Some weeks ago, I blogged about my struggle in teaching the Introduction to the study of the Apostle Paul in my Introduction to the New Testament course (for my earlier posts, see Introduction to the Study of the Apostle Paul Part 1 and Part 2). I mentioned that I decided to screen the documentary on The Story of Paul the Apostle: The Man Who Turned the World Upside Down produced by the History Channel.
Well, the students' evaluation on the course has come in (as we are in the final week of the semester now). I am very pleased to note that quite a number of students in the course have indicated that they find the screening of the documentary and the discussion as one of the most helpful aspects of the course. They have also given some constructive suggestions on how to improve the course, which I will definitely take into account if I were to teach the course again in the future.
Thank you for all the feedback. It was a great joy teaching the first year seminarians this course. I hope they find the course beneficial and learn something out of it.
