EDUCATIONAL CORNERSTONES AND ADAPTATION IN CHANGING LANDSCAPES OF PRACTICE

(Etienne Wenger, Communities of Practice: Learning, Meaning, and Identity, (New York: Cambridge University Press, 1998), 118ff.)

As editors we’ve been comparing notes about adaptation and change in CPE environments and in Theological Field Education. Clearly there are challenges being confronted in the new permutations of CPE and Theological Field Education environments. Adaptations are being made while the cornerstones of our educational process: action—reflection—action remains a constant.

In M.A./MDiv programs, Theological Field Education is conducted completely online, in various hybrid formats, or in traditional residential settings. In each, Theological Field Education provides places to practice and spaces to reflect (peer reflection group, with supervisor-mentor, and individually) under quality supervision committed to mentoring. Adaptation has been critical to delivering a rich formational experience.

In CPE, our cornerstone has long been educating and creating spiritual care leaders who embrace their unique and insightful pastoral identity and pastoral competence alongside their ability to engage in pastoral reflection. While this cornerstone remains the needed and necessary brick of CPE, new bricks of adaption are on the horizon all around us. The new adaptations on the horizon center on the question of where pastoral identity, pastoral competence, and pastoral reflection are developed. How do we redefine “the clinic” in Clinical Pastoral Education? Maybe the clinic is technically not a clinic at all but just as viable a teaching and learning space -the homeless shelter, the domestic violence safe haven, the airport, or the college dorm. They are some of the new bricks that are calling us to adapt in CPE…. if we are open.

Research and Publications Committee

The Research and Publications Committee supports ATFE members who conduct research, publish articles, and produce books. The committee fosters and encourages qualitative and quantitative research. One particular interest is supporting research that benefits the proliferation of ATFE’s work through collaborative efforts of field educators.

ATFE Research Grants

The committee invites applications for ATFE Research Grants. This is an opportunity for ATFE members to research and present on an area of interest that intersects with the work of Field Educators. The committee is primarily concerned with encouraging field educators to build their research skills and explore questions that impact their work with students, institutions and the wider community. Collaborative proposals are encouraged. We also see this as an opportunity for members to build exposure to the grant writing process.

Criteria for ATFE Grant Awards

  1. The applicant must be a member of ATFE in good standing. This criterion can be waived, if the proposed research directly focuses on furthering the goals of ATFE.
  2. The proposal must be complete and submitted by March 1.
  3. The Research & Publications Committee will evaluate the proposal on the quality of the application, its relevance for theological field education, and its alignment with the current goals and objectives of the association.
  4. The applicant must include a plan for dissemination of the results. This can be done by sharing with the ATFE membership the results of his/her research through a presentation at the Biennial consultation or a scholarly publication such as Reflective Practice: Formation and Supervision in Ministry. The applicant must stipulate in the proposal how they plan to share their results and at which Consultation they would be willing to make their presentation.
  5. Preference will be given to research that will be carried out as part of a sabbatical.
  6. Applicants who are part of the Research & Publications Committee are eligible, but must absent themselves from the deliberation process.
  7. Preference is given to first time applicants. Prior funding does not, however, preclude award.
  8. The ATFE Research Committee may not award any funding if the proposal(s) submitted do not merit award or do not implement the aims of ATFE.  Generally, study leaves or course preparation will not be funded.

Applying for an ATFE Research Grant:

  1. The proposal needs to be submitted to the Chair of the ATFE Research Committee. The committee chair will circulate it among the committee members for review and final recommendation.
  2. Applications are due no later than March 1 of each year.
  3. The proposal needs to be brief with the narrative portion not more than 5 pages single-spaced.
  4.  Please note that the bi-annual funds available for all ATFE research grant proposals is $4,000. We recommend grant requests of $1000 so that we are able to support multiple requests.

A Complete Proposal Includes:

  1. Abstract of your Proposal
  2. Outline of the nature of the research to be conducted (this needs to be a clear statement of your research focus)
  3. Narrative that includes: the research, its relevance for theological field education and how the applicant plans to share the results with ATFE. Include purpose and procedures relevant to research type (e.g., anticipated outcomes, theoretical framework, methods for sampling, data collection and analysis, and instruments proposed) as well as, your anticipated outcomes, plan for evaluation and a date for completion of the project.
  4. Budget
  5. Timeline that includes dates for research, evaluation, financial reporting and dissemination
  6. CV or Resume of applicant and if applicable, other research partners.
