You are invited to the next meeting of the Brisbane Australian New Zealand Association of Theological Schools (B-ANZATS) from 1.30 to 3.30 pm on 7 March 2016 at Brisbane School of Theology at 1 Cross St, Toowong.
Guest speaker – Dr Les Ball
“A Pedagogic Paradigm for Integrating Theology (and hence cultivating transformation in the theologue)”. The presentation will consist of a schema for approaching theological study and a (brief) review of some suggested methods for implementation.
This will be preceded by a Brisbane ANZATS business meeting of representatives from the college from 12.30 to 1.30. Please arrange for at least one representative from each college to attend the business meeting.
Les has held many posts including Field Education Director and Lecturer in Christian Education at BCQ, Academic Dean at QBCM/Malyon, Dean of Brisbane College of Theology, Director of Coursework at Sydney College of Divinity, and Research Fellow in Practical Theology at The University of Queensland. In 2010-2012, he undertook a major research project on behalf of the Australian Council of Deans of Theology into student experience and transformative learning in Australian theological education, culminating in the publication of the monograph Transforming Theology (Mosaic Press, 2012). His research has been disseminated by means of conferences, professional development seminars and the publication of a further work edited by Les Ball and James R Harrison, Learning and Teaching Theology: Some Ways Ahead (Morning Star, 2014). He was recently a keynote speaker at the ANZATFE Conference in Melbourne in December 2015.
