This new meeting that convoke to the educators unity, search to promote the
regional integration, the exchange of experiences, and the solidary cooperation,
to join forces and efforts for the sake of making reality the goals agreed in the
regional conferences of education minister celebrated in Havana City in 2002
and in Buenos Aires in 2007.

At the present day stage, characterized by the accelerated development of
science and technology and the paradoxical existence of growing social
inequalities, the eradication of the illiteracy, the universal access to an
education of quality and the education without exclusions, constitute
indispensable premises to reach a sustainable development. It demands the
search of approaches and truly integrative and humanist strategies; useful
instruments to have a better understanding of what is changing and what
should be transformed, facing the Latin American and Caribbean societies
challenges in the XXI century.

Thus we convoke the teachers, professors, educators, researchers and leaders
of the region, to the 2009 Pedagogy Congress. The objective is to exchange
proposals and experiences that propitiate the achievement of the education of
quality for all during a lifetime, by means of the solidary cooperation in the civic
formation, in the respect to the cultural diversity and national identity and in the
formation of generations’ which carry out human values universally accepted.

We hope to count on your attendance.

                              Scientific Programme.

The Scientific Program of the 2009 Pedagogy’s Congress have been designed
with the interest of sharing results of recent investigations, to support the
exchange of experiences in the solution of crucial educational problems, to
examine regional cooperation forms and to look for the roots of an
autochthonous pedagogy that summarize the best of the Latin American and
universal educational thought and that serve as inspiring source and arsenal of
scientific knowledge to the educators, before the challenges of an education for
the sustainable development.

As much the exchange as the projection of new conceptions and strategies
before the main educational challenges of today's world, they will be good to
value the instrumentation of the recommendations carried out in the Final
Declaration of the 2007 Pedagogy Congress, subscribed for more than 5 000
participant delegates. Likewise they will be good to ponder the role that
corresponds to the education and the educators in the human and cultural
development of the childhood, the adolescence and the youth of our people.

Scientific education of quality for all and for all the lifetime that contributes
decisive and equally to the development of the general and integral culture of
our people, it will be the conductive thread on which the debate will turn,
supported in the most advanced contributions and approaches of the sciences
of the education.

The Scientific Program is structured in diverse activities, directed to satisfy
interests and the participant delegates' expectations and referred to the content
of the four main topics convoked by the congress:

   Citizens' integral formation,
   Scientific and developmental education ,
   Educators' formation,
   Sciences of the education.
The content of these central topics is integrated by diverse thematic lines that
will be outlined in the courses, directed for prestigious professors and
researchers, before and during the congress celebration and they will be
debated through the symposia.

The symposia will be organized in conferences, round tables, panels, debate
sessions and presentation of posters; different forms that will allow to integrate
the content of the congress topics beginning with the main scientific results or
theoretical supposition of the selected reports.

The debate sessions are designed to permit the participation of all the authors
of the selected reports, according to the Scientific Program, through the
performance of different roles in the discussion of the thematic lines, without the
traditional presentation of the reports. The sessions of debates, preceded by
courses, conferences, round tables or panels, will be opened by known
specialists in the topic who will use 15 minutes of introduction to propose basis
content to debate. In case a particular thematic line demands it, the Scientific
Committee will decide the oral presentation of reports with duration of 10
minutes for participants, with a final space dedicated to the debate.

The participation solicitude will be sent to the Scientific Committee, which has
the responsibility of informing if it accepts or not the report and in which
modality will be the participation. The decision about the participation modality
(courses, conferences, round table, panel, debate session or poster) it is power
of the Scientific Committee.
The symposia will maintain a functional unit during all their development and
they will close with sessions of conclusions in those that, starting from the
criteria exposed by the authors of the conferences and participant delegates in
all the sessions, will reach general evaluations about the existing tendencies
and to the proposal of actions for the solution of the main educational
problematic presented in relation with the treated topics. The conclusions of
each symposium will be part of the Final Declaration and of the Scientific
Memory of the event.
The Scientific Program will include the forum modality, for opened discussions
about different topics of present time. The central topic of the forums will be
presented by a specialist for whom they will make the interventions of the
stakeholders, without the requirement of presentation of reports.

As it is traditional, the Scientific Program will schedule specialized visits to
educational centers of the different teaching levels and scientific and cultural
institutions of the capital. This modality will open the doors to a direct exchange
with professor, Cuban students and members of the community where they are
inserted. The delegates will register themselves to visit one of the centers in the
moment of their accreditation, without additional cost.

With the presence of the main actors of the Cuban educational work and of
other countries, it will be presented during the Congress, an exhibition
associated in the installation of the Grand Foyer of the Palace of Conventions.
