Dear Students and Fellow Educators,
“Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord” (1 Timothy 1:2 KJV). I pray you are well.
Here is a newly published academic article. It is a philosophy of teaching and learning framework for other educators.

I have updated a Research Paper Template (Word, Pages). This template is a modified Turabian 9th Edition style based on the August 2022 Erskine Style Manual. The template is easily adaptable to other styles based on Turabian. I share it with you for others as well. I appreciate templates (it saves time and, thus, allows one to multiply and maximize ministry), and I always seek to have my students have a style template. When teaching the course I am in now, “Transformation and Vocation,” which is, essentially, “Welcome to Theological Higher Education and Spiritual Formation for Seminarians,” I find that the students often lack essential writing skills for graduate-level higher education. Over the years, I have written resources to seek to help them, especially writing with a scholarly-pastoral voice appropriate for theological higher education. Examples are below, and you are welcome to them. I would suggest that all new students be given an “Introduction to Theological Higher Education Studies” seminar. I believe that if done well in an asynchronous modality, the product could be used efficiently for all incoming students.
The template for the updated Theological Higher Education Research Paper (this modified Turabian 9th edition research paper is based on Erskine Seminary Style Guide, August 2022; thanks to the writing center at SBTS for their outstanding contributions to theological higher education) and an updated Philosophy of Teaching model is available with other writing and research resources on my faculty page. The new template is at the top of the content under “New!”: [https://michaelmilton.org/faculty-page/]
I trust this will be of help to some.
