Teaching Well: Insights For Educators in Christian Schools (Edition 2020)Ken Goodlet (Ed), John Collier (Ed)
This publication appears self-consciously and deliberately within the lineage of recent Australian publications in Christian education. For a long time there has been a dearth of such material. This collection seeks to complement fine work done by others in recent years. Our aim has been to bring together the work of some of the major thinkers in Christian education in academic circles in Australia, the UK and North America, with the writings of some leading and experienced Australian practitioners in the field of Christian education. While we have adopted an editorial format and style, we have not sought to conform the various voices to a particular viewpoint, provided they remain robustly evangelical in outlook. The authors therefore speak for themselves, and not always in unison, although certainly with a strong commonality of viewpoint. The book seeks to make a contribution to the field. We hope it will be useful to those who wish to develop their own philosophy of education, and to practitioners in the classroom. Indeed, we would argue that a robust philosophy of Christian education is a precursor to fully fledged practice.
