Faculty Inservice Ideas WhatInWorld


Principals and their faculties are invited to join Professor Steven Thiesfeldt for a seven-lesson inservice program entitled Conflicting Worldviews: The Lutheran Teacher's Struggle for Our Children's Souls based on today's unbiblical worldviews and their impact on Lutheran students, schools, and teachers. How do Lutherans teach unchanging truths in a changing world? The topic is excellent for use as an inservice program or an ongoing Bible study to promote both spiritual and professional growth among teachers at all levels of education. The online study will incorporate interactive and multimedia experiences. Read more.
