MLM465INT Religious Education for a Changing World
@ *Tentatively scheduled in Ferry Beach, ME; class may change to July 22-26 in Chicago
This course is designed to be a comprehensive introduction to ideas and practices that give Unitarian Universalist Religious Education its meaning and purpose for young and old alike. The course explores the rich history of Unitarian Universalist religious education, making note of its philosophy; teaching and learning methods, and the controversies and tensions inherent in this educational enterprise. Students will also explore theories of human, faith and identity development, the role of technology in a faith context, and conduct contextual research in a congregation on how all these theories and models play out. The course is designed with principles of anti-racism, anti-oppression and multicultural teaching and learning in mind, so as to model how this lens applies to religious education.
