LTSP Online Learning
Learn from LTSP faculty anywhere you have an Internet connection!
Online for-credit courses allow students at a distance to learn from LTSP's outstanding faculty from anywhere they can connect to the Internet. Non-matriculated and auditing students can also participate in LTSP online courses, see the appropriate information on the LTSP Web site.
Why online learning? Online courses give the learner greater control - courses are designed to allow engagement of the material and interaction with the instructor and other students while accommodating learners' weekly schedules. And with online learning there's no commute, no travel expense. You need a computer and an Internet connection (broadband preferred), and of course the interest in engaging in theological learning.

ICS682G Public Witness in a World of Injustice, 1.00 unit, Dr. Karen L. Bloomquist, Director, Dept of Theology and Studies, Lutheran World Federation, Geneva
Although church bodies have developed an array of social statements that are important in undergirding and guiding their public witness and advocacy in society, and various evangelism resources for witnessing to the faith personally, more attention needs to be given to how local communitiies of faith (e.g., congregations) can more deeply embrace and live out the "public witness" that is central to their God-given calling, both corporately and personally. The need for this witness is evoked today especially by the kairos of intertwined economic and climate injustices. What biblical, theological-ethical, and ecclesial perspectives ground and empower our speaking and acting to transform these injustices, within a global horizon and in collaboration with ecumenical, interfaith and civil society partners?
