Full of Character: A Christian Approach to Education for the Digital Age
- Course Dates: Thu 4 February, 10:00 am to 1:00 pm
Frances Ward is the author of Full of Character which looks at education as formation for flourishing in a digital age.
This is practical theology at its best as she considers thankfulness, self-forgetfulness, carefulness, playfulness, resourcefulness, thoughtfulness, fruitfulness, fullness, truthfulness and hopefulness as we are invited to consider the nature of deliberate practice and how our character is built through habit, giving the wherewithal to live in a highly commodified world dominated by algorithms.
Together we will reflect on wider horizons of human flourishing so hearts and minds can explore in depth a theology of education that looks at learning from a different perspective, using a different map and guide.
Join us for this online course (Thursday 4th Feb) and be prepared for your world to look just a little bit different as a result of the journey.
