OVERVIEW

The course is focused on the scientific identity of General Pedagogy and, more specifically, the epistemological statute of this science.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Development of epistemological knowledges relating to theoretical and praxic paradigms of general pedagogy, considered within the relationships between pedagogical sciences and general didactics. The objectives of the course concern both the study of the pedagogical practices involved in self-formational-educational processes and theories in support of teaching-learning relationships in the didactic environment. They will therefore investigate: a) the epistemological structure of general pedagogy; b) its practical implications in the school context of different order and level; c) the objects of this science ‒ such as self-formation, education and cultural instruction, related to teaching and learning; d) pedagogical professions (in particular, the teacher of the kindergarten and the teacher of the primary school); e) the relation between pedagogy and didactics.
