eD 13 What are Universities Good For?


Education seems to be changing with alarming speed. How can we keep up with what is happening and why—and reflect on this from a Christian perspective?

This helpful study traces the key moments in thinking about education in government and church, and draws on key thinkers—David Ford, Rowan Williams and Mike Higton—to highlight the central challenges we are facing.

Potential audience:

Higher education staff, education policy makers, some DBE members and Diocesan Education Officers (if they have an HEI in their diocese).
