Are you interested in learning more about Christian education and what it means to be a Christian teacher? Are you aware of your own views on education?
Update March 2021:
Since 2010 we offer an international programme at our institute, the International Class. Since then every year we invited students from different cultural backgrounds and views on education to join our local students in discussing education and teaching. Gouda was our location. At the moment it is difficult to know if traveling is possible in August/September, therefore we made the decision to offer an online version of this his programme.
We welcome undergraduate students and graduates from different cultural backgrounds and views on education to join our local students in discussing education and teaching. Dialogue like this will help you clarify your own ideas on education and will help you to broaden your perspective on teaching. After three months you will be able to return home with a deeper insight into your own teaching practice.
The International Class consists of a group of students from Driestar Christian University and students from countries all over the world who applied for this course. The mixture of different backgrounds makes for a situation in which all students can learn from each other.
It is meant to be an international group and during the lectures, the focus is on Christian education. The theme is elaborated in modules covering the history of Christian educational thinking in an international perspective, the biblical world view and Christian spirituality and the practice of Christian teaching in the classroom.
