EDUC-03: Educational Vocation as Action

Educational science does not analyse natural phenomena, but it studies the way human development needs to take place, which, in contrast to what happens with animals that have a temporal development programme when they are born, appears in human existence in different manners. Therefore, the current human fulfillment model influences necessarily the educational activity, the way we see the new generations, the behaviour of  educators, the organisational structure of educational institutions, as well aseducational contents. In this context, there is a need to conduct some basic research on the structure of human dignity in order to define how to behave ourselves to achieve excellence and plenitude.
