The aim of these newsletters has been to promote excellence in theological learning and teaching. The newsletter Connecting got things off to a brief start in 2009. In 2010, the Teaching and Learning Update appeared, to run for nine issues that year. The following year saw the much more substantial SCD Distance and e-Learning News. For about two and a half years and eighteen issues, this newsletter addressed online learning, and provided both theoretical and practical help for theological educators moving their courses online – at that stage, many for the first time. Its focus on the practice of theological education was then picked up by Transforming Teaching in 2013-2014.
