Intercultural Team Teaching as a Pedagogical Model for Intercultural Collaboration in Global Theological Education

From: Volume 12, Issue 1: Spring 2015, Research on Effective Pedagogy Pages 118-136


The concept of team teaching is not new, but based on her qualitative research findings the author has conceptualized intercultural team teaching in the field of theological education and its implications for global theological education. This article introduces the model that emerged from a bilingual qualitative case study exploring the contextual appropriateness of a graduate theological program in Korean at a North American theological school. How does teaching and learning happen across languages and cultures in the theological classroom? By design, intercultural team teaching can be a pedagogical model for intercultural collaboration in global theological education.

Key words: intercultural team teaching (ITT), team teaching, co-teaching, global theological education, intercultural teaching collaboration
