Jason Mills, PhD
Having been shaped by Paulo Freire's pedagogy, I see teaching as a form of liberation. Good teaching releases students to think freely and differently about their world. I want my students to see themselves as educators of educators and students of students.
I am an educator researching ministry and technology, online theological education, pastoral formation and spiritual theology. My wife and I are both ordained Free Methodist chaplains/pastors and parents to two amazing children. I enjoy making pizza, swimming, and prairie tailwinds when biking.
