Formerly titled Religious Education for a Changing World. This course is designed to be a comprehensive introduction to ideas and practices that give Unitarian Universalist Religious Education its meaning and purpose throughout our lifetimes. We will explore our rich history of religious education and make note of how formative people shaped its philosophy; experience firsthand a variety of teaching strategies; explore theories of human, faith and identity development; and investigate through contextual research in a congregation how 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.
