Term2.png PEDAGOGY
Didactic method or instructional technique that describes the role of the trainer as an authority figure. It refers to the trainer’s command of the subject matter knowledge, ability to interpret learner responses, and other personal competencies. This model assigns to the trainer full responsibility for making all decisions about the learning objectives, how, and when to learn. It is a trainer-directed education, leaving to the learner the role of following his or her instructions. Pedagogy is also used to refer to moral and ethical aspects of the trainer’s work with learners. The opposite of pedagogy is andragogy [1]
