Michael Trice

Michael Trice did so many things well for his courses, To Hell and Back: The Problem of Evil and God and The Sacred: Encountering a New Cosmology that it would be hard to fit them all on a page. However, one of our favorite things is that he took the five dimensions of the Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm, added a fifth,  - transformation - and made the word CREATE for a message to his students to have them "create themselves anew."

Michael also used Prezi extensively to contextualize the material that the students would be reading. Here is an example where he uses Prezi as a timeline.

Along with suggestions about "How to Write a Stellar Paper" that included steps illustrated with pies (THESIS: Here is how I will prepare the pie; BODY: Here is how I eat the pie; CONCLUSION: I ate the pie and here is what I learned form the whole experience) Michael also included this message to his students, "8 Convictions I have about you in this course."
