SLU teaching faculty are invited to attend "Teaching at a Jesuit Institution: Informing Our Practice" from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 13, at Il Monastero.
The full-day, interactive workshop will introduce participants to Ignatian pedagogy by exploring the origins of the pedagogy and ways to apply it in the classroom.
The workshop will feature presenters from across the SLU campus.
In the morning, Steven Schoenig, S.J. (history) will discuss the roots of Ignatian pedagogy by introducing Ignatius of Loyola and describing his own experience with the Spiritual Exercises, and Darina Sargeant, Ph.D., P.T. (physical therapy and athletic training) will introduce the five elements of Ignatian pedagogy and consider the process that underlies these elements.
In the afternoon, a panel of SLU faculty members will share Ignatian teaching strategies from their own classrooms and participants will consider practical ways to integrate Ignatian pedagogy more intentionally into their own teaching.
Panelists include Ginge Kettenbach, Ph.D., P.T. (physical therapy and athletic training), Bryan Sokol, Ph.D. (psychology), and Mark Wilson, M.F.A. (fine and performing arts).
