Issues for teaching and learning theology in a publicly-funded Catholic university
Horner, Robyn 2004. Issues for teaching and learning theology in a publicly-funded Catholic university. Australian Ejournal of Theology. February (2), pp. 1 - 21.
The discipline of theology is often considered to play a pivotal role in the transmission of values in a Catholic University. Nevertheless, a number of issues are raised by this belief. What are values? What kinds of values are at stake in the teaching and learning of theology? And given that theology can be defined as "faith seeking understanding," do the values that identify a university as Catholic conflict with the values that also identify it as public? In this article, these questions are raised with regard to the specific mission of Australian Catholic University, and its training of teachers of Religious Education in Catholic Schools.
