Teaching in a Lutheran Education Context

Unit code: DR8012L


This unit is located at the intersection between theory and practice in Lutheran education. It considers the classroom as a place of diverse prior understandings, including spirituality and worldview, which need to be considered in the planning of both Christian Studies and worship in a Lutheran or other Christian education setting. It engages students in a close theological and pedagogical study of the Lutheran Education Australia Christian Studies Curriculum Framework (CSCF). It explores questions of best practice and assessment in teaching Christian Studies. Students will also examine Lutheran theology, theory and practice of worship at education sites, considering various complexities and issues surrounding worship in schools and early childhood centres. Students are provided with opportunities to reflect critically on their practice in the light of theological and pedagogical theory.
