Pedagogy

Pedagogy refers to the strategies or styles of instruction and learning processes; the study of being a teacher. Pedagogy is the observable act of teaching and modeling values and attitudes that embodies educational theories, values, evidence, and justifications. For example, a child-friendly pedagogy using a rights-based curriculum aims at fostering not only core competencies but citizenship, non-discrimination, peace, and a participatory and enabling environment for learners to voice their own ideas and learn to listen to and respect different views.
