Pedagogy

About

Find out more information about Pedagogy

Pedagogy can mean the study of the theory and practice of education, but it can also refer to teaching children and young students in a personal, holistic way. In the latter sense, pedagogy might be regarded as the art of bringing up and offering basic education to children. In some European countries, pedagogy is also more related to social work, as studies in pedagogy may include childcare and early-years services, youth work, parenting and family support services, education for young offenders, or play work.

Students in pedagogy learn ways to effectively teach life-preparing knowledge such as social skills and cultural norms to their future young pupils. Modern approaches include the ability to help young learners to create their own knowledge by teaching to learn, helping them develop critical thinking, stimulate creativity, engage in self and peer assessment, and others.

Universities offer undergraduate and graduate degree programmes in pedagogy but, in some cases, Bachelor?s graduates may only practice as educational assistants. Programmes in primary school education may also be considered as part of the pedagogy discipline.

Graduates of pedagogy programmes have found employment in primary or secondary teaching, as curriculum developers, or education policy analysts. A pedagogue can also occupy various kinds of jobs, and ca work in retirement homes, prisons, orphanages, and human resource management.
