Teaching Methodology and Theological Education: A Prospectus.
Kerr, Hugh T.
A research project was designed to explore the present situation and future needs of teaching methodology within the graduate-professional context of theological education. Although there has been a virtual revolution in the development of new techniques of instruction at the university level in recent years, there has been a lack of constructive discussion about graduate-professional teaching. Related to innovative educational experiments, the current student rebellion against all kinds of establishments and their involvement in radical social movements imply an urgent need for total academic restructuring. Two current student trends relate directly to the purposes of theological education - the demand to redefine the educational process as guided self-discovery, and the concern to extend the campus to include its total environment. For the project, a selected number of experimental teaching programs in various kinds of schools and research centers were evaluated. The form of this prospectus consists of a series of theses followed by a random sampling of the kinds of sources which seem relevant. It is contemplated that a full report with recommendations would issue from this research. It seems inevitable that seminaries and divinity schools will require radical restructuring. (Author/JS)
