Theological Foundations for Educators

Code: CT9004L
Points: 24
Study mode: Online (workshops available)

The unit introduces students to theology for educators, providing a theological foundation for teachers and leaders in Lutheran and other Christian schools. While the unit sits within the discipline of systematic theology, it challenges students to demonstrate theological knowledge, understanding and expertise through theological reflection on educational issues. Students will engage with areas of theology which are especially foundational for the Christian education context. Attention will be given to theology linked to each of the three articles of the Apostles' Creed. The theological focus in the unit is Lutheran with a Christological emphasis, and using an approach which invites students to consider other theological perspectives in the light of a Lutheran position.
