Grundtvig in the Metaverse: Could the Folk High School-concept become a vehicle for fruitful religious dialogue in a digital format? 

Christian Grund Sørensen


The concept of the Folk High School is to provide a helpful space for dialogue about worldviews, ethics, and religion. This paper suggests how these principles of pedagogical and theological thinking may be transformed and implemented into an interactive, digital environment. The format is inspired by N.F.S. Grundtvig and C. Kold (founders of the Folk High School movement) and discussed on the basis of insights from selected learning theories and theologians K.E. Løgstrup, Kaj Munk, and Søren Kierkegaard.
