Education & Pedagogy via distance learning
What is comprehension and how does it differ from knowledge? What do we want students to understand and be able to do? What type of knowledge is worth learning permanently? How will we know that students truly understand and can apply knowledge in a meaningful way? How can we design our courses to ensure comprehension? Pedagogy explores these questions and provides practical solutions for teachers. This program looks not only at the "how" of teaching, but also at the "what" and the "why". Pedagogy (literally, the science of teaching) is part of the essential understanding of all teachers: a sound conception of pedagogy is central to all good teaching and education.
