ANDREAS CENTER CONFERENCE 2013
Does Christian education make a difference in the cultural and civic lives of its students? In an attempt to spur the discussion of this important issue, the Andreas Center for Reformed Scholarship and Service along with the Christian Educator’s Journal will host a conference on October 31–November 2, 2013, on the campus of Dordt College.
The purpose of this conference is to (re)consider the task of Christian education and its impact from multiple angles and through diverse lenses. This conference is not limited to those who wish to explore the impact and task of traditional Christian day schools; it also welcomes those who approach education from different venues: homeschool organizations, online educational organizations, and organizations supporting Christians teaching in public schools.
Questions to be considered include:
- What is/should be the role of Christian education?
- What types of cultural engagement could/should Christian schools engage in?
- What are the challenging issues when considering the necessity and viability of Christian education?
- What does it mean to be a Word-centered people in a multi-modal world?
- What should/does Christian education look like in the 21st century?
