EDUCATION 01- Introduction to Teaching
The primary goal of this course is to give students interested in pursuing a career in education the foundation with which to do so effectively. In order to become a successful educator and advocate for equal access for all, students must understand the historical and philosophical foundations of education, as well as be able to practice and apply educational research in a classroom setting. Students, in general, can enhance their understanding of the education system as it pertains to their learning and to the development of society, at large. Students will be encouraged to employ critical-thinking skills and engage in academic discourse around current issues in education and to explore various pedagogical modalities.
