Biblical Integration

2015 International Institute for Christian School Educators

The 2015 International Institute includes an elective course on Biblical Integration.  This CEU track (4 CEU’s) will present a thorough examination of the nature and means of true biblical integration.   In addition to daily IICSE keynotes, participants will attend twenty hours of both content and application that will include:

  • The place of integration within Christian school philosophy, curriculum, and instruction.
  • The importance of a biblically integrated taxonomy of teaching and learning.
  • The relationship of biblical integration to the formation of a Christian worldview.
  • Integrating the foundational ideas or structural beliefs within a discipline as the introduction to a course of study.
  • Analysis of specific curriculum concepts to determine whether a given concept needs correction, completion, or rejection. 
    • Practice in rewriting the concepts as biblically integrated concepts. 
    • The need for life integration as essential to spiritual formation.
    • The relationship of critical thinking to biblical integration.
    • The integration of biblical character and ethics.
    • Integrating contemporary issues through analysis, discussion, or debate.

Format:  Participants will attend morning sessions which will cover the topics as outlined.  During the afternoon sessions the participants will develop greater understanding by doing the work of integration. 

Resources:  Participants should bring their course textbooks and course syllabi (when available) in order to develop integrated concepts that are directly applicable to their instruction. 

Who Should Attend:  This course is designed for:

1)       Delegates that have participated in the basic or year one IICSE curriculum in the past. 

The basic leadership and teaching curriculum presented the foundational principles and practices needed to begin leading or teaching within a Christian school.  This course is designed to provide a focused and comprehensive study of biblical integration. 

2)      Experienced administrators, department heads, and classroom teachers who desire to better understand and practice biblical integration. 

The course content will enable leaders and teachers to evaluate their present level of understanding and then advance their integration skills.  Participants will also have the means to better mentor others upon returning to their schools.

The Instructors: 

Dr. Milton Uecker and Dr. Debbie Moore, Columbia International University professors, have made Christian schooling and the training of the next generation of Christian leaders and teachers their life’s work.  Together they teach the foundational courses across all levels of education degrees at CIU.  Both are involved in assisting individual schools in their development of curriculum and instructional practices that are directly related to accomplishing the Mission of God.
