Introducing Aging Content into the Academic Professional Training of Ministerial Students.
Payne, Barbara; Brewer, Earl D. C.
This report discusses the activities of the Gerontology in Theological Education (GITE) project developed at the Gerontology Center of Georgia State University, which was designed to introduce curriculum on aging into theological education. The project was designed to develop and conduct a basic gerontology course sequence and modules for three Atlanta, Georgia, seminaries: the Candler School of Theology, Columbia Theological Seminary, and the Interdenominational Theological Seminary. The project also reviewed and developed library holdings in gerontology and theological disciplines, conducted a national survey of gerontology programs in theological schools, produced a resource guide for developing content on aging in seminary curricula, convened a national conference in innovative gerontology programs in theological education, and produced a newsletter reporting on the project's activities. Four appendixes contain: (1) copies of the newsletter; (2) a questionnaire used to survey local seminary faculty; (3) the questionnaire used in the national survey of theological schools; and (4) a list of seminary library acquisitions.
