MNST 525 Introduction to Christian Education and Formation


Offered in the Easter term of the senior year, this course helps the student to think through a theology of Christian formation and develop a pedagogical philosophy for education and formation in the Anglican tradition. Students will explore faith development, teaching and learning styles, group process, and curricula, while developing a foundation for effective education and formation of adults, children, youth, and families. Particular attention is devoted to Christian catechesis. Each student will submit a term project in an area of interest and prospective ministry, bringing together learning from this class and their wider seminary education.
