VEIGA, Ilma Passos Alencastro. Political-pedagogic innovations and project: an emancipating or regulatory relationship?. Cad. CEDES [online]. 2003, vol.23, n.61, pp. 267-281. ISSN 1678-7110. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-32622003006100002.
The present paper discusses the meaning of innovations and a political-pedagogic project under two viewpoints: as a regulatory action or technique and as an emancipating or edification action. The regulatory innovation means to assume the political-pedagogic project as a set of activities that will generate a product: a ready, finished document. In this case, the process of collective production is left out. The innovation of a regulatory matrix denies the diversity of interests and actors involved. From the emancipating standpoint, the innovation and the political-pedagogic project are articulated to integrate the process together with the product, because the final result is not only a consolidated process of methodological innovation, in the core of a project built, executed and assessed collectively, but an innovative product that will also provoke epistemological ruptures.
