Democratic Values, Christian Perspectives and Education

— EDUC 501 (3)

The first part of the course (offered during the summer session) serves as an introduction to the principles and beliefs essential to a Christian world view as they relate to educational theory and practice. The second part (offered at the end of the program) serves as an opportunity for Teacher Candidates to revisit these principles and beliefs. The exploration of the values of critical democracy, diversity, equity, and social justice will establish the framework for the development of an educational praxis. This critical-reflective practice will be informed by the Christian world view that asserts the existence of God as a loving creator who has ordered the universe and fashioned humanity in God's own image that all persons might love Him and all as themselves.
