Pedagogy (also paedogogy, sometimes spelt pædogogy) is "the method and practice of teaching, especially as an academic subject or theoretical concept."[1]

Although the ped- root literally refers to teaching children, it generally means teaching in general including andragogy, with the specific term child pedagogy being used for children.

The adjective for pedagogy is pedagogical, less commonly pedagogic.[2]
