This is a workshop exploring the foundations of Christian education. It is designed to be accessible by any member of the school community and many schools include all staff when it is delivered. It covers important questions like; What is Christian education? What is the purpose of Christian schooling? Where did Christian education come from?

The workshop includes historical, theological, and philosophical elements and gives participants an understanding of the development of Christian schooling in Australia; biblical basis, and worldview implications. The learning experience includes presentation, collaboration, video, reflection, and other media. This course would be a beneficial addition to any new staff induction program. For many, this course provides a new perspective on education and for others it is like an old friend that it is really good to catch up with from time to time.

“Outstanding and inspiring. The presenter unpacked for us how Christian teachers have a unique opportunity to equip the kids we teach with a Christian worldview. The day was fun and engaging. I can’t wait to put the things I learnt today into practice.” Craig

Teaching Christianly will include pedagogy that is biblically informed and shaped. The methods and techniques we use to teach our students in Christian schools will be drawing them towards or away from the gospel.
