You are invited to join Associate Professor Bill Sultmann as he launches the latest addition to the Catholic Educator series "Pedagogy and the Catholic Educator: Nurturing Hearts and Transforming Possibilities" Authors Therese and Jim D’Orsa will be present, and the launch will be hosted by Dr Amber Calleja.
Every day teachers make decisions about how they intend ‘to make a difference’ for the students they teach, and so realise the hopes they had in becoming teachers. Most of these decisions are not made consciously, but ‘on the run’. They are often dictated by the culture of the society, or the culture of the school or school system, in which teachers are employed.
Together with integrity, competence, and an understanding heart, pedagogies remain central to the success of the project of Catholic educators who endeavour to implement for their students the transforming vision of Jesus. In this study, Jim and Therese D’Orsa seek to stimulate and resource the deep and focussed conversations needed for the creation and implementation of such pedagogies.
