About this collection

Ignatian pedagogy is a model that promotes the goal of Jesuit education, speaks to the teaching-learning process, addresses the faculty-student relationship, and has practical meaning and application for the classroom.  Similar to the process of guiding others in the Spiritual Exercises, faculty who apply Ignatian pedagogy accompany students in their intellectual, spiritual, and emotional development. They do this by creating the conditions, laying the foundations, and providing the opportunities for the continual interplay of the student's experience, reflection, and action.

 

The Ignatian pedagogical paradigm is a practical teaching framework consistent with and effective in communicating the Ignatian values and world view. Faculty, regardless of discipline, can utilize this approach so that their teaching is academically sound and at the same time formative of persons for others.

 

As part of the conversation of a year-long USF Faculty Learning Community on Ignatian Pedagogy in 2013-14, members of the FLC, all from the School of Management, gathered all the best information already assembled by ACJU (Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities) schools, added items of special interest for and by USF faculty, and created a compilation of resources, the basis for this digital collection.  The following year FLC Facilitator Kimberly Connor asked two USF librarians, Vicki Rosen and Jessica Lu, if the library might host the collection.  This led to the collaborative creation of the Practicing Ignatian Pedagogy Digital Collection.

 

The individual resources were reviewed, brought up to date, a few additional ones were added, and each was assigned a subject category. Whenever possible, the items were organized either to reflect their position within the larger context of the Society of Jesus and the Catholic Church or in chronological order by publication date. As such this collection is both a digital archive and an ongoing conversation by and about the Jesuits, with a focus on Jesuit higher education and the social sciences.

 

We invite colleagues to contribute their relevant work to the Practicing Ignatian Pedagogy Collection and to join in an exchange about how best to continue this project to keep it useful and relevant.  Please contact  Kimberly Connor (connonk@usfca.edu) or Vicki Rosen (rosen@usfca.edu).
