Contextualization of Teaching Methodology in Theological Education in Africa.
Bowen, Dorothy N.; Bowen, Earle A., Jr.
Differences between the learning styles of Western and African students are highlighted in this discussion of theological education in African schools. Since many of the teachers in theological institutions are either westerners, or have been educated in the West, Western learning style is the one most rewarded in the classroom, and those students who do best in the schools are those who have a Western learning style. The traditional American learning style is field independent while the African student has a field dependent learning style. Eighteen teaching strategies, specifically designed to address the field dependent learning style are described, with the suggestion that these strategies will be most successful in theological instruction in African countries.
