Topic: Critical thinking and the Biblical Studies classroom
Good twenty first century educational practice requires the 4C’s: collaboration, creativity, critical thinking and communication. How confident or cautious are we as Biblical Studies teachers in the classroom?
This seminar will promote the value of embracing critical thinking in the teaching of Biblical Studies and help teachers to acquire the critical thinking skills they need to articulate and reflect on their religious beliefs.
