On Coddling and Challenging Students

When Learning Hurts: Some thoughts on safe and not-so-safe from a prof at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. “Educators often know the issues for which students need some additional preparation. In my classes, I often know some of the specific issues that students are dealing with, having early on assigned papers that ask them to describe and reflect on personal experiences. I am also trying to train students to be reflective practitioners. Finding and maintaining the right balance between safety and challenge is important not only for the immediate context of the classroom, but for helping people learn to do ministry.”
