The Reflective TEE Course Writer

  • ...

    Increase Association has offered TEE course writing training during 2017-18 that has entailed three workshops and significant research and writing on each side of the workshops. Over this time participants have developed and sharpened up many skills relating to effective course writing. But, more than that, they have also invested themselves into the writing process.

    This short ICETE Academy course is designed to help TEE course writers reflect on how they have been shaped as they have immersed themselves in the course writing process; and where and how they sense God has been present.

    On completion of this course, TEE course writers will have sharpened up their ability to be a reflective TEE course writer, reflected on who they are as a person undertaking course writing task, and identified where God has been in the process, with its ups and downs, challenges and opportunities.

    Course Outcomes

    This course helps writers of theological education by extension courses to reflect on how the writing process has impacted their person. The course is particularly suitable for individuals who have been involved in the INCREASE workshops that train TEE writers.
