Learning Resources Vocational Discernment At ILT vocational discernment begins at the start of the application process. In this process, ILT personnel assist students as they decide whether to enroll at ILT, which program is most suitable for their vocational goals and which courses they should register for in their first term. Vocational discernment requires ILT personnel to engage both potential students and enrolled students in assessing their call and gifts, discussing and clarifying educational, career and life goals, making decisions, and ultimately developing plans to meet those personal objectives. The Dean of Chapel takes the lead in counseling for vocational discernment. Communities of Faith The students’ primary community of faith is their local congregation. Students will demonstrate their active involvement in their community of faith through their coursework and will be sustained in their faith and vocational preparation by the support of the community. Students experience a compassionate, caring, and nurturing Christian community through classes, team assignments, student activities, and theological conferences. Pastoral Counseling The Dean of Chapel is available to students for pastoral counseling. As the events of a student’s life may become overwhelming and/or perplexing, the Dean is able to address these events and issues with the student, bringing the light of Christ into the circumstances, and addressing them with the law and the gospel as delivered by scriptures. Student Grievances and/or Discipline Should either a student or ILT have occasion to call one another to account for behavior contrary to the expectations delivered by this catalog or the student handbook, ILT maintains a published policy of student grievance and/or discipline that preserves both ILT’s and the student’s reputation and the student’s rights and due process. Learning Resources The Classroom ILT uses AdobeConnect© to provide a live, interactive classroom environment. The instructor and students can see and hear each other. AdobeConnect© also makes it possible to share text, slides, video, and other material. Students have access to classes through any computer with a high-speed internet connection. The Campus ILT operates through Populi, a comprehensive online system for academic institutions. Students use Populi to get resources for their courses, communicate with instructors and other students, check their grades, and browse the library catalog.
