Held in Washington DC at The Catholic University of America School of Theology and Religious Studies on Thursday, March 16, 2017, this free symposium will involve Mid-Atlantic seminary deans and faculty and is being co-organized by the Washington Theological Consortium, The Interfaith Center for Sustainable Development, the Green Seminary Initiative, and the Methodist Theological School in Ohio.
Dramatic changes are transforming the way theological school faculties pursue both teaching and scholarship. The expansion of educational technologies, rising administrative expectations, and growing pressure to facilitate student formation are demanding more of faculty than ever before. ATS programs and resources for faculty at all stages of their careers are guided by three primary goals:
- to support the vocation of theological educators,
- to address dramatic changes in faculty roles and work, and
- to help faculty develop as leaders in their institutions.
