Effective Pedagogy

Pedagogy. most commonly understood as the approach to teaching, is the theory and practice of learning, and how this process influences, and is influenced by, the social, political and psychological development of learners. Pedagogy, taken as an academic discipline, is the study of how knowledge and skills are imparted in an educational context, and it considers the interactions that take place during learning.

Education has gone through a lot of transformation over the past many decades. It is within the reach of more learners than before. Also, today, formal education is available in many disciplines of learning, for various categories of learners and deliverable through technology enabled channels. This has been possible because the manner of imparting education has also evolved.

Introducing Pedagogy

Importance of Pedagogy

A competent teacher keeps the students motivated, interested and eager to learn. Also, such an instructor employs a judicious blend of skills, abilities and knowledge.

An idea about the students’ learning styles helps instructors adopt the appropriate pedagogical approach.  Also, a pedagogical approach that complements students’ learning styles helps accelerate the learning process. It keeps students motivated and interested in learning.

The field of study also influences the choice of pedagogy. For instance, physics requires a balance of theory and laboratory sessions. Political science, on the other hand, does not need laboratory sessions. Architecture requires field visits, besides theory and laboratory sessions.

Projectors, virtual laboratories, etc. help widen the scope of the teaching-learning process. Such educational resources keep the learning sessions alive and students engaged.

The policies of an education system, curriculum standards, etc. also influence the pedagogical approach. For instance, an exam that tests the ability of a student to memorize and recall facts discourages the instructor to employ a pedagogy that develops higher order thinking.

Teaching is a very noble profession that shapes the character, caliber and future of an individual. If the people remember me as a good teacher, that will be the biggest honor for me.
