Christian Deeper Learning Conference

Workshop Proposal

Deadline for submission

October 15, 2019

We are accepting proposals for the third annual Christian Deeper Learning Conference. This year’s conference theme is Deeper by Design: The Impact of our Practices. The ways in which we design curriculum, instruction, and assessment, the ways we utilize space, time and resources, the ways we structure leadership and communication operate at a level deeper than cognition, more formative than what we think and talk about with our heads. 

The following are supporting documents to help you prepare your proposal:

Proposal guiding questions

We are looking for proposals that respond to the conference theme, Deeper by Design: The Impact of our Practices.  
Guiding questions for our conference: 
    • Are my practices shaped by tradition, habit, the way I’ve always done it, or by my imagination of Christian learning community? 
    • What kinds of practices engage students actively in God’s Story and invite them to play their role? 
    • What do I need to do to reshape my practices to align with what I believe about Christian education? 
  • We want to help participants become more reflective about the formative forces inherent in how they teach, rather than what they teach. 
  • We want to give them the experience of being engaged in learning in the same way we hope they will engage their students. 
  • We want to give them ideas for how to reshape their practices to be more aligned with their vision of Christian community. 

We are excited to have David Smith as our keynote speaker. His latest book, On Christian Teaching: Practicing Faith in the Classroom, provides a deeper description of the themes we hope to address in this conference.
