Zsupan-Jerome, Daniella – Religious Education, 2017
Faith-based engagement with digital culture calls communities of faith beyond an instrumental use of apps, gadgets, and platforms.

Striepe, Michelle; Clarke, Simon; O'Donoghue, Thomas – Issues in Educational Research, 2014
Studies which examine how educational leadership in faith-based schools is understood and practised are few and far between in the research literature.

Ha, Tung-Chiew – Religious Education, 2014
The Gospel of John teaches through telling the story of Jesus in light of the familiar Hebrew faith stories. It is an interpretive task that presents Jesus to his audience and teaches them adequate faith. John the Teacher skillfully uses narrative skills to create the familiar-strange effect in his storytelling. Each story is followed by a…

Without intervention, teachers' beliefs about teaching--shaped by early classroom…
