- Education has become more experiential
- Instruction is enhanced through interaction
- Audio-toriums are now Audio-visual theaters
- Factory, assembly-line learning (desks in rows) give way to facilitation (roundtable discussion)
- Passive learning (sit and listen) now invites participation (audio + visual + kinetic)
- Content (information) is enhanced when contextualized into social settings
- Students (noun) are perceived as learners (verb)
- Teachers are learning leaders; participants in the learning experience
- Coaching is as critical to learning as lecturing-preaching-monologues
- How do these insights redesign the role of the teacher-leader?
- Are the implications to your methods of disciple-making?
- How would an assessment of these observations change how you approach preaching?
- What changes should be made to classes and training sessions?
- How will you refocus on being Christ-centered rather than content-centered?
- What other questions should you ask to reimagine discipleship? Evangelism? Equipping?
