EDU3102/3 Principles of Teaching


Welcome to this research guide for Principles of Teaching. This guide will help you find resources that you can use for your course project and CRA paper.

This course presents a Christian philosophy of education based on Luke 2:52: “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.” It shows the privilege and responsibility of the Christian teacher in working with Jesus, the Master Teacher, for the development of the whole person. The first unit deals primarily with the characteristics and needs of students at different ages and how Christian teachers can meet these needs. The second unit looks into the fundamental responsibilities of the teacher and how to fulfill them. The third unit presents a survey of modern educational methods, while the last unit presents the steps in preparing, presenting, and evaluating a lesson.

Global University does not necessarily agree with all the views represented in the resources in this guide. These are provided for the student to contrast and compare with the Biblical text and ideas presented in the Global University IST.
