Episode 13: The Arts & Theological Education — Part 2

Posted on| March 29, 2011 | No Comments

One of my research areas for my dissertation was the types of instructional methods that can achieve character qualities (e.g, affective objectives, habits, will, …).  I saw that the visual and performing arts are ideal for impacting the heart.  They can be used to mitigate some of the weaknesses of the traditional academic model.  Even more existing was to realize how the visual and performing arts could become an outstanding tool for communicating exegesis in a manner that would draw and impact hearers.  I propose the following model:

1. Students prepare an exegesis.  From that same exegesis, students create a

  • sermon
  • Sunday school lesson
  • piece of visual art (e.g., comic book, photo display with captions, slide show, chalk talk)
  • piece of performing art (e.g., radio drama, puppet show, You-tube video)

2. Repeat the process enough times to make the new skills stick.

Podcast Episode 10: Board of Directors – Board Development (Personnel Committee)

Posted on| May 19, 2010 | No Comments

If you are a board member, you have  a great responsibility.  Certainly you would not be volunteering your time, talent, and treasure unless you believed in your school’s ministry.  Occasionally, a school has board members who are not good stewards.   This chapter deals with how to recruit the right members, orient and train them, and evaluate both the board and individual members.

Should We Seek Accreditation?

Posted on| December 3, 2008 | 1 Comment

What benefits of accreditation would be most important to your college?

  • Distribute Federal Student Financial Aid
  • Enable your students to continue their education at other universities
  • Attract more students
  • Win the confidence of potential donors
  • Not only certify your school’s quality, but use the accreditation process to upgrade your school’s quality in many areas

With these and other benefits, the question is not whether your school should seek accreditation.  The proper question is how can we get our college accredited.  Let Agron & Associates, Inc. help you find the answer.  E-mail us at dagron@accreditation101.com to request a free telephone consultation.

What is Accreditation 101?

Posted on| November 26, 2008 | No Comments

Accreditation 101, produced by Agron & Associates, Inc., is information about how to develop a school. Since 1999, Agron & Associates has specialized in helping Christian colleges achieve accreditation with legitimate accrediting agencies (i.e., agencies approved by the Department of Education and / or the Council for Higher Education Accreditation). Find us at www.accreditation.com. Typical topics of discussion are:

  • Writing a self study (i.e., compliance document, institutional research plan, strategic plan)
  • Handbooks
  • College Fund-raising
  • Faculty
  • Student Recruiting
  • Distance Education Programs
  • Orienting and Training Board Members (including their responsibility to support the school)
  • Choosing an accrediting agency
  • Preparing for a team visit (and other visits from your accrediting agency staff).

Don’t subscribe to this podcast. Instead, have your entire team subscribe.   College administrators will find this podcast to be excellent professional development. If you are writing a self study for reaffirmation or for initial accreditation, this podcast is ideal for training your team. If you are considering accreditation, this podcast will be quite helpful to your board as well as your faculty and staff.

If your school happens to be a Christian college, you may also benefit from encouraging your faculty, potential students and potential donors to listen to our other podcast: A Re-education Camp Survival Kit — Everything You Need to Survive Four Years of Indoctrination. This will help make the case for why someone should attend or donate to Christian colleges.
