Critical Conversations in Curriculum: Truth, Beauty, Goodness and Unity – Tuesday March 27

Meeting date changed from March 20 to March 27.

Between February and July, Bernard Bull is hosting a monthly conversation for faculty and staff to discuss substantive issues of curriculum.  During this second critical conversation in curriculum, we will use President Ferry’s inaugural speech as a launch pad to discuss the role of truth, beauty, goodness, and unity throughout the University. How do these connect to our mission of helping students develop in mind, body, and spirit? How do these apply across the curriculum? What does it look like to have a University-wide curriculum that is shaped and informed by celebrating and cultivating a value for truth, beauty, goodness, and unity?

Readings for this second session:

Mark your calendar for future Tuesdays: April 24, May 22, June 19 and July 24, all 3:00 to 4:30pm

Critical Conversations in Curriculum on Tuesday February 27

Between February and July, Bernard Bull will be hosting a monthly event to explore critical conversations in curriculum. This is an opportunity for faculty and academic staff to examine and discuss substantive issues about curriculum. This is not about curriculum as an exercise in compliance.

On February 20, we begin with a shared discussion on foundational questions for the series: What is curriculum? What are dominant viewpoints and philosophies about curriculum in higher education? Is there such a thing as a distinctly Christian and/or Lutheran curriculum? How are beliefs and values manifest in a curriculum, and What are the implications for living out Concordia’s distinct mission?

Readings for The first Critical Conversation in Curriculum
