Ignatian Pedagogy Series

Ignatian Pedagogy Series

What is the Ignatian Pedagogy Series?

In the Ignatian Pedagogy Series, participating faculty will form themselves more deeply in the connections between present-day research into student learning in higher education and the 450 year-old Ignatian pedagogical tradition. Through a series of workshops, coupled with short readings, follow-up class activities, and short reflection assignments, participating faculty will learn how Ignatian Pedagogy aligns with current research into student learning and how best to apply it to teaching their own disciplines.

In Fall and Winter Quarters, a group of up to 20 faculty members will participate in a three-session module on a specific theme related to Ignatian Pedagogy.

The modules for 2019/20 are:

     Fall: Reflective Practice

     Winter: Inclusive Pedagogies

Who is this for?

The series is open to all SU faculty who are:

  1. Teaching during the quarter in which they participate so that they are able to put ideas into practice in real time.
  2. Available and willing to attend on all three scheduled dates.

Each module has 20 places available. Participants will be allowed to apply for more than one module in a year, but are not required to complete all modules on offer.

What’s in it for you?

Each module in the series helps you:

  • Suffuse your classes with Ignatian pedagogical practices that are supported by research findings on effective learning.
  • Articulate to your students the Ignatian underpinning of your approaches to learning and teaching.
  • Build a supportive learning community of peers for sharing experiences, practices, and resources to enhance our students’ learning.

Participants will also receive a stipend of $100 on completion of a module.
