Course Content (Syllabus)
Pedagogical Psychology applies psychological methods to the study of learning, teaching, and behavior management. During the courses, students will be trained in theories of self-regulation, self-perception and motivation that record and explain behaviors. Students will be informed about effective ways to manage emotions, as well as the importance of family and peers in the overall development of their personality. The above knowledge will be combined with the teaching and principles of Orthodox Christian education, drawing evidence from the Church Fathers and contemporary Christian Pedagogical scientists.
