Open access

Abstract

Vocational training, functioning of an academic teacher in the profession and personal development are the selected areas of the author’s scientific research inquiries, based on the Christian concept of Man as the image of God and the perception of the value of a person in being a Human.

Christian academic teacher has been defined as an advocate who lives with faith, conscious of the gift of his teaching vocation. In the environment of his life and work, he penetrates the academic and social structures with evangelical values. As a guardian of human existence, he supports Man in his comprehensive development. He helps him to recognize, extract and develop his innate talents.

The conviction of the author as to the validity of forecasting and building an alternative structure of a personal model as a Christian academic teacher appeared in the course of his own considerations, the assimilation of negative assessment of academic reality, changes in thinking about the teacher, issues of peudetology.

The principal hope of the author for success of an idea of academic teacher model and his personal formation as a Christian lecturer named proponent, is to base the process of his formation on personal pedagogy of Jesus as a Master. Hence, construction of an alternative to other solutions - a model of personal Christian lecturer as an advocate and a witness of faith - fills a gap in academic situation of pedeutology educational crossroads at the threshold of the twenty-first century, and is an attempt to modernize this segment of academic reality.

It has been assumed that humanism in the educational process of higher school in the education of tomorrow means renewal, continuous creation, safeguarding and development of the human dimension of educational entities.
