“Faced with escalating trends globally in the utilization of online modalities for teaching and learning, perhaps one of the greatest challenges for Adventist educators is this: How can we shape online modalities to nurture the faith of students?

“In Part 1, readers were introduced to the design and methodology of a study that examined Adventist culture within the continental United States–its roots, its ramifications, and its relativity among church members.

Critical Thinking, the Bible, and the Christian by Prudence LaBeach Pollard
“Educators in Adventist schools face challenges posed by the influences of secularism in public education when they choose a textbook, look for a video to illustrate a point, and even when they select articles for students to read. The question ‘How do I position my Christian faith when seeking to understand the tenets of the discipline?’ is essential to their planning. This article addresses the developing critical-thinking movement and the implications of the secular approach for religious faith and practice.”

This essay ponders the need for a recalibration of the way educational services are delivered.”
