ABSTRACT

A recent gathering at Fuller Theological Seminary framed its discussion with the following provocative title: “The End of Missiological Education (as we know it): The Path Thus Far” (April 10, 2012). The panel discussed the need for innovative, novel approaches to the learning task in order to renew missiological education. Traditional education frames the process of learning in a theory-praxis model, where student’s lived experiences are rarely considered or critiqued in light of missiological or theological reflection. Active learning, where students combine activities with reflection upon them, presents an innovative opportunity for missiological education. This case study explores the effects of an active learning environment for the course “Congregations in the World” at Fuller Theological Seminary’s Houston Campus in the Fall of 2012. In the paper, I outline the theoretical and practical frameworks of adult learning and practical theology and introduce the pedagogical goals for the learning environment. I then provide three learning tasks that the participants engaged in, and how they led to opportunities for deeper learning. Finally, some broad and general questions for consideration are made regarding an active learning environment for future missiological education.
