For college level, I would ask them many questions about their pedagogy, how
they implement it, does it mesh with what the college methodology is, how it
looks in his/her classroom, how they would expect students to modify it, etc. ?
How would they address someone who's pedagogy is the opposite of their own?

I know from experience, that a professor's pedagogy really influences his/her
teaching and how she/he grades. Some teacher's are unable to accept a
different pedagogy from a student and others are much more flexible.

I guess it depends on what this person will be teaching. It it is an Art Ed
methods course or supervising student teachers, then I think the above
questions would be very important. I have had mostly great experiences with
educators at the college level, however, there was one who was unbending in her
pedagogy....it was not even a mainstream belief...it was very frustrating and really
affected my learning in her program...because in her mind...this was the only
way to teach art and all other ways were wrong!
