The study of Pedagogy within the Theological discipline curriculum helps the learning process and the building of a knowledge map based on the vision of man and his possibility to be educated. This, in turn, will be a useful framework for future educational choices according to the student’s intended pastoral care and professional work. The Didactical aspect of the course should help students to understand how we can facilitate the process of learning and building on knowledge, especially regarding those who work with people, young and old. One of the aims of this course is also to gain the ability to be able to project and plan a curriculum, a syllabus, a lesson and even a meeting, being aware of different learning styles and times.
