ADMPS 1001 - SOCIAL FOUNDATIONS OF EDUCATION


Minimum Credits: 3
Maximum Credits: 3
Students in the course have the opportunity to develop a foundational understanding of the dynamics of schooling in society by addressing the cultural aspects that underlie society's educational ideas and practices. Through an interdisciplinary approach, readings and activities are designed for school practitioners, or those contemplating careers in education, to engage in the study of those cultural aspects and consequences. The general intent of foundational study is to introduce students to interpretive uses of knowledge Germane to education and to establish a basis for lifelong learning through normative and critical reflection on education within its historical philosophical, cultural and social contexts. Special emphasis is focused on the role of schooling in cultivating the habits necessary for democratic citizenship which include ongoing efforts to secure equitable and just social relations, and to advance the common good.
