The Postgraduate Studies Programme in "Children’s Book and Educational Material" inaugurated its operation initially as a Cross – Departmental Postgraduate Studies Programme with the same title in the academic year 1998 – 1999.
WHO WE ARE
The perennial experience of the implementation of the Cross – Departmental Postgraduate Studies Programme in "Children’s Book and Educational Material" (from 1998 – 1999), on both a level of study content, teaching needs coverage and a level of organization and operation, led us to the conclusion that the Programme could operate more effectively, as far as its academic dimension (teaching – research) is concerned as well as its managerial and administrative aspects, if it became Departmental and not Cross – Departmental. Our perennial experience dictated the reform of the Programme, on both a level of study content and a level of its structure and organization, so as to be able to turn the experience and knowledge acquired to advantage, to escape malfunctions encountered and proceed with the development and evolution of the field of education and research in the sector of "Children’s Book and Educational Material", which are defined through the convergence and interaction of multiple different subjects and scientific and research approaches, so that the issues of this cross - scientific negotiation will be able to find application on both the pedagogical practice as well as the production of educational material. Thus, we were led to a re-orientation of the nature (study content) and the operational and administrational structure of the Programme making it a Departmental Postgraduate Studies Programme of the Department of Sciences of Pre-School Education and Educational Design, with the same title.
The Postgraduate Studies Programme in "Children’s Book and Educational Material" inaugurates its autonomous operation as a Postgraduate Studies Programme of the Department of Sciences of Pre-School Education and Educational Design of the Faculty of Humanities of the University of the Aegean in Rhodes, with a new study content and operational design in the academic year 2007 - 2008 (National Gazette 52101/B7/05.06.2007).
The Postgraduate Studies Programme, after external evaluation, is updated in the academic year 2014 - 2015 (National Gazette 80546/B7/04.06.2014).
The Postgraduate Studies Programme, is updated in the academic year 2018 - 2019 (National Gazette 3245/08.08.2018, τ.Β’.).
