Educational Philosophy: Progressivism
Educational Theory: Cognitivism
Dr. R. S. Katete follows the progressivism educational philosophy, where the emphasis is placed on student-centred learning, experiential learning, and the development of critical thinking. Students are encouraged to think critically and creatively.
Dewey (1963), who is often referred to as the “father of progressive education,” believed that all aspects of study need to be linked to materials based on students' every- day life-experiences.
Thus, in my teaching and research, students are provided with real-world experiences that are meaningful and relevant to them rather than rigid subject-matter content.
