Center for Pedagogy
Center for Pedagogy is an interdisciplinary department
within the Richard W. Riley College of Education.
The Center was formed in 1995 with three main
purposes: a) to coordinate all aspects of the undergraduate
and graduate core curricula; b) to foster positive
relationships between the University and selected public
schools; and c) to ensure that the Conceptual Frameworks for
the Teacher Education Program are evidenced in courses and
are associated with the undergraduate and graduate cores.
concept of the Center is based on the premise that the
education of a teacher is the responsibility of four groups:
the Richard W. Riley College of Education, the College of
Arts and Sciences, the College of Visual and Performing
Arts, and Professional Development Schools.
Each plays a key role in providing a total and
well-integrated educational experience for teachers and in
investigating and promoting the social, moral, and political
implications of teaching in a democracy.
