The Augustine Institute is pleased to announce that it will be offering a course designed to give teachers and school administrators an opportunity to renew their work by reflecting upon the ends of Catholic education and the craft of teaching.
Taught on the Institute’s campus in Denver during the week of June 20, the class will also be available as an audit for Catholic teachers through the Institute’s celebrated distance education program. All of the class sessions will be filmed in the Institute’s studio classroom, with the videos and other course materials available online.
Participants in the course will be encouraged in their commitment to the high calling that is the office of the Catholic teacher. The course will develop an account of Christian maturity and acquired wisdom as the twin goals of Catholic education, offer students a deeper understanding of the office and craft of the teacher, reflect upon the perennial and contemporary challenges posed to the teacher by the moral and intellectual condition of youth today, and chart a path toward wisdom in their lives as teachers and toward renewal for their schools.
