PACE 300 - Principles of Education

FC CNDP, DDHU
4 credits
Students will explore the complex world of education from historical, philosophical, sociological and political perspectives and assumptions, while also investigating why different models of schools function as they do. Educational theory, policy, and curriculum will be addressed, specifically current issues and research dealing with students’ readiness to learn, assessment and evaluation, funding, teacher assessment, and educational standards. Traditional and alternative pedagogies, their impact on teaching-learning partnerships, and models for teacher reflective praxis will be included in course readings, discussions, and written reflections. While the course focuses on the American educational system at large, students will practice applying key educational concepts to subject areas of their own interest. Note: Previously Offered as MUED 519 - replaced with PACE 300 course.
