This volume brings together a number of papers presented at the international conference on “Specific Methodologies in Educational Alternatives” held in June 2016, at the Bistriţa University Extension of the Educational Sciences Department of Babeş-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca, Romania. The event served to promote the most recent theoretical and practical findings related to educational alternatives, and attracted the attendance of over 250 theorists and experts in the field. The conference represented a significant opportunity to know and develop this field of study, based on research and examples of good practice. The contributions here specifically explore the six educational alternatives that exist in Romania, namely Step by Step, Waldorf, Freinet, Curative Pedagogy, Montessori and the Jenaplan.
