Theological Foundations for Educators

Unit code: CT9004L

Description

The unit introduces students to theology for educators, providing a theological foundation for teachers and leaders in Lutheran and other Christian schools. While the unit sits within the discipline of theology, it challenges students to demonstrate theological knowledge, understanding and expertise through reflection on educational issues. Students will study broad topic areas, including: the nature and sources of theology; the nature of God as creator, redeemer, and sanctifier; the means of salvation; new life in Christ; Church and Ministry; Christian hope. The theological focus in the unit is Lutheran, but in a way which invites students to consider other perspectives in the light of a Lutheran position.
