Visiting Scholar: meet Josemar De Campos Maciel

One of the most important missions of the Erasmus Mundus programs, and in particular of the STeDe program, is the constant academic and cultural exchange. The circulation of people and ideas among the different partners of the program is at the basis of a productive educational offer.
For this reason, we are proud to have in Padova as a visiting professor for the AY 2017-2018, professor Josemar De Campos Maciel, from the Universidade Católica Dom Bosco in Campogrande (Brasil). Professor Josemar’s course is “How to enhance group interaction and intercultural learning”, and is aimed to foster a specific sensitivity to understand current challenges related to sustainable development, with special attention to “other” views. Indeed, professor De Campos Maciel’s main research interest lays in the concept of development in thoughts systems different from the occidental one.
