“ESSENCE OF THE DISCIPLINE OF EDUCATION”
The discipline of education is of much relevance to any subject, as it gives a meaning for the educational process, that we are undertaking.
It is the basic foundation that students of any discipline be it science, language or arts that one should understand.
It covers a vast field with its varied aspects. Education as a discipline is both “arts” as well as “Science”. It deals with how the concept of education emerged. It comprises of the philosophical principles, psychological evidences and sociological foundations. It derives its theoretical frame work from the various disciplines like philosophy, sociology, psychology and to a certain extent from economics.
As a Science it deals with the “Pedagogy of teaching”. Pedagogy means the “Science of teaching”. As a part of Science, we have the research field, i.e. educational research which comprises of the “Scientific enquiry” about a problem. It is mainly depending upon the psychological testing and evaluation. The research methodologies are truly scientific and the results are analyzed using various statistical measures with reference to quantitative research. We also conduct qualitative research where in we study in depth regarding one area, emerge some salient themes, which are described and discussed elaborately through the various pro’s and con’s.
Education is (misunderstood) misinterpreted as infusing knowledge and a process that is limited to schools, colleges and universities, but education in the true sense is to being out the potential that is inherent in an individual. Education is a continuous, comprehensive, life – long process. Which helps in drawing out the potential inherent in an individual, at the same time filling up the lacunae that may be present in an individual, education is a continuous comprehensive life long process which is achieved through the agencies of formal, informal and non-formal.
