Kimberly Rae Connor. “Reflections on Building an Ignatian Pedagogy Faculty Learning Community and Creating Possibilities for AJCU Collaborations.” Jesuit Higher Education 4(1): 110-115 (2015).
“During 2013-2014, the University of San Francisco’s Center for Teaching Excellence launched its first effort to support faculty learning communities (FLC), a professional development opportunity that brings together faculty engaging in an active, collaborative, yearlong program with a curriculum dedicated to enhancing teaching and learning. FLCs offer a relationship based (hence implicitly Ignatian) approach to solving problems and incubating ideas, including ideas on how to use Ignatian pedagogy to greater effect across academic programs at AJCU schools.” The author gives a brief history of the Ignatian Pedagogy FLC, divided into 3 stages: formation, participation, and presentation; and concludes with recommendations relevant to all AJCU schools, including the development of a digital collection. –author abstract
