Nature and Purpose of Education
This course will develop an ‘educational judgement’ in teachers.
Teaching is a complex social and moral activity and student teachers need to be equipped both with educational judgement, in general, and pedagogical methods, in specific, to be effective reflective practitioners.
This course is one of the three fundamental perspectives of Education: philosophical, sociological and psychological. Along with the other perspectives courses, we hope to help you develop ‘educational judgement’. We focus on the content of education, concepts and methods through which you can ask the questions “What to teach?” or “What should everybody know?” We hope you can answer these questions satisfactorily.
