Part of putting together my curriculum for my class is writing a section in the syllabus called "Relationship to College Mission Statement" or why are we offering this class. It is a good exercise. It has caused me to readdress the reasons that I currently do web development and find it inline with my Christian mission (perhaps for another post). A lot of my focus has been on the new students or more specifically journalism students. However, my friend happens to be the poster boy for why vocational sounding courses gives wheels to one's ministry training.
This class is a great opportunity for many reasons. Consider this short list.
- Missionaries do so much communication via the web
- Journalist (this is a journalism seminar after all) must utilize the web
- Pastors and lay people alike may one day (or currently) manage a website or e-newsletter
- A lot of theological discussion is happening online and basic web design skills can help you join the discussion.
