The historical roots of education may be found in several disciplines: philosophy, the history of ideas, psychology and sociology. What characterise the different educational disiplines and the relation between them? Focus will be on a basic understanding of the concepts education, didactics, formation, socialisation and special needs education. What does it mean that education is a
scientific subject, and what area of research is relevant for a pedagogue to immerse oneself in?
What area of application do we find for the education in to day's society, in school and in the working life? Students will acquire didactic competency, and emphasis is therefore placed on
students developing an understanding of how to plan, organize and assess teaching and training.
