Faculty of Education and Management
The Faculty of Education (FOE) succeeded the Passley Gardens Teachers College (PGTC) in 1995 with the merger of Passley Gardens Teachers College (PGTC) and the College of Agriculture (COA). The Faculty mandate is to train students in the fields of teaching, business, hospitality and management. FOE gives support to the Faculties of Agriculture (FOA) and Science (FOS) by offering general education and social science courses to all its students. The Faculty caters to the surrounding communities through research and outreach activities.
The Faculty of Education and Management carries out its core functions through two departments:
- Department of Humanities and Aesthetics
- Department of Educational Studies
DEPARTMENT OF HUMANITIES AND AESTHETICS
General Education courses are offered through this department. These courses not only enhance students’ awareness of the world and the people in it but also foster an appreciation of the arts and humanities. Through these courses students learn to think, interpret, make informed decisions and analyze the world.
The primary aim of these courses is to educate, train, and to instill a desire for lifelong learning and service to the society. Specifically, these courses are designed to produce graduates who have developed; an effective command of written and spoken English Language; an informed appreciation of the roles of the Arts and the Humanities; a familiarity with the nature and function of the Social Sciences; an appreciation of the methods of critical inquiry; the ability to deal with moral and ethical issues; a rational basis for selecting a vocation; an understanding of other cultures and milieu; and comprehension of how knowledge is acquired and applied.
DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATIONAL STUDIES
This department offers all the pedagogical courses required to prepare students to become competent, professional and effective teachers at varying levels of the education system. Specifically, the courses offered are designed to help students understand the theories of learning and their relationship to teaching and learning strategies. The student will discover how to instruct and engage pupils through enrichment of the classroom experience. Students will learn how to enhance the curriculum through the use of current instructional and communication technologies in the learning environment.
