools in the Porto Metropolitan Area, and the support from the project’s consultant Daniel Bart, full professor at the University of Lille and researcher at CIREL – Centre interuniversitaire de recherche en éducation de Lille, in drafting the script and organising the work. The team also welcomed Geanine Escobar, a researcher in training/PhD student in Museology at Lusófona University – University Center of Lisbon, who was present as a non-participating observer.
