Actes du XVIème Colloque International du CIEC

Ce livre comprend une trentaine d’articles de chercheurs et créolistes du monde entier, qui ont contribué au 16e colloque international des études créoles tenu aux Seychelles en 2018. Le contenu aborde les différentes facettes du développement des communautés créoles, notamment dans le contexte de l’éducation et culture. Ces communautés comprennent les zones créoles de l’océan Indien, des Caraïbes et des Amériques. D’un point de vue holistique, bien qu’il s’agisse d’un produit académique, ce livre représente l’expérience de vie réelle des communautés créoles au 21ème siècle. La plupart des articles ont été rédigés par des universitaires, des éducateurs, des artistes et des praticiens de la culture qui sont membres de ces communautés et ont donc une expérience directe des réalisations des peuples créoles et des défis auxquels ils sont confrontés en tant que communautés périphériques dans un monde globalisé.

Understanding Education in the Seychelles

This edited collection provides unprecedented insights into current issues in education in the Seychelles. Focus on education in this small island nation has been a priority ever since independence in 1976, and as a nation Seychellois can proudly boast many impressive achievements in this field. For example, free and compulsory education from the age of six to sixteen, accessible for all, has led to literacy rates of 96 per cent, which are the highest in the region. With attainment rates close to 100 per cent, the Seychelles was the first African nation to fully achieve the UNESCO Education for All goals in 2014. Seychelles also has a free upper secondary school system attended by a large proportion of our youth, and to further the opportunities for local educational progression, the University of Seychelles was established in 2009. This publication marks yet another major accomplishment in the field of education. It is the result of the concerted efforts of the students of the first cohort of the Master’s in Educational Leadership offered at the University of Seychelles. Most of these students are actively working in the field, as school leaders and teachers, and their research thus represents a unique inside perspective into the current Seychelles educational ecology. This publication is also the first produced under the Education and Socio-Economic Research Institute (ESERI), whose launch further secures future research for progressive social, economic and educational transformations. We thus hope that this book will be used as an important work of reference when future pathways for educational development and improvement are laid down.
