What is Pedagogy?

According to the Webster Dictionary, “Pedagogy is the art, science, or profession of teaching”.  Therefore, pedagogy is the teaching and classroom management strategies teachers use, the way in which the classroom is run, and how the students interact with one another in the classroom.  One’s pedagogy isn’t just what is taught through text books and tests, but also how it is being taught.  How engaged and interactive the students are depends on one’s pedagogy.
