Stirring the Soul, what an inspirational way to lead those interested in education into an exploration of educational responsibilities!
This professional development seminar develops Pope Francis’ belief and offers ways to embrace enthusiastically one’s professional calling. The formation opportunity embraces three key principles for a contemporary model of mission formation for Catholic educators and leaders: to be personally meaningful, ecclesially faithful and strategically effective.
Facilitated by Dr Jill Gowdie, this seminar will allow participants to discuss and critique models of spiritual formation in the Catholic educational setting, and explore practical ideas and underpinning processes that participants can use and adopt into their own leadership contexts.
For those wishing to extend their learning outcomes, this seminar may articulate into an academic unit (LEAD906) which explores the notion of contemporary Christian mission and the implications of this for formation, outlining the contours of a new approach to formation.
Focussing on the meaning, content and processes of formation, and also on the formational responsibilities of the leader, it examines insights drawn from the Christian faith tradition. Context, community and the needs of the leader, as well as issues concerning adult spirituality in Christian faith settings, are also addressed. In addition, the unit explores the notion of contemporary Christian mission and the implications of this for formation. It outlines the contours of a new approach to formation.
