Pedagogy can be defined as the understanding of how learning takes place supported by philosophy and practice, essentially pedagogy is the study of the learning process. Leadership is often defined as the act of leading or guiding individuals or groups. If we combine these two, we are offered the notion of pedagogical leadership as a leader or guide of the study of the learning process. It is during this module that the topics and methods used will be offered under a critical approach on how a good learning process guide should and can be developed to help children/teenagers, peer teachers, parents and the community get the best out of theirs.
