The role of the Christian teacher as an ethical decision maker

Friday 8th - Sunday 10th January 2010

The role of the Christian teacher as an ethical decision maker

What does it mean to think ethically as a teacher? How do we do this responsibly, and maintain the integrity of our Christian faith? Join us for stimulating and lively discussion as we explore these relevant issues in the education field. In addition to this, we are keen to promote work by emergent Christian academics in the sphere of Christian education. There will be an opportunity at the 2010 conference to present and discuss work undertaken by a number of research students. To participate in this, please contact us.

Speaker

Roy McCloughry BSc, MSc, Director of the Kingdom Trust

Roy speaks widely on issues to churches and Christian groups. He was formerly Director of the Shaftesbury Project. Roy has written a number of books including Hearing Men's Voices, Living in the Presence of the Future and Belief in Politics. Roy teaches Personal and Social Ethics at St John’s College, Nottingham.

Roy is concerned that ethics should be immediately relevant to lay people facing up to situations on the shop floor, chamber of the House of Commons or boardroom in the City. His work as a consultant has convinced him that Christian ethics is a vital tool in social and corporate change. He is also convinced that for many people discussion of contemporary ethical issues is the starting point for mission.
