Ridley is implementing a renewed vision for theological education in the 21st century.
At the heart of this vision is the development of six learning communities which provide world class training in specialist fields, including Missional Leadership, Cross-Cultural Mission and Anglican Ordination.
At the same time we are building on our reputation for academic rigour in the Reformed tradition by reframing our content around the demands of mission in the emerging Australian context and developing contemporary education methodology.
Increasingly at Ridley you will see:
The teaching of cross-cultural skills so that our graduates are equipped to serve in a multi-cultural environment, and to respond sensitively whatever their ministry context.
Theology that engages the issues shaping post-Christian Australia.
Active student-centred learning, that develops cooperative team players.
Criteria-based assessment that ensure our teaching is outcome oriented.
