Putting the "Why" Back in Education (For Educators)
Tue 18 October 2016, 9:30 AM – 12:30 PM Singapore Standard Time Singapore Time
Putting the "Why" Back in Education (For Educators) is a seminar seeking to re-envision Christian educators for their role in shaping the next generation. Join us as we:
- Revisit the (Christian) roots of education, including its purpose
- Unpack the implications of an education that is disconnected from God, and
- Discover how we can restore meaning and joy to learning, by reconnecting every domain of knowledge (our subjects) back to our Maker.
Who should attend?
If any of the following describe you, then this seminar may provide fresh insight and encouragement for your work in education:
- Are you a teacher/tutor who still feels a lack of purpose in your work, despite your efforts and love for your students?
- Do you ever wonder how you can bring God into the subject you're teaching?
- Are you about to enter into the sphere of education and would like to know how you can start to equip yourself?
- Do you have other Christian educators under your care and would like to know how you can encourage and support their growth?
