This paper argues that the effective teaching of theology is enhanced when the theological educator is aware of the educational implications of the task. The implementation of appropriate teaching-learning strategies can facilitate student engagement and shift student horizons. Drawing on the work of Bernard Lonergan this paper explores the notion of teaching to promote a shift in students’ intellectual, moral and religious horizons. Lonergan’s thought and the student centred strategies of feminist theologian Rebecca Chopp are suggested as helpful approaches for teaching practical theology.
