Religion Among Children and Youth: Learning by Doing

when 22 August 2022 - 27 August 2022
language Dutch
duration 1 week
credits 5 EC
fee EUR 460

Pastors and youth workers in churches, teachers in Christian education, faithful parents: all try in their own way and from their own responsibility to support children and young people in their faith development. They do this from the awareness that there is something to learn: faith develops, individually and in community, and upbringing, education and child and youth work supports that development. But what is the relationship between faith and learning? This summer colloquium will reflect on this question from recent practical theological research.
