Foundations of Dance Pedagogy for All Dance Environments – Online Course
May 22 @ 8:00 am - August 12 @ 11:30 pm
This course provides a survey of educational foundations in dance pedagogy with particular emphasis on social and cultural aspects of pedagogical theory in multiple settings (P-12, private studio, postsecondary education, and dance in community). Study includes the historical context of education and dance education, education theory, the art and science of teaching, the sociology of school organization and culture, and the ethical dimensions of teaching. Applied learning experiences include social immersion projects and reflexive commentaries. Consider taking this course if you are interested in 1) expanding the development of a personal pedagogy and philosophy of teaching appropriate for your dance education setting, and 2) developing theoretical and applied understandings of critical pedagogical concerns in dance education including teaching and learning theory, social and cultural issues in education, diversity, inclusion, and equity, and reflective practice. This course is appropriate for any dance educator, whether new to the field or a seasoned veteran, who is interested in answering the question: “What does it mean to be responsible for someone else’s learning?” NDEO Member Tuition is $520; Non-Member Tuition is $595.
