JPIC 200 - Foundations of Theological Reflection
This course aims to help you to:
- Gain a basic understanding of the major components of theological reflection as integral to practical/pastoral theology;
- Practice a model of theological reflection in a way appropriate to your own ministerial context and goals;
- Begin to develop the habit of theological reflection for yourself as a central competency for ministry and to prepare for the later modules in this course.
The instructor, Dr. Maureen R. O'Brien, is Associate Professor of Theology and Director of Pastoral Ministry at Duquesne University. Dr. O'Brien teaches and writes in the areas of practical and pastoral theology, theological anthropology, theology of ministry, social justice education and catechetics
The course ended on a very positive note, which I hope will propel [my students] into further courses once they have finished with us. It is my opinion that the on-line distance learning, which is so attractively packaged and so respectful of adult education principles is a wonderful resource for on-going theological reflection in the context of ministry.
