The recently rededicated Methodist College, Wesley House Cambridge, has taken a step into the digital age in appointing the Revd Hannah Bucke as Director of Online Learning, to help develop accessible resources and flexible patterns of study for online learning.
Using online learning, people will be able to study wherever and whenever they choose, through a variety of non-accredited ovirtual courses available from September 2017.
- Courses for both individual and group study.
- Self-paced and real-time learning opportunities.
- Material from leading scholars.
- An online community sharing ideas and expertise.
Hannah, a presbyter in the Methodist Church in Great Britain, is currently stationed in the Southend and Leigh Circuit in a pioneering appointment where she is developing a new town centre ministry.
She said: "I am very pleased to be taking up this new post, developing online learning programmes for Wesley House.
"Online learning now has a significant and growing place in the academic landscape and it provides a great opportunity for Wesley House to expand its provision. We hope to engage Methodists and others, both in the UK and abroad, in a variety of courses which draw upon the expertise and resources of the College's Cambridge base."
Two courses already being planned for 2017 and 2018 are 'Walking the story' and 'Leadership as discipleship'.
Walking the story will be based on the book by Jane Leach, Principal of Wesley House, this course will explore pilgrimage, its role in Christian spirituality and its relevance in Christian life today. For group or individual study.
Leadership as discipleship: a biblical view will explore some of the models of leadership that we use and how well they serve the modern church. Examining the stories behind some of the leaders in the Bible, we ask what lessons they have to teach us. For individual study.
