Julie Lytle

Real name: 
Independent Scholar and Theological Education Media Consultant
Bio Statement: 
My primary interest is the intersection of theology, educational pedagogy, and technology. My focus has been teaching lay and ordained pastoral leaders to navigate the digital landscape and to make communicative decisions by matching their desired outcomes with appropriate media. My research includes an ecological approach to studying the impact of the digital convergence on individual and communal formation, the transformative potential of interactive media, and the methods to use emerging technologies for lifelong faith formation. My perspective, skills, processes, and practices are anchored in over twenty five years of experience in media production and ministry in parish, diocesan, national and academic contexts. Currently a Theological Education Media Consultant, I led the development of the Episcopal Divinity School’s innovated Distributive Learning Master degree options and the creation of EDSConnect, its lifelong formation and education division. Previous initiatives include the development of Interpreters Carelink, a videoconference-based hospital emergency room interpreter service for the deaf, hard of hearing, and non-native English speakers and CTNC, a satellite distribution network for faith based programming that operated in the late 1980s. I have an interdisciplinary doctorate in Religion and Education from Boston College, a Master of Divinity degree from the University of Notre Dame, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism and Advertising from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
