    Reflecting on Focus on Teaching & Learning

    February 11th, 2016

    by Ryan Crisp

    By Julia Pryce, PhD Associate Director, Faculty Center for Ignatian Pedagogy Associate Professor, School of Social Work This January’s Focus on Teaching & Learning (FOTL) was slightly different than the others, and it took me a little while to pin down quite how. Surely the location, in the lovely Schreiber Center, was part of it; […]


    Inspiration

    My uncle recently moved to Macau, China to join the faculty at the University of Macau.  Once he arrived he sent me a text message late in the night.  It read, “Do you know Ricci?  Matteo Ricci?  He is a big deal here.”  Being late in the night and not knowing the context I really […]

    “Walk beside me and be my friend”-From a Jewish children’s song A friend asked if I’d been following the news out of Missouri: had I heard about the President resigning? The things said (and, perhaps even more strikingly, the things not said) to students at the University of Missouri? I replied that I had indeed […]

    September 1st, 2015

    by Ryan Crisp

    By Julia Pryce, Ph.D. Associate Director, FCIP This year’s Focus on Teaching & Learning event, which was focused on the theme of social justice, did not disappoint, as I jumped from one presentation to the next, trying to catch parts of multiple presentations at once so as to not miss out on enough content to […]


    Teaching, Research and Reflection

    August 17th, 2015

    by Carol Scheidenhelm

    Jesuit educators have a long tradition of encouraging reflective practice among students. Providing opportunities for students to reflect on what they have learned enables them to determine what changes they will make in their lives based on their new understanding of who they are in relation to the world. Some actions resulting from these reflections […]


    Educational Implications of the Pope’s Encyclical

    July 28th, 2015

    by Carol Scheidenhelm

    In his recent papal encyclical, Pope Francis calls on us to acknowledge our misuse of the natural world and to find solutions to stop the abuse of our environment. The treatise is compelling and evokes many reasoned arguments as evidence of our disregard for the earth. In her recent comments about the Pope’s message, Dr. […]

    Finding God in all Things

    Finding God in all Things

    May 29th, 2015

    by Shannon Milligan

    I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the phrase “find God in all things.”  The phrase is, of course, a call from St. Ignatius Loyola.  The first time I heard Father Jose Mesa speak of finding God in all things, I could understand the context and importance of the phrase but had not yet internalized […]

    by Carol Scheidenhelm

    On April 28, the Faculty Center for Ignatian Pedagogy (FCIP) recognized the faculty who have graduated from the Online Teaching Course (OTC) offered by the Center. The OTC is demanding and time consuming—and teaching online takes a lot of flexibility and practice. Congratulations to all those who persevered! We were honored to have a welcome […]
