The ICETE Programme for Academic Leadership (IPAL) was officially established in 2010 and arose out of the need to provide training to theological institutions in different regions of the world. IPAL provides a three-year cycle of seminars for the professional development of evangelical academic leaders and administrators to help institutions in their pursuit of quality and excellence in theological education.

This publication is the second of three volumes intended to accompany and support the IPAL seminars as well as independently providing wider access to the principles required by academic leaders for institutional and curriculum development.

Each chapter shares and illustrates the expertise and understanding the contributors have of education and curriculum design in the field of evangelical academic institutions. With an intentional awareness of a wide range of non-Western contexts, this volume is a much-needed guide for course administrators around the world.

Review quote

Curriculum is an essential tool for determining and shaping the overall educational experience and ensuring the accomplishment of the learning goals of an institution. However, the measure of a good and effective curriculum is found in both the quality of its design and its management by academic leaders and faculty.

In this book, Leadership in Theological Education 2: Foundations for Curriculum Design, the authors from across the globe, with proven expertise and experience in theological instruction and educational principles, provide a timely and relevant resource which clearly articulates the biblical foundations and learning theories and practices for effective curriculum design and implementation towards an enriching and transforming educational experience.

I highly recommend this book for use by all faculty and academic leaders who desire and are committed to transformative theological education in their institutions.

This book is a substantive and diverse tapestry, so vitally important and critical to the future of creative, God-blessed theological education. This volume on curriculum design has been crafted by a gifted and global team of thoughtful educators. I have dedicated much of my life to study educational systems and processes and resources, students and leadership, all contributing to authentic character transformation and godly excellence in ministry preparation. I can only dream of the potential impact of this series of books. Worldwide, all theological education forms and structures encounter rough waters - whether internal or external. These turbulent currents will permanently shape them, but those that resist it will wither, merge or die. Those who embrace change have a unique opportunity to impact the kingdom of God in Christ as they design creative curricula to equip the people of God for ministry at all educational levels and in all vocations. My prayer is that our courageous educators, especially those in its highest leadership, will be bold enough to read, study and implement the wisdom in this foundational resource.

This book provides a comprehensive understanding of curriculum, and guides academic leaders through the complex process of curriculum development, implementation, and evaluation. Written by seasoned theological educators from around the globe, this book serves as a much-needed roadmap to curriculum design for theological education. It will help theological institutions develop relevant training programs that will impact church and society in their contexts.
