A Call to Queer Solidarity: A Reflection by CLGS's Transgender Roundtable Coordinator, Rev. Jakob Hero-Shaw
Home » TEL Course: Introduction to Christian Education » TEL Course: Introduction to Christian Education

Introduction to Christian Education, with Dr. Michael Campos, explores key concepts that undergird the work of learning and teaching: CURRICULUM, KERYGMA, and CATECHESIS. We will study how Christian education interacts with culture, drawing from our personal stories as the starting point of collective meaning-making. The following essential questions will guide our conversations:

  • What is pedagogy, broadly defined? 
  • What are prevailing cultural assumptions around “good teaching/learning”? 
  • How do we negotiate the tension between teaching for content and teaching as process? 
  • What is the role of “our story”—social biography—in Christian education? 
  • How can we re-imagine approaches to Christian education that makes sense to our communities
