Thousands of Christian educators exist. But how does the fact that they are Christians, or even certain kinds of Christians, shape their teaching?
On Thursday, 16 July 2020 at 1400 GMT, Dr. Perry Glanzer, Professor of Educational Foundations and a Resident Scholar with Baylor Institute for Studies of Religion, answers these questions by first exploring the actual responses of Christian professors to questions asking how their faith tradition informs their teaching.
By drawing upon a survey of over 2300 Christian professors, Dr. Glanzer illuminates the wide range of wisdom that contemporary professor’s offer about how they go about this endeavor. The second part of the webinar explores the question of how knowing these different approaches can help faculty develop their own approach to Christian teaching.
See Dr. Glanzer’s recent book, The Outrageous Idea of Christian Teaching (OUP, 2019) for a detailed introduction to the webinar.
