More on distant theological education

/ 8 June 2008

It used to be that using digital tech tools in combination with theological education was frowned on, but there has been a lot of movement in the last few years as more and more people have begun to see that digital tech permeates many cultures and therefore the question is not “if” but “when” and “how” and “why” to engage it theologically and pedagogically. The TheologianWithoutBorders blog (an interesting name, don’t you think?) has been doing a series of posts on creative education, and this one looks at a variety of distance-oriented programs. I also found the discussion of what are called “angel professors” — teachers who spend the breaks of their “regular” job teaching in international contexts — interesting.
