eLearning

The Waterloo Catholic District School Board will be offering the following as eLearning courses in the next school year. Students should attempt to take all courses face-to-face, however eLearning is a good alternative when face-to-face classes are not available.

 

eLearning courses are self-directed and require a great deal of independent motivation to complete.  As a participant, you should expect to spend at least six hours each week of the semester working on your eLearning course.

 

Registration is not yet available for eLearning courses.  Listen for announcements and watch EagleVision and then, if you are wondering if eLearning would be a good fit for you, speak with your guidance counsellor for more information.

This course has the aim of assisting students in understanding themselves as moral persons living the way of Christ through an examination of ethical theories, the revelation of Sacred Scripture, and the experience and teaching of the Catholic Church. It engages students in critical reflection on significant contemporary moral and ethical issues in light of Scripture, Church teaching, and important thinkers. Social and ecological justice issues are explored along with a study of topics that focus on Christian mercy and forgiveness. The graces and challenges of relationships, marriage, and family life are explored from a Catholic perspective. Students are challenged to articulate and adopt the Christian stance in the political world. This course also enables students to explore the moral principles of the Church and how these principles relate to them as individuals, and to contemporary culture as a whole. Students explore the role played by the Christian Scriptures, prayer, ritual, and the sacraments as they discern and live out their Christian vocation in their lives. This course also introduces students to skills used in researching and investigating contemporary moral issues and the guiding principles and teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.
