I 5998  Educating for Witness: Methods Seminar
The focus for this course is to explore how internal and external forces of context determine the content, resources, and methods of what we teach in religious education and how those forces shape the role of the teacher, the role of the student, the relationship between teacher and student. It is being conducted as a research seminar. Participants are expected to demonstrate ongoing research with the topics, bringing such research to class sessions to share with other participants. The course covers issues in contextualization, mapping religious education and curriculum theorists, critical pedagogy, and critical theory.
