Seminar: Listening by Design: Qualitative Research for Scholarship and Ministry

This course is also offered as WRLD 721

How do we listen well to people in our communities and our churches? How can we gain a deeper understanding of issues and challenges – from their own perspectives and in relation to broader literature on the subjects? How do we discover the lived theology of these individuals? And how do we apply what we’ve learned to our scholarship and ministry/vocational contexts? Qualitative research offers a structured approach to addressing these questions with implications for both understanding and practice. Drawing on biblical and theological reflection, case studies, tools, and strategies that apply to local and global contexts, this course is relevant for students interested in employing qualitative methods in their thesis or capstone project, as well as those interested in exploring qualitative research within their professional and vocational contexts.

This course has a maximum enrollment of 12 students.
