Pedagogical Frameworks

Here is a useful outline of Pedagogical Frameworks

Pedagogical Frameworks: “”

However, I think their illustrative diagram (Fig 2.1 Pedagogical framework, educational setting, organisational context) is upside down!

For me the foundation of a pedagogical framework starts with your Philosophy (World view or epistemology), built upon this is a corresponding “High level Pedagogy” (e.g. Social Constructivism), then comes pedagogical strategies and pedagogical tactics for implementation.
