The Tutorial Education Program (PET) is financed by Ministry of Education’s Department of Higher Education (SESu) with the objective of promoting the broad and high quality training of the undergraduate students who are part of it in order to encourage the improvement of undergraduate education, aiming to qualify its participants for future academic and/or professional performance.
To this end, PET members develop, individually and collectively, a set of study, research and scientific activities. The commitment to such activities is financed by receiving a monthly scholarship (currently R$ 400.00).
The PET/IRI, entitled 'GLOBAL BRAZIL’: CHALLENGES TO BRAZILIAN INTERNATIONAL INSERTION IN A CHANGING WORLD, aims to train students with the critical aptitude to analyze issues and problems central to Brazil's international insertion process. It aims to contribute to the implementation and consolidation of new teaching and learning methods linked to IRI’s curriculum development program. Teaching, research and extension activities will be developed in the following priority areas: a) Institutions and Governance – Brazilian participation in the new architecture of the international system; b) Development and Cooperation – the Brazilian international development agenda, especially concerning South-South cooperation strategies c) Platform on Social Rights and Issues – emphasis on the Brazilian position on Human Rights, Humanitarian Law and migration issues.
The pedagogical training of scholarship holders is structured around basic training activities, conducting research, teaching assistances, orientation groups, activities with specialists, and dissemination of products developed by the scholarship holders. It’s expected that the group will articulate a space for collective production, ensuring training that guarantees better use of the curriculum students, in addition to promoting the development of resources and products related to central themes of the Brazilian international agenda for public consultation.
