This paper is the result of teaching a thealogy module to a class of Honours level undergraduates. Critical reflection upon this experience and the students’ evaluations of the module, raises intriguing questions concerning the value of women-only space, how one can establish a feminist classroom within a British Higher Education context, writing educational learning outcomes for a thealogy module which might include the hope of personal transformation, and ultimately reflection upon my role as an educator at the University of Birmingham.
