In teaching, we often use the term ‘pedagogy’ to describe our practice–that is, we teach using the art and science behind the method. Scientific methods, which empirically follow trends in behaviour, cause and effect, help guide teachers in the strategies used to plan instruction for specific learners. The art, in my opinion, is in the delivery, and in inspiring  growing minds. I really like this article that talks about pedagogy.
