The LIRDEF develops research activities in the fields of education and training around 3 axes:
- Education, politics, societies ;
- Knowledge-Practice-Didactics ;
- Work, Training, Professionalities.
These activities are more particularly centred on teaching-learning processes, the activity of actors in a professional context, the processes of socialisation, professionalisation and identity construction as well as "education for", the history of teaching, or the engineering of situations with educational aims.
LIRDEF is currently involved in several research projects funded at national or international level.
LIRDEF is a support laboratory for the ACEF (Analyses et Conception en Education et Formation, UPVM, UM), DDS (Didactique Des Sciences, UM, Univ. Lyon 1, ENS Lyon) and the 4 mentions of the MEEF (Métiers de l'Enseignement, de l'Éducation et de la Formation, UM) master's degrees and a scientific partner for the Centre d'Etudes, de Documentation et de Recherches en Histoire de l'Education of the Montpellier Faculty of Education.
