Christian Deeper Learning Conference

Deeper by Design: The Impact of our Practices

Why Deeper Learning?

An honest conversation with educators

As a Christian educator, you chose your work because you love kids, love God, and want to do meaningful work that has an impact beyond this life. To be able to teach about all aspects of life, especially the parts that live deepest in our heart – our faith, gives us deep purpose in our work in Christian education. We want kids at our school to be deeply in love with Jesus Christ and serving him in all aspects of their life.

Yet, at times, if we are honest, we may have nagging feelings that we are not moving toward that ultimate mission through fully aligning our faith/beliefs and how we educate:

  • Perhaps the methods we have learned and use in our teaching practice don’t line up with how we know we ought to be honoring kids as image-bearers.
  • Perhaps we wonder if we have really thought deeply enough about the story being told through our curriculum resources, the culture, and perhaps unconsciously by ourselves – there is a disconnect between the story of success versus the Christ story and his kingdom – and we wonder what kids are really picking up from us.
  • Perhaps we feel that we are simply adding to a student’s individualistic focus instead of developing their heart for service to others.
  • On top of these things we wonder if we are deeply engaging students in learning and helping them to take responsibility for their learning or simply going through the motions, feeling powerless to change the system?

Deeper Learning in Christian schools

Deeper Learning in Christian schools seeks to help educators with these three foundations:

  1. A celebration of the learner: what it means to be created in God’s image.
  2. A mindfulness towards learning design: how curriculum, instruction and assessment inspire inward and outward engagement.
  3. A responsiveness to culture: how to embody our mission in every aspect of school life and how to live it out in God’s world.
