Spiritan Pedagogy

  • 12:00 AM to 12:00 AM

Spiritan Pedagogy
Across campus a growing number of faculty, graduate students, and administrators are reflecting on the idea of a Spiritan pedagogy. What are the hallmarks of Spiritan pedagogy? Are particular methods and practices particularly suited to Spiritan pedagogy? How does Spiritan pedagogy align with current innovations in education? How does it compare with the pedagogical approaches found in educational settings that are animated by other religious charisms, for example Jesuit or Marianist? What institutional conditions are conducive to Spiritan pedagogy?
The conversation continues this academic year. All are welcome.

Upcoming Spiritan Pedagogy Conversations for Academic Year 2015-16

Co-sponsored by the Center for Teaching Excellence."Libations and Leads: A Researcher Fair"

Co-sponsored by the Division of Mission and Identity, the Office of Advancement, the Office of Research, and the Center for Teaching Excellence.
RSVP to ccit@duq.edu.

• Learn how to identify external funding opportunities to support scholarship that is oriented to social justice or otherwise aligned with Duquesne's Spiritan ethos. Discover how your scholarship may already fit under this umbrella.

• Let others know about your research interests and expertise.

• Find colleagues who work in similar areas

• Identify interdisciplinary and collaborative opportunities to undertake social justice oriented scholarship or other forms of research that are aligned with Duquesne's Spiritan ethos.
The 2015-2016 Spiritan Pedagogy conversation series concludes this year with an inaugural researcher fair, sponsored in collaboration with Advancement and the Office of Research. The fair provides faculty and graduate students with an opportunity to publicize their research areas and expertise, browse materials shared by colleagues, network across disciplinary boundaries, and learn about specific external funding sources. We warmly encourage participation by faculty and graduate students who are unsure whether or how their research intersects with social justice or Duquesne's mission more broadly. Presentations during the day will assist attendees in considering how to recognize and package facets of their research in order to tap potential funding sources that might at first appear disconnected from their research areas or expertise.
Faculty and graduate students working in all disciplines are invited and encouraged to participate. "Registered presenters" are those faculty and graduate students who intend to promote their research interests and areas of expertise. Registered presenters may promote their scholarship and expertise in a variety of ways. For example, some might prepare a poster while others might display artifacts or simply make themselves available to chat with attendees who are there to "browse." Faculty, graduate students, and administrators are welcome to attend any portion of the day without electing to be a registered presenter. In either case we kindly request that you RSVP in order to assist us with planning
