PSTH 675 - Soul Pedagogy: Teaching for Spiritual Experience

3 credits
We are spirits that matter. (source unknown) Classrooms are a primary context for teaching Christian faith in theological education and the local church. As such, many schools and churches struggle with the predominance of theory over practice even for those aware of the necessity for germane experiences of spirituality in preparation for effective ministry. In this course, we will explore what it means to bring the experience of spirituality into classrooms for the enabling of liberative learning. The aim of the course is to assist teachers and church leaders to become a community of interpretation to expand our collective literacy concerning issues of Christian spirituality and teaching. A primary resource for this course will be spiritual experience. Our primary questions are: How do we nurture teachers who are smart at their own discipline as well as skilled in discernment, intuition, and wisdom? What does it mean to create classrooms that honor the necessity of both interior and exterior life?
