Divine Pedagogy in the “Common Awards” Programme

I’ve spent the last three years thinking, learning and writing about divine pedagogy in theological education: how and what it is that God teaches us as we are taught about God. So I was encouraged to find that those responsible for restructuring theological education for Anglican ministry in the UK — the designers of the Common Awards programme — have placed God’s teaching at the centre of their own vision:

As such learning communities — be they local churches or institutions — gather in the presence of the divine Teacher, there will be an acknowledgement that while there are indeed teachers and learners, ultimately all are learners in the kingdom of God. (Preface to the Common Awards, p.3)
