Quality in Theological Education - Discussion in Francophone Networks (CEVAA)
The fragmented landscapes of theological education on global scale today and different political conditions and frameworks according to which theological education can organize itself also lead to quite different ways in which accreditation and quality assessment of higher education institutions in theological education is taking place. There has not been yet any attempt to compare and reflect theologically the different sets of criteria by which associations of theological schools asses the quality of theological education within their own area of responsibility. A major international and ecumenical research project would be advisable and deserve funding on questions like a) What are the underlining theological presuppositions for sets of quality criteria for theological education in a given social and denominational context? b) What is the relation between general or secular sets of criteria for assessment in higher theological education and specific sets of criteria which emerge out of specifically theological concerns? c) To what extend there is a common ground between different sets of criteria for theological education programs between different social and denominational contexts?
