Full Description

This workshop/course recognises that all learning is formational and that Christian educators will, by design, seek a Christ-shaped formation of heart and mind. It unpacks a number of key ideas from the resource Transformation by Design: Crafting Formational Learning (CEN, 2019). While the big picture remains vital, Christian education is richer when it goes beyond planning curriculum design and the developing of biblical perspective statements. Classroom teaching and learning practices are formational and how the teacher plans and implements learning experiences are crucial in forming  a student’s head, heart, and hands towards responsive discipleship. The course leads teachers to examine and plan crafted formational teaching and learning practices that have the Kingdom transformed student as the goal.
