Research topics

The laboratory's scientific program is clearly anchored in Education and Training Sciences (SEF), developed around the concept and phenomena of innovation. Founded on the principles of a research community, the team promotes a theoretical and methodological approach based on questioning and confronting theories, concepts and methodological tools. Two empirical research models are particularly employed: 
  • experiments, which are based on the expertise developed by the members of LINE on action research, design research, collaborative research, pedagogical engineering, and joint action; 
  • documentation of practices, which includes in situ observation methods, but also reports of practice (clinical interviews, semi-structured and questionnaires, autobiographical account, etc.), and the collection of evidence of teaching, training or learning activities. 
The scientific program is implemented in settings that range from nursery school to university. It also brings together schools and extracurricular spaces (especially museums).


International relations

LINE's scientific program has an international focus and is developing collaborations with two universities: UQAM in Canada, through the Multimodal Media Literacy team (LMM) and the Research Group on Education and the Museum (GREM), and PUC in Brazil, through the Grupo de estudo e pesquisa em educação, museu, cultura e infância (GEPEMCI), in order to promote joint seminars and theses with joint supervision.  
As part of the university's Idex program, the team is also developing close relationships with the Université Laval in Quebec City, Canada. 

University collaborations

At the local level, this scientific program contributes strongly to the PIA3 AMPIRIC project led by Aix-Marseille University, with which the Academy of Nice INSPE and Université Côte d'Azur are associated. It contributes to the development of the PIA3 NCU écri+ project, and is also founded on constructive interactions with Inria and Villa Arson.
