Imagining the New Normal

  • ...

    The COVID-19 pandemic has deeply impacted all levels of society and there is an increasing conversation about the 'new normal' that we will witness in the aftermath of the pandemic.

    In this nanocourse, we hope to spark your imagination as you try to envision what the new normal will look like for theological education in your context.  To do this, we have interviewed a number of leaders in theological education from different regions of the world, asking them about the changes they are seeing and envision in the near future. 

    At the end of the course, you will get a change to try to formulate your own vision.
