We are excited to be partnering with the Anabaptist Learning Workshop (ALW) to offer a workshop designed to facilitate reflection on current and/or future teaching practice. Lead by Matthew Bailey-Dick, coordinator of the ALW and PhD candidate in Adult Education at the U of T, this interactive workshop will give you a chance to reflect on who you are as a teacher OR who you will be as a teacher. Through the two lenses of Anabaptist-Mennonite faith and non-faith-based pedagogy, we will explore some of the heights and depths of teaching, we will identify a variety of tools for facilitating good education, and we will reflect on how the roles of scholar, teacher, and Christian disciple interact. This workshop is for grad students, professors, pastors, Sunday School teachers, and others who want to explore the vocation of teaching.
