Engaging Faith Series

Teaching is a noble profession (pardon the cliché). Is teaching a sacred profession?  How do our faith commitments shape our interactions with students? How do we fulfill Baylor’s Pro Ecclesia calling in the classroom?  To explore these and related questions, the Institute for Faith and Learning and the Academy for Teaching and Learning are pleased to continue our monthly faculty luncheon series titled, “Engaging Faith:  Teaching and Learning at Baylor.” Participation for each seminar is limited to the first 15 registrants. Lunch will be provided courtesy of the IFL and ATL. Fall seminar topics and registration information appear below.
