Theological Education In Australia: The Past And Present As Possible Indicators Of Future Trends, Robert K. Mciver Dec 2018

Theological Education In Australia: The Past And Present As Possible Indicators Of Future Trends, Robert K. Mciver

Theology Papers and Journal Articles

Theological Education in Australia has been shaped by significant influences, many of which are unique to Australia. For most of its history, theological education has been excluded from the universities, and hence is still today largely found in small institutions with strong denominational ties. The challenges of quality assurance, together with the increasing burden of government and church accreditation led to the formation of several multi-college providers, such as the Australian College of Theology (1891), the Melbourne College of Divinity (1910; now the University of Divinity), and the Sydney College of Theology (1983). Several government initiatives in tertiary education have ...

Lost Classroom, Lost Community: Catholic Schools’ Importance In Urban America By Margaret F. Brinig And Nicole Stelle Garnett. Chicago: University Of Chicago Press, 2014. 202 Pp., $48.00., Ann Marie Ryan

Education: School of Education Faculty Publications and Other Works

In Lost Classroom, Lost Community: Catholic Schools’ Importance in Urban America, Margaret F. Brinig and Nicole Stelle Garnett set out to understand how the precipitous loss of urban Catholic schools over the past several decades has affected the social order and social cohesion of the neighborhoods in which these schools once served as community anchors. Fittingly, they begin their exploration with a history of Catholic schools in the United States, from their fledgling and contested beginnings in the nineteenth century to their height in the mid- to late twentieth century. In this condensed but informative historical account, Brinig and Garnett ...


A Case Study Of Professional Development Activities That Foster A Biblical Worldview In K-8 Christian School Teachers, Tanya R. Mooney Nov 2018

A Case Study Of Professional Development Activities That Foster A Biblical Worldview In K-8 Christian School Teachers, Tanya R. Mooney

Doctoral Dissertations and Projects

The purpose of this collective case study was to explore professional development (PD) activities that fostered a biblical worldview (BW) in K-8 Christian school teachers. The theory guiding this study was Fowler’s (1995) faith development theory (FDT), as this theory provided an understanding of the transformational process which Christian teachers undergo as faith develops throughout their lives. BW development compared to faith development because of the transformation that occurred in pedagogical practices. Twelve K-8 Christian school teachers in Arizona were selected for this study using criterion sampling. Each participant was a K-8 Christian school educator, was a born-again believer ...


Christian High School Science Teachers' Perspective Transformation: The Journey From Evolution To Creation, Paul Leslie Thorpe Nov 2018

Christian High School Science Teachers' Perspective Transformation: The Journey From Evolution To Creation, Paul Leslie Thorpe

Doctoral Dissertations and Projects

The purpose of this hermeneutical phenomenology study was to explore and describe the perspective transformations of 11 science instructors teaching at Christian high schools. These science teachers previously believed the evolutionary paradigm of origins. However, they have all experienced a transformation and now hold a young-earth creation perspective and believe the literal six-day creation event in the book of Genesis is accurate and true. Transformation of perspective regarding origins is defined as a phenomenon of transformative faith accompanied by assimilation and accommodation of new knowledge as seen through the lens of Jack Mezirow’s (1991) transformative adult learning theory, and ...

Bibles, Ballots, And Bills: Political Resistance To Parochial Education In 1870s Ohio, James Gutowski Oct 2018

Bibles, Ballots, And Bills: Political Resistance To Parochial Education In 1870s Ohio, James Gutowski

2018 Faculty Bibliography

The post-Civil War era opened a new chapter in the development of Catholic education in the United States. Seeking ways to forge stronger bonds of national unity, the Republican Party placed a high priority on public education as a means of forging a common American culture. Subsequently, members of the party viewed the growing number of Catholic schools, which offered an alternative to the public system, as a threat. The disproportionate growth of the Catholic population in Ohio alarmed the Republican Party, then holding many local and statewide offices. These officials sought to create legal and legislative barriers to hinder ...
