Action Learning in a Ministry Context

This unit enables the student to develop elementary competency in a research approach that enhances their ability to reflect, act and learn in their ministry/work context. This is particularly useful when the student wishes to learn on the field in their place of work or ministry.

This unit is generic and can be applied to any discipline or sub discipline. A “research” generic unit can foster independent research and study skills. It can enhance initiative and creativity as students pursue ideas and areas of interest in the subject area. In this way, generic units seek to provide a learning environment which fosters increased independence in learning combined with a higher degree of student-centredness.
