In this unit learning is achieved through deep engagement in approved placements and a theological action-reflection model of learning. Students will utilise this praxis learning method to synthesise their theological learning and placement practice, enabling holistic development. This will include consideration of how scripture, theology, tradition, culture and experience coalesce in their own experiences of ministry formation. This unit is predominantly delivered in non-classroom based settings.
