Summary, in English

We hope to design a study on the development of a course on our master’s program. The course has been developed over two years in order to address two fundamental problems in the ten year old program: students from Asian and African countries were often unable to complete the program. The hitch seemed to be writing and discussing in an independent, critical and reflective way. The aim of this seminar is to share our experiences with teachers from other international programs.

This paper introduces the epistemological context first, our interlocutors Paul Trowler and Ali Cooper, and their concept of Teaching and Learning Regimes. Having introduced that, we move on to introduce the analytical-pedagogical approach to the simultaneous shaping of identities and learning of the students. Finally, we present the students classroom activities which make up the studied case and which is also what we try to develop.
