Social Media Engagement, Participatory Pedagogy, and Christian Religious Education
Angela Gorrell (Fuller Theological Seminary)

Colloquium. [Paper] This session will report initial findings from a national survey based on 775 congregants living in 37 states, from over 25 denominations and two case studies of US churches (Spring 2015). In this session we will discuss how Christians and churches in the United States are currently using social media, perceptions of these practices, opinions about how social media should be used, as well as implications of this research for Christian formation and education in churches and seminaries. 

Creativity Pedagogy in Higher Education
Johanna Selles (Emmanuel College, University of Toronto)

 [Notes] Imagination and creativity resulting in innovation is generally considered a desirable outcome of higher education. As teachers, we hope that creative pedagogy results in awakened imagination. But does creativity reside in the pedagogy, the program, the learning community, or the institution? This colloquy will explore the capacities associated with creativity and the implications for learning and teaching in the knowledge age.
