WCC: “Theological Education: Pandemic and Pedagogy” conference will take stock of online education experiences

ATheological Education: Pandemic and Pedagogy” conference will convene from 5-7 December at the Trinity Theological Seminary, Accra, Ghana. The hybrid conference is being organized by the World Council of Churches (WCC), World Communion of Reformed Churches, Lutheran World Federation, and Evangelische Mission Weltweit.

As COVID-19 restrictions challenged most institutions with a choice to go online or close their doors indefinitely, many theological institutions around the world were either pedagogically unprepared, or lacked infrastructure for online learning. Some adapted well to the online format, but for many the lack of residential fees and ancillary institutional support exacerbated the existing crisis of sustainability.

Even as we emerge from acute restrictions of the pandemic, theological education will not return to the situation as it was before COVID-19. While we must address new threats to educational equity and theological discourse, the conference will also celebrate the ways that increased connectivity can provide new opportunities for decolonizing learning and transformative pedagogies.

Participants will take stock of online education experiences and explore the threats and opportunities that have surfaced in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
