Enhancing Capacity in a Christian School
This unit enables students to engage with the question of how faith-based schools develop their capacity to fulfil their core mission. The integrating theme of the unit is developing Christian professional learning communities and conversations. Students will draw from the disciplines of education and theology. They may pursue this study from a number of potential perspectives including leadership, curriculum and the teaching of Christian Studies (Religious Education). Key theological emphases are vocation, Christian service and the law/gospel tension. The policy statements and other relevant systemic documents from the student’s own Christian education tradition will be incorporated.
