What is this word from Knowledge Channel’s Learning Effectively through Enhanced Pedagogies (LEEP) training program, seemingly new to our ears, that creates an innovation in education? And how does it make an impact on the lives of teachers and learners?
The word “pedagogy” is derived from a Greek word which means “to lead the child,” says Madeline Marasigan, Knowledge Channel’s educational leadership officer. With this perspective, teachers serve as guides to students as the latter embark on a journey of learning.
“Pedagogy is usually referred to as the art, science and craft of teaching and learning. In LEEP, teachers are exposed to strategies, practices and approaches that have a positive impact on student learning,” Marasigan adds.
