8th Seminar on the Formation of Educators

22/10/2019: General House

With the theme "Effective Innovation from the Sources", the Unions of Superiors General (UISG and USG) held the 8th Seminar on the Formation of Educators on October 4-5 at the Marist Brothers’ General House.

The Secretariat for Education and Evangelization of the Marist General Administration is part of the Education Commission of the USG and UISG, which organized the seminar.

The course, which takes place annually in Rome, is aimed at those in charge of education in the General Curia, to the members of the General and Provincial Councils and to the various national or regional officials of the different educational institutions concerned.

This year's seminar, facilitated by Professor Augusto Ibáñez and Father Samson Ehemba, proposed that the participants work on the meaning of educational innovation, to see the present reality that Catholic schools are living, and to deal with these two matters: the aim or purpose of the Catholic school, and how to achieve a unique, significant and sustainable transformation that will generate a cohesive quality education.

The objectives of the meeting were as follows:

  • To strengthen the innovative approach of the Catholic school arising from its Christian identity.
  • To reflect on the conditions that will guarantee the development of meaningful educational innovation.
  • To identify the right questions to ask and the necessary steps to take in response to strategic challenges.
  • To analyze the keys to an innovation that will contribute to the strength and uniqueness of the Catholic school.
  • To draw up a joint document on the theme of the seminar that gathers the contributions of the various groups and that will encourage reflection by the staffs of the institutions and schools.
