A selection will be made from the writings of two or three of these philosophers (e.g. Plato, Aristotle, Locke, Rousseau, Kant, Dewey). Particular attention will be given to anthropological and epistemological convictions and the implications of these for an understanding of learning and the conception of an educated person. Participants will be able to focus on the connections between the selected authors' educational thought and their broader philosophical concerns or on the influence and implications of their writings for the current practice of education. They will be encouraged to discern insights and distortions in the light of a biblically informed view of the person as they develop further their own perspective on education.

School-Parish-Family: Revitalizing the educational triad

Offered in Winter 2010  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

Vital to Catholic education are the positive, constructive relationships between the parish, the home, and the school. The course investigates those relationships, progressing through three modules. The first provides an in-depth review of normative pastoral and theological literature on the significance of the collaboration between parish, home, and school for fulfilling the mission of Christian education. A second module examines some of the societal and cultural shifts that contribute to making the triad less effective or even dysfunctional and require a re-thinking of what it means. The final module identifies and explores areas, which serve as promising starting points for revitalization: sacramental preparation and continuing faith formation of teachers. Teaching Method: Lectures Means of Evaluation: Preparation and participation (10%) Interview and analysis (30%) Seminar leadership (30%) Pastoral theological project (30%)
