Pre-Event: Educational Technology Through the Church Year

How can educational technologies help us deepen faith and create space for the in-breaking of the Holy Spirit? Which technologies should we use? How do we integrate them into our ongoing ministries? How do we decide between distance, hybrid and in-person teaching? Let’s explore these questions, a host of educational technologies, and sharpen our skills with a hands-on project. Choose a day or season in the liturgical year and bring an idea for creating an experience to enrich faith. We’ll spend the morning learning and practicing educational technologies as you work on your own project. A two-hour break mid-day will allow time for lunch, continued personal work on your idea, and coaching. We’ll finish out the afternoon by sharing our work and learning from one another. Bring your computer, your ideas, and your sense of possibility and let’s see what we can create together.
This Pre-event is underwritten by the Center for Excellence in Christian Education at Union Presbyterian Seminary.
