A course for teachers who are committed to transforming their classroom practice to serve the purposes of God in the lives of their students. A course with personal impact.
In this course we focus on the teachers, their teaching skills and their roles in the learning process of children. We focus on the everyday experience: the lessons of yesterday and tomorrow. These will be discussed in the context of the higher purpose of Christian education derived from Scripture.
This training contributes to the personal development of teachers and school leaders concerning collaboration with parents. Parent involvement is used to create more opportunities to help children learn better and to become empowered by learning. Teachers learn how to communicate effectively with parents and how to plan and carry out different types of parent involvement.
The aim of the Master’s programme is to deepen the knowledge and skills of experienced teachers who could become teacher leaders, principals and school leaders in Christian schools and for people working in educational aid organisations.
