    At the Faculty Center for Ignatian Pedagogy, we regularly get questions about acceptable academic uses for social media, particularly Twitter.

    The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

    February 24th, 2014

    by Carol Scheidenhelm

    “If teaching is a scholarly endeavor, let’s treat it as such.” This statement by Dr. Julie Glass appropriately sums up one of the current “hot topics” in higher education: the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, generally referred to as SoTL.

On Wednesday, November 20, three Loyola faculty shared their views on how Ignatian Pedagogy informs their work in the classroom, and the teaching and […]
