The Practice of Lutheran Education
During the holiday period, when regular classes are on semester break, ALC runs intensive workshops in various locations and the units offered at these workshops are also available to audit.
Recently, a group of eight education students (all in their final year of teaching degrees) gathered in Adelaide for a 3-day workshop. The focus of the workshop was The Practice of Lutheran Education, and was led by Mrs Kerrin Huth, Lecturer in Educational Theology, who is based in Brisbane.
As this is a practical, vocational unit which focusses on the teaching of Christian Studies and leading worship in a Lutheran school, students spent time exploring the concepts of Christian education and Christian worship. Students also considered various complexities and issues surrounding teaching Christian Studies and leading school worship, and finished the workshop with more of an understanding of good pedagogy in teaching Christian Studies.
Keep an eye out for these young people as they complete their studies later this year and seek employment in Lutheran schools.
