Christian Spirituality Education Re-Imagined: Piloting a Highlander-Inspired Course
Beth Anderson (Graduate Theological Union)

[Notes] I am in the process of piloting a Christian spirituality course based on the transformative educational methodology developed by Myles Horton and the Highlander Research and Education Center. I will explore whether a Highlander-inspired pedagogy offers an effective model for engaging diversity, practicing intercultural dialogue, fostering social change, and integrating theory and practice in the context of teaching Christian spirituality at the seminary level. The principles of teacher research and the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) will guide my analysis of the pilot course.

What’s Your Story? Storytelling and Interreligious Dialogue in Religious Education

Cynthia Stewart (Garrett Evangelical Theological Seminary)

Colloquium. [Notes] College campuses are filled with students who have a story. Religious educators can create a classroom setting where students' voices can be heard and they can share their story. But how can students learn to hear the story of “the other"? To have inter-religious dialogue can be a transformative and liberating process. It can be a practice of freedom where one can think critically and creatively to imagine and discover a new reality as one participates in transforming their world. Storytelling is the means by which transformation and liberation can happen in the classroom setting.

Please note: Tamar Wasoian has withdrawn her presentation "Storied Imagination" from this Colloquium.
