PRESENTATION

Prison Education (PE) is a form of Adult Education characterized by the specificity of the context and the target audience, carried out under indeterminate practice conditions and some complexity, by teachers/trainers, who often face security issues, lack of resources and adequate knowledge to carry out their activity.

These professionals need continuous and specialised training, and it is essential to stimulate the discussion of practices, moments of sharing and debate on a whole multiplicity of issues related to the prison environment, promoting safe and effective proposals in order to prepare the prison population for a more fruitful reintegration into the family, society and the labour market – the main goal of PE.

The Portuguese Prison Education Association (APEnP), an institution based at the University of Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro (UTAD), together with the School of Human and Social Sciences (ECHS), decided to invite national and international experts to their 1st International Cycle of Conferences – Paths and Challenges in order to promote the acquisition and improvement of knowledge, skills and educational innovation of teachers/trainers, who make the prison context a privileged field for their professional development.

 

AIMS

The 1st International Cycle of Conferences (ICC) aims to contribute to a transformative perspective of education and training practices in prison, in order to:

. Provide a comparative view on models/systems of Prison Education in Portugal and abroad;

. Through knowledge sharing, reflection and good practice, stimulate continuous professional development and networking to help teachers meet their needs and better address educational challenges in prisons;

. Enable teachers to make a broader assessment of the skills acquisition and development needs of inmate students;

. Disseminate research and innovation work and/or projects developed in prisons, aiming to deepen the knowledge and sharing of good practices;

. Promote a culture of training and permanent updating of pedagogical performance in the prison setting;

. Analyse and discuss education and vocational training programmes and reflect on their effects in terms of reintegration of ex-offenders into society and the labour market.

 

TARGET GROUP

Teachers, trainers, researchers, academics, lecturers, practitioners, higher education students, librarians, adult education and training organisations, policy makers, administrators, governors, managers, instructors, prison officers, and other professionals, whose interests lie in promoting, improving and disseminating Prison Education.

CONTENTS

Session 1 – Prison Education: Portugal and the European context

Historical overview on models/systems of education and vocational training that have been in place in prisons at national and international level, proposing a comparative analysis and critical reflection on the current paradigm of Prison Education.

Session 2 – Adult Education and Training (in prison)

This session will be divided in 2 parts:

Part 1 will address epistemological principles and conceptualisations that shape current methodologies in adult education and training, proposing an interdisciplinary approach to, among others, progressive, andragogic, humanistic and transformative perspectives.

Part 2 will debate proposals for (re)shaping the conceptual frameworks leading to adult education and training in the prison setting by presenting and discussing education and vocational training programmes in various prisons.

Session 3 – Research work and Projects in prisons

This session includes the presentation and dissemination of projects and/or research and innovation work, aiming to contribute to a greater perception of the potential for educational intervention in the prison context.

Session 4 – Reintegration

This session will serve to demystify the idea of ‘social stereotyping’, of total confinement and abandonment to which the institutionalised individual is subjected. It also aims to present and discuss programmes and policies, particularly in an area where Education plays a vital role, in addition to examples of good practices of reintegration into society and the labour market.

 

METHODOLOGY

The 1st ICC, under the theme ‘Education in Prison – paths and challenges’, will be composed of 4 sessions and will aim to contribute to a transforming perspective of educators’ practices, promoting the sharing of knowledge, experiences and examples of good practices, stimulating the acquisition/development of educators’ knowledge and skills. During the sessions speakers will present papers in which the themes of each session will be addressed. In the debate moments, interaction and discussion of ideas, conceptions and perspectives between participants and speakers will be promoted.
