Specific attention will be given to the different versions and processes of religious education and theoretical explorations on shifting roles between student-teacher. Care will be given to discerning approaches to religious education, particularly the emergence of social biography, conscientization and liberative/transformative reflection Christian education.

About the Instructor
Dr. Michael Sepidoza Campos has taught Introduction to Christian Education through CMS (and now TEL) since 2009. His research interests include Filipino-American diaspora, postcolonial theory, queer theory and critical pedagogy. Michael’s work in Catholic education both constitutes his ministerial context as well as provides the theoretical space at which he investigates the intersection of pedagogy, theology, ethnicity and gender. He has taught at high schools in Boston, Guam, Honolulu and San Francisco; he also served as adjunct faculty at both PSR and the University of San Francisco.
