Course unit content

Course title: The pedagogic perspective.

The course will try to make students familiar with the pedagogical glance, i.e., to bring about pedagogical instruments and perspectives in reflecting on the contexts and situations that the student will meet as a professional.
After an introduction about some methods and concepts of general pedagogy and their historical development, the course will examine a series of texts and materials which will develop the comprehension of the peculiar pedagogical approach to different social and community contexts.
