By invitation. Many seminaries and universities are expanding their course and program offerings through extension sites and hybrid and online courses. The challenge for these institutions is to ensure that personal and spiritual formation is taking place at a distance. This webinar addresses the changing landscape of theological education by exploring best practices of providing spiritual formation in distant learning courses and programs. Attention will be on the development of learning communities, engaged discussion, and embedded mentoring and learning. Featured experienced leaders in the field of spiritual formation and distant education will include: Steve and Mary Lowe, Erskine Theological Seminary; Dale Hale, Asbury Theological Seminary; Mark Maddix, Northwest Nazarene University; and Kris Veldheer, New Vistas Educational Consulting.
