Methods and Models for Adult Education Seminar 1 ( EDN 171 )

This seminar equips participants to assist a course leader in facilitating adult learning in a variety of formal, non-formal and informal contexts. Areas covered are: working one on one with someone to help them learn, teaching a skill, assessing students, etc. The course was initially developed to prepare course staff (small group leaders) to be effective in their usual roles within a U of N course. But it is equally applicable in other contexts such as training small groups in a community, facilitating adult learning one on one, online learning, etc.

School of Ministry Development ( CHR 241 )

The Basic Leadership School is an 86 week internship with Youth with a Mission. The course is designed to train and mentor young adults in the principles and practice of Bible based ministry and leadership. The internship requires BLS trainees to be involved in a ministry of YWAM Brisbane in order to apply the ministry principles they are learning and to take various roles in those ministries, even leading in some capacity. During the internship, trainees are part of a variety of ministries to maximize their learning from different experiences and different people. Trainees will also be in charge of completing different kind of projects or events within their ministry. Trainees who are assigned to staff a DTS, will lead small outreach teams, oversee small groups and be involved in the running of the ministry which they are involved. During the BLS trainees will also have lectures and assignments of their own which will highlight ministry principles, what it looks like to serve within a YWAM missions context and assist trainees in developing biblical based leadership. Trainees will be assessed on their character development, leadership skills, missions understanding, the ability to fundraise and communicate with supporters back home and on their development of personal skills and abilities related to ministry and leadership.
