Teaching and Leading Small Groups
Completion Time: 2 weeks
Instructor(s): Pamela Deck
Contact Info: Lisa Buffum
In this interactive two week course, you will learn to lead and teach more effectively so that people you minister with better retain and apply the Good News to their lives. Whether working with children, youth, or adults, you will discover practical information based on current scientific and educational practices that can be put to immediate use. We will explore who you are as a teacher, your students, call and gifts, ages and stages of faith development, building caring community, hospitable space, curriculum, brain-friendly learning, ideas for making scripture come alive, and more.
Through assignments and discussion boards, you will engage with the material, the instructor, and fellow participants at a deeper level than lecture alone. You can expect to spend an hour each day reading, writing assignments, and responding to others.
This course is eligible for 1.0 CEU.
