Cette recherche-développement collaborative financée par le ministère de la Culture et des Communications et la Fondation de l'UQTR (2020-2023) vise à enrichir culturellement la formation dispensée aux futurs enseignants du préscolaire et du primaire, sur les trois campus de l’UQTR (Trois- Rivières, Drummondville et Lanaudière) par : 1) le recours, dans des cours ciblés à des visites de lieux, l’accueil de professionnels (artistes, écrivains), et l’utilisation de contenus culturels numériques; et 2) par l’initiation à leur exploitation pédagogique en classe. Elle vise également à développer des connaissances relatives à la formation initiale au rôle de passeur culturel. Elle comprend cinq phases se chevauchant, qui consistent principalement à : - mobiliser les acteurs scolaires et culturels concernés et dresser un premier état des lieux ; - co-élaborer, en concertation avec les formateurs participants, un dispositif pour l’exploitation pédagogique de ressources culturelles ciblées ; - favoriser, dans le cadre de cours précis, une meilleure connaissance des ressources ciblés et des approches pédagogiques ; - cerner le potentiel de ces actions ; - diffuser les résultats.
