Sydney College of Divinity will be holding its fifth Learning and Teaching Theology Conference from 23-24 April 2021. The theme for the Conference is Assessment in Theological Education.
The Sydney College of Divinity is inviting scholars, doctoral candidates, and others working in the theological and wider academic community to propose a paper for the conference. We are also asking our faculty to, maybe, use 2020 to do some research in that area, and then present the results of your research at the conference.
Assessment is an element of Theological Education that touches upon each of the seven domains of the Higher Education Standards 2015. Presentations will be organized (approximately) in these domains, providing an opportunity for papers on assessment in relation to any aspect of the student experience of Theological Education: from Learning & Teaching, through Student Support, to Institutional Governance. Papers can be theoretical, or discussions of practical educational experience, or both.
Through this multi-perspectival approach, the conference will explore assessment as an integral part of the learning and teaching environment that shapes future theological graduates.
Presentations will be 20 minutes, with an additional 5 -10 minutes for questions & interaction. A selection of papers from the conference will be subsequently published as the next volume in the SCD Press Theological Education series.
