Reframing Knowing, Being, and Doing in the Seminary Classroom
Cahalan, Kathleen A.
Teaching Theology & Religion, v14 n4 p343-353 Oct 2011
Seminary education requires that students learn a complex body of theological knowledge, engage in the practices of ministry, and develop as persons of faith and vocation. Utilizing the six aspects of significant learning experiences defined by L. Dee Fink--foundational knowledge, application, integration, the human dimension, caring, and learning how to learn--the author explores teaching practices that reframe knowing, doing, and being in seminary classrooms.
