This unit will provide the opportunity for experienced teachers who are not teaching in a Lutheran context to explore a Lutheran perspective on education and schooling through developing an increased understanding of the historical, social, cultural, educational and theological context of Lutheran schools or early childhood facilities. The impact which these elements have on practice will be considered in relation to various aspects of Lutheran schooling.
