dc.description.abstract What do teachers of Bible to adults in liberal settings need to know and be able to do, and what kinds of learning opportunities foster those capacities? The authors, co-teachers, have--through three iterations of their course “Teaching Bible to Adults”--developed an integrated approach in teaching their respective fields of Bible and Jewish education. Through a variety of methods, they have increasingly attempted to facilitate in their students the mastery of the pedagogic content knowledge necessary for their own effective teaching, rather than bifurcating knowledge of Bible and knowledge of pedagogic strategies. This paper details the process of the course’s development as a reflection of the authors’ ongoing investigation, reading, and revision of their own teaching practices.
