Doctor Of Philosophy In Education

Doctor Of Philosophy In Education

Formed five years ago, the SIG is closely associated with the Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain which is an associate society of BERA. Thus, the task of education is to take an ignorant person away from the world of senses through denying it and to make that person aware of the metaphysical world of ideas. Reflecting what I have learned through out this semester, I have to say it is an interesting process for me. I started out only having one philosophy of education class in my entire education career and we did not focus on philosophers and their writings on education but on pieces of education theories and the epistomology of the theories.

Curriculum is constructed in accordance with the aims of education that are ultimately guided by the objectives of life over which philosophy has great bearing. Having an educational philosophy with its central core steeped in the revealed Word of God, we endeavor to provide a well-rounded education that equips students with a broad understanding of the world God has created. The Society’s international peer-reviewed journal, the Journal of Philosophy of Education, welcomes submissions from scholars in philosophy, education and related fields.

Dewey also emphasized the importance of the student’s own interests in determining appropriate educational activities and ends-in-view; in this respect he is usually seen as a proponent of child-centred” education, though he also stressed the importance of students’ understanding of traditional subject matter. Froebel worked out methods of education in accord with this view of individual development. The analysis accommodates the needs of individuals, society, and time and encompasses the cultural, social, and vocational aims of education.

Essential reading for new and experienced Catholic educators, A Catholic Philosophy of Education demonstrates that Maritain and Lonergan have much to offer in service of an education that is liberating, instructive, illuminating, and integrative. I will make education something fun and interesting for all and help spark a bright future for each and every student I am all about the children and I will make that known in my classroom. The broad-brush definition of this approach is that effective teachers are able to teach more in less time. One of the most beautiful aspects to our society is that there’s more than one answer to every question.

It is been rightly said that without philosophy, education would be a blind effort and without education, philosophy would be a cripple. My teaching philosophy is characterized by service; this service can be seen in three areas of teaching: as a role model, as a mentor, and as a servant leader in the classroom. My undergraduate education informs my convictions about the process of learning; as a student of interdisciplinary studies, I have been trained to approach a question from numerous angles and seek connections between theory and practice even where they seem most unlikely.
