    The Pedagogy Philosophy

    Pedagogy is the art and science of teaching, instruction, and training. It is the goal of Pedagogy to offer the most current course content, with the highest possible quality, using a variety of education methods and strategies. Attainment of licensure and formal education is not the end of education. Professionals, both practitioners and educators, are responsible for continually developing their knowledge and skills. Through continuing education and self-directed professional growth, health care providers are better prepared to deliver quality care to their patients.
