Embedding Interfaith Learning into Curricular and Co-curricular Spaces
Sunday, December 9th • 08.30 AM – 12.00 PM
This pre-conference opportunity will focus on integrating interfaith components into curricular and co-curricular spaces.
Through presentations from Interfaith Youth Core and campus leaders, the session will explore concrete tactics to guide collaborative curriculum development toward interfaith learning, prepare and support faculty and staff to teach, and lead and facilitate conversations around worldview diversity productively. Highlighting national research from IDEALS and promising pedagogical practices for the field, this session will provide participants with opportunities to consider their own pedagogy, course development strategies, programs, and goals for creating or revising curricular and co-curricular offerings. The session will address emerging trends and challenges from recently-created courses and programs to assist participants in working through their own institutional context and already-existing campus assets to facilitate a curriculum that prioritizes engaging worldview diversity and interfaith cooperation. Participants looking to improve existing programs or plan new initiatives are all welcome to join.
