I am writing to remind you of 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
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.
Please pass this information on to your faculty and staff. Please let myself Sam Heyshey@citipointechurch.com or Mechile Bavas at BST email@example.com know of numbers attending so as to assist with catering.
Dr Les Ball will be speaking on – “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.
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.
Unfortunately, there is no parking onsite at BST. People will need to park along Wool Street where the dark blue “P” signs are:
- Near Anzac Park, down the road from the college – park rear in
- Up the hill beyond staff and BST resident parking, on the gravel area on the RHS of Wool Street.
