Some Uses of Technology in Undergraduate Theology Classes

Richard B. Steele

Richard B. Steele argues here that it is appropriate for teachers of undergraduate theology classes to engage quite intentionally in the spiritual formation of students, and that three moderately high-tech teaching methods—e-mail correspondence, online discussion boards, and data projection systems—can be particularly useful for this. He does not claim that undergraduate theological pedagogy must be oriented to the spiritual growth of the students, but only that it may be, if the instructor has the necessary interest, skill, and institutional support. Nor does he claim that high-tech methods can replace older and more familiar methods of theological instruction, but only that they can be effective supplements thereto. Mr. Steele is Professor of Moral and Historical Theology at Seattle Pacific University.
