A Subject Area with Many Facets
Pedagogy is primarily concerned with questions around the education and training of children, young people, and increasingly adults. As a discipline, it is closely linked to the subjects of Psychology, Sociology, Neuroscience, and Anthropology. Traditionally, young people and their learning are a main focus of Pedagogy. But if you think that this subject is only concerned with schools and lessons, you should explore the variety of the offers.
Sometimes a distinction is made between Pedagogy as a more practical application of didactic concepts and Educational Science as a more theoretical analytical discipline. The differences are however not always clearly defined.
There are many sub-divisions based on subjects taught, target groups, etc.. Well-known categories include School Pedagogy, Music Pedagogy, and Social Pedagogy. Technology is also playing an increasingly important role in education, for example in e-learning. The most important fundamental concept of educational science is without doubt "Didactics": that is, the science of teaching and learning.
