Journey of Theological Education

Unit code: DE8032L


Multiple journeys converge in contemporary theological education. There is the story of God's people learning and teaching the faith; the story of development of higher education from the cathedral schools of the middle ages; the story of recent developments in regulation and accreditation in higher education that shape and limit the practice of tertiary teaching; the journey of teacher and student through the theological education process; and the story of the institution/s in which they engage. This unit seeks to provide an understanding of these stories as a basis for teaching and for self-understanding by teachers and students.
