Seeking the common good: what can we learn from other professional disciplines?
A significant question posed in the ATS Educational Models and Practices in Theological Education project was what theological educators could learn from the experiences of other disciplines of graduate professional education. Did law schools, medical schools, and schools of social work, for example, face similar challenges to those facing theological schools? What opportunities are educators in those disciplines (and others) embracing? What might conversations with a range of graduate professional educators reveal about educational models and practices that could be of benefit to leaders of theological schools?.
