  • Exploration of strategies and tools to make students more active in their learning;
  • Transformation of its current learning activities through a collaborative writing strategy so that students co-construct their knowledge and develop their skills;
  • Boosting an embodied school through various transformational leadership strategies: how to share leadership so that all school stakeholders can exercise it in their respective daily functions?

In addition, numerous discussions by participants divided into disciplinary teams made it possible to tackle active pedagogy practices, thereby bringing the collective intelligence of all these specialists to contribution in a professional development operation by peers.
