Within an international community of students and expert (guest) lecturers you will extend your theoretical and practical understanding of Christian education. Starting from your own observations of current practices of Christian education, you will be introduced to various views on Christian education worldwide and philosophical perspectives on Christian education today. The so-called practice-oriented approach (inspired by, amongst others, Smith & Smith, 2009; Smith, 2018), will be shown as applicable in various contexts. You will be invited to formulate the vision for your own school or educational organization. This will help you to envision and to enrich future practices.

By studying theory and reflection on their own practices, this course helps participants to enrich their practice (or the practices they serve) with insights into Christian pedagogy.
