I edited distance education course material and worked with subject matter experts (professors) to develop distance education courses. I instructed several distance education (including online) courses in theology and the humanities and wrote/instructed two courses. I also did a small amount of classroom instruction.
For almost 25 years, I served as pastor in PAOC churches--Shellbrook, SK from 1976-1980, Maple Creek, SK from 1980-1985, Red Lake, ON from 1985-1992, and Parkside, SK from 1992-2000.
The title of my dissertation was "Towards a Theology of Education for the 21st Century." I worked at making it an interdisciplinary study, looking at contemporary philosophy of education and theories of learning, particularly those associated with distance/online learning, through the lens of theology.
I was accepted into BBS as a mature student on the strength of my Diploma in Theology and my years of pastoral experience. When I graduated in 2003, I received an award for excellence in research. My thesis title was “Just as They Were: Attention to Autobiography in the Works of Alexander W. Whyte.”
