Vocational Pedagogy


In a digital, globalised, increasingly complex world, knowledge is changing rapidly – new things are being added, a great deal appears to have long since become obsolete. Life-long learning, in everyday life and at work, is becoming a must for all of us. Therefore, professionals trained in education, such as you, are needed to competently train adults in companies and organisations. With an IU distance learning degree in Pedagogy for Education, Counselling and Human Resources Development, you will acquire the necessary psychological, sociological, business and pedagogical know-how to help others fill their knowledge gaps.
