S5 Ep3 Didactics

Educational instruction has a lot more under the surface than giving class assignments and final exams. In this episode we try to understand how Didactics informs teaching approaches, and what makes didactics different from pedagogy. Niklas shares his knowledge and experience in didactics, while Seth and Clay talk about pedagogy's relationship to didactics.

If you are interested in teaching theories and learning objectives, or you are a student who simply wants to understand why teachers might teach in certain ways, this is the episode for you.


Clay references this website post on Didactics vs. Pedagogy: https://reflectiveteachingjournal.com/difference-between-didactics-and-pedagogy/
