Four online learning workshops are available to enhance your Christian teaching, on your whether you teach in a public or independent school. Learn more on Biblical integration, spiritual formation, the role of a Christian teacher, as well as discipline and classroom management.

Biblical integration

Who is winning the battle for our children’s minds hearts? Christian teachers should know what they believe and why and be able to integrate a Biblical worldview into their current teaching curriculum. The Biblical integration workshop briefly discusses various common worldviews competing with a Biblical worldview, and leads the teacher to planning curricular activities that help the student think through subject matter and skill development in such a way as to develop the habit of connecting and distinguishing all knowledge to their Biblical worldview, the integrating core out of which an integrated Christian will think and act.

Spiritual formation

The Gospel is more that the ‘salvation moment’. What is God up to in this life? Spiritual formation is a process by which a child’s conscious relationship with God is developed within the context of a community of faith that fosters the child’s understanding of, and response to, that relationship. Christian Schools are responsible for creating and maintaining a climate that encourages spiritual formation. The Spiritual Formation workshop explores this process and encourages teachers to create safe spaces for children to experience God.”

The role of a Christian teacher

So much is expected from a teacher in every school. Whilst academic excellence is expected, teachers fulfil the role of surrogate parent, psychologist, mentor, disciplinarian etc. in every given day. The demands placed on Christian teachers in Christian schools is significant. The role of a Christian Teacher workshop helps teachers understand God’s call to a Christian classroom and helps identify the significant and divergent roles teachers are called to play in leading children towards a life that is devoted to following Jesus Christ.

Discipline and classroom management

Discipline in the average classroom is the cause of great stress for our teachers. There are so many influences that may affect the success of the teacher in creating an environment that is effective for teaching and learning. The Discipline and Classroom Management workshop helps the Christian School teacher understand how God disciplines and provides useful practical advice for teachers on how to manage and discipline children in their classroom.
