Understanding the World through Religion

Religious literacy is a gateway to understanding the world and a key to global citizenship.  In this workshop, participants will explore a diversity of religious traditions, movements, and institutions and will examine how they have shaped politics, economics, and societies across the globe both historically and in the present day.


Pedagogical focus: Discussion Moves

Participants will learn how to implement discipline specific practice-based methods of instruction to facilitate text-based, whole-class and small group rich discussion.

Two hours of post workshop pedagogical follow-up is required to earn CEU credits for this course.
