Section Four – Skill Competencies

One – Vision     Two – Knowledge     Three – Attitudes     Four – Skills     Five – Evaluation

This section of my blog details my self-assessment of my skill competencies.

3a​- Capable of adequately developing, critiquing, and tailoring curriculum materials for use in a specific context (this includes denominational issues)

Initial Assessment: Unfamiliar Growing Edge Relatively Strong Competent
Final Assessment: Unfamiliar Growing Edge Relatively Strong Competent

Explain:

I am still at the beginner level with coming to understand all these various materials that are available for use,

Plan for continued learning at the seminary and beyond:

I expect to slowly spend more time evaluating materials with respect to my growing self-understanding and growing faith.

3b​- Capable of supporting theological and biblical reflection in a variety of contexts, and with a variety of people involved

Initial Assessment: Unfamiliar Growing Edge Relatively Strong Competent
Final Assessment: Unfamiliar Growing Edge Relatively Strong Competent

Explain:

My natural open-mindedness contributes to this particular extension.

Plan for continued learning at the seminary and beyond:

Continue taking more courses within religious education.

3c​- Capable of supporting cross cultural engagement in at least one specific cultural context

Initial Assessment: Unfamiliar Growing Edge Relatively Strong Competent
Final Assessment: Unfamiliar Growing Edge Relatively Strong Competent

Explain:

I am unfamiliar with this concept right now.

Plan for continued learning at the seminary and beyond:

As I learn about cross-cultural engagemnt, I learn about these cross-cultural experiences that would be meaninful to try. That will remain a goal of mine.

3d​- Capable of supporting intergenerational learning

Initial Assessment: Unfamiliar Growing Edge Relatively Strong Competent
Final Assessment: Unfamiliar Growing Edge Relatively Strong Competent

Explain:

My congregation has been steadily growing its intergenerational ministries, but I have not experienced these activities first-hand. This will be something to explore over the course of the spring.

Plan for continued learning at the seminary and beyond:

My congregation has begun engaging in a regularly scheduled worship experience with residents in a local nursing home, and I expect I will learn a great deal by participating in the experience.

3e​- Capable of engaging at least one pressing contemporary learning challenge from within a faith community framework (denominational pluralism, interfaith dialogue, media culture, environmental pressures, socio-political unrest, peace and justice issues, race and class issues, gender, disability, etc.)

Initial Assessment: Unfamiliar Growing Edge Relatively Strong Competent
Final Assessment: Unfamiliar Growing Edge Relatively Strong Competent

Explain:

I think my example learning unit regarding worship style is a very current and pressing topic to engage.

Plan for continued learning at the seminary and beyond:

Continue to dialogue with people who think differently than I do.

3f​- Capable of recruiting, training, supporting, supervising, evaluating and affirming volunteers in the shared ministry of Christian faith nurture

Initial Assessment: Unfamiliar Growing Edge Relatively Strong Competent
Final Assessment: Unfamiliar Growing Edge Relatively Strong Competent

Explain:

I continue to learn helpful skills for managing helpers in an efficient, yet empathetic and supportive, way.

Plan for continued learning at the seminary and beyond:

Continue to work on group projects with other people whose ideas may not agree with mine, or who may not have the same sense of style. But regardless, learn how to work together in a supportive manner.

  1. Fair enough. Here, too, I would suggest that over time you can add specific artifacts.
