The EFE (Education, Training, Evaluation) team focuses its work on issues related to the educational relationship in all social sectors in which it is practised.
One of the team's areas of focus is professional teaching in education, currently with regard to the following sectors:
- Initial and continuing training
- Health education
- The use of ICT in education
- Road safety education and
- Professional support in human resources.
The research results are put into perspective in relation to the training for the job areas studied.

The work aims to make sense of educational practices and thus the processes of learning, teaching and assessment (in this team, assessment is not limited to compliance control but covers all existing assessment models in education). The aim is to develop a professional culture in these different social worlds. These processes underly the acquisition of knowledge (by the individual being educated) and the engineering (on the side of the educator), as well as their inter-influences.

The ethical issues embedded in the history of the educational relationship make sense both in the context of an anthropology of the subject educated and in the context of learning organisations, which are vectors of collective intelligence.

For each piece of research, the methods used are adapted to the researcher's project and cover the whole spectrum of methods which can be used in education, from the experimental to the clinical. Similarly, all theoretical frameworks can be used provided they are deemed relevant to an understanding of the educational relationship.

This team of EFE research lecturers are united by close and regular association for at least two quadrennia, through joint teaching and research projects. Indeed, both the professional Masters and research Masters' options back up the research team's projects.
