Faculty & Program committee


The main faculty for the Asia-based MTD program is those who are already teaching in the Eastern College Australia Eastern program.

A key person - both teaching and as the overall program director - is Steve Bradbury.

Steve Bradbury

Steve, from New Zealand, was for 25 years the National Director of TEAR Australia and was the inaugural chair of the Micah Network (an international network of over 300 Christian relief, development and justice organizations) and Micah Challenge International (a global advocacy campaign mobilizing Christians against poverty).

The intensive sessions of the units will also draw on practitioners and other experts from within the SE Asian region and further afield.

A strength of the program is the high degree of interaction and 'contextualising' between the students who are themselves practitioners bringing significant experience to the learning experience of the cohort.
