Research presentation

Theology and Educational Sciences share a common history, but has in the past decades often been seen as opposites. As researcher in both academic fields, I strive to make them interact and to make contributions in both academic fields. My research is mainly focused on a system level.

Educational perspectives on Theology

How and in what ways are Education used in Theology? How does church denominations work to educate it’s clergy? How do priests educate parishioners, and how do the parishioners educate their priests? These kind of questions are at the focal point of my research on educational perspectives on Theology. My academic plattform is Practical Theology, juxtaposed with Educational Scicence.

Theological perspectives on Education

How can education in a postsecular society become broader and deeper through the aid of religion? How can hope be found for the future of education through the use of religious perspectives? How can Theological research and practice of Interreligious dialogue and Ethics contribute to a multicultural plural society? Questions such as these are at the heart of my research on Theological perspectives on Education. My stance is within the field of Practical Theology with aims at Educational Research.
