Aim
To build a community of scholars to explore, study and practice the engagement of Christian faith with different academic disciplines through a series of interactive workshops.

The workshops will consider how technology - in its various forms - can be redeemed by Christians with expertise from a variety of academic disciplines. The technologies to be covered include:
1. Personal technology
2. Communication technology
3. Educational technology
4. Business technology
5. Propaganda and advertising technology
6. Religious technology

Plan
- Each session will include pre-assigned readings, short talks from experts in the field, discussions, and reflection on applications.
- The first two sessions will lay the groundwork for how to think Christianly about technology, its design, and its use.
- The final three sessions will unpack how these principles can be applied to the specific technologies to be covered.
