eD 17 What Motivates Christian Educational Practitioners?: Theology as a School Resource


Teachers are now subject to numerous measures of performance, both individually and collectively. But for the Christian teacher, what are the theological concerns which provide motivation for teaching?

This series of reflections arose from a retreat with Christian teachers. It offers a way of connecting classical themes in Christian theology with the practice of teaching in the current context, generating both affirmation and critique.
