EDUC 1002 - Pioneers and Philosophies of Education♦


(5 cr.) Current perspectives on education and methods of teaching are rooted in history and philosophy as far back as the ancient Greeks. In this course, education professionals explore thinkers, philosophies, and educational programs that have influenced current ideas about effective practices in teaching, including tapping into different forms of intelligence and applying new methods for assessment. Education professionals critically examine educational philosophies and methods in light of current social, political, and economic forces impacting children, families, and the field. Through coursework and discussions, education professionals begin to develop a reasoned, coherent personal philosophy of education as a basis for ethical and professional practice and decision making.
