The current theological educational training system of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Papua New Guinea has adopted a wealth of Western educational philosophies on knowing, learning and teaching but comparatively few on Papua New Guinean indigenous ways of knowing, learning and teaching. This book presents the Papua New Guinean indigenous ways of knowing and learning which are deeply rooted within dynamically living communities. It is an attempt to use and develop a Melanesian way of knowing built upon the cultural values of ‘community, relationship and sharing’ as a relationally-shared process of engaging the place, an interaction within the social and cultural context. Operation takes place at a local/indigenous conceptual level and seeks to develop a community praxis that the people of Papua New Guinea can use for both theological educators and students. It is based upon and centred in a national language setting, hence the name wokabaut-karikulum – a concept that has a shared praxis that uses Papua New Guinean Tok Pisin. This is seen as an important alternative approach for theological educational training in the seminaries/colleges in Papua New Guinea.
