If you are in San Diego for the American Academy of Religion conference this weekend, don’t forget about our APT session on Saturday at 1:00. It promises to be excellent. Details are below.
By the way, over the last several months, we have switched “email marketing” software providers, and it’s been a bit of a rickety process. Normally you would have gotten an “email blast” by now from us with a fall update. That’s why I posted it here to the website while we are making the software transition. The kinks seem to be worked out now, and I’ll send a post-AAR email to the membership to catch you up on everything.
Here’s the information on our session in San Diego this weekend– hope to see you there–
Tom Beaudoin, President, Association of Practical Theology
Forming Practical Theologians for Emerging Spaces of Employment
Saturday 22 November 2014, 1:00-4:00 PM

How, and how well, is theological education meeting the needs of a shifting employment landscape? This session examines how practical theologians and theological institutions form students for work outside of tenure-track employment in academic life, and/or religious/church leadership, toward livelihood in emerging spaces of work.
