Proposal abstract :
The Wartburg Theological Seminary faculty is engaged in online instruction both for degree and certificate programs. We are accredited by both ATS and HLC for comprehensive distance education programs. The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America has both Masters and Certificate tracks toward ordination. In fall semester we are implementing a new Master of Divinity curriculum to be delivered employing interactive video. This new approach needs to combine the best teaching and learning practices from both residential classroom and asynchronous online courses. We are seeking a consultant to help us develop and implement new and enhanced teaching and learning strategies and methods focused on course design, course development, and implementation of new pedagogy for effective use of interactive video. This proposal is to assist in equipping our faculty for an entirely new mode of teaching, employing video streaming, something we have never done before.

Learning Abstract :
Wartburg Theological Seminary (WTS) faculty members are engaged in online instruction for both degree and certificate programs. We are accredited by both A TS and HLC for delivery of comprehensive distance education programs. Our church body, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), has both a Masters level and a Certificate track, Theological Education for Emerging Ministries (TEEM) toward ordination. In fall semester we are implementing a new Master of Divinity curriculum that will be delivered employing interactive video. This new approach needs to combine the best of teaching and learning practices from both residential classroom and asynchronous online courses. We received from the Wabash Center this grant for a consultant to help us develop and implement new and enhanced teaching and learning strategies and methods focused on course design, course development, and implementation of new pedagogy for effective use of interactive video. The faculty had initial introduction to the challenges of this pedagogy at our faculty retreat in May 2016. This grant has assisted us in equipping our faculty for an entirely new mode of teaching, employing video streaming.
