Christian Visitor, Educationist

Christian Visitor, Educationist

A Prominent Christian Educationist will visit Victoria on a Teaching Mission this June. Sponsored by the VUW Evangelical Union, Mr. William Andersen, MA, DipEd, DipRE, will give a series of lectures on the theme "Towards Christian Maturity."

Andersen, a Lecturer in Education at the University of Sydney, has specialised in the field of the Theory and Philosophy of Education, and did his thesis on Personality Theory. His present research takes him into Ideological Education (the modern attempt at educating to develop a philosophy of life) with the idea of suggesting an acceptable form of ideological education for modern society.

The aim of the lectures is to show that Christianity is not outmoded either in the field of individual personality or in the field of advanced, specialised academic study.

Andersen will not be speaking in psychological or educational Jargon, but will seek to explain Christian principles with reference to current psychological concepts. Students are encouraged to avail themselves of the opportunity of hearing a man who is able to bring home in an academically acceptable way the basic principles of Christianity.
