Our free summer Evening Public Lectures feature a wide range of professors, both guests and Regent regulars. Enjoy delving deep into a pressing issue with a wise guide; then brave the mic to ask your burning question. Better (and cheaper) than a night at the movies.

Due to closure of the College related to Covid-19, all of our Summer 2020 lectures will be streamed online.

Lecture Description: How is technology changing schools? How might those changes impact faith formation, community relationships, and the Christian practice of teachers and students? Are we worrying about the right things? Drawing from a research project conducted over several years in Christian schools, this lecture will share findings concerning how digital technologies are changing teaching, learning, and the nature of the school community in Christian educational settings.

David I. Smith is Professor of Education and Director of Kuyers Institute for Christian Teaching and Learning at Calvin University. His doctoral work was in Curriculum Studies at the University of London. He has written several widely used books on pedagogical issues in Christian education.

Dr. Smith will be teaching the class “On Christian Teaching: Practicing Faith in the Classroom” from June 29–July 3, 2020 as part of our 2020 Summer Programs.
