This course examines the philosophy and pedagogy of education for organizing the work of the pedagogista in early childhood contexts. Drawing on the thoughts of curriculum theorists, educational philosophers, and Indigenous scholars, students will critically examine a variety of pedagogies within diverse disciplines. The key topics of this course include the ethics and politics in early childhood organizations, teachers' pedagogical dispositions, and reconceptualizing early childhood curriculum and pedagogy. This course suggests that pedagogy is inevitably situated, responsive, interdisciplinary and compositional.
