Supporting Excellence in Learning and Innovative Pedagogy

Learning rarely occurs in isolation; therefore, you are invited to join with your colleagues (and students) in one or more Formative Learning Communities.  The relationship between education and formation is rooted in our Jesuit pedagogical paradigm.  Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm consists of: Context, Experience, Reflection, Action, and Evaluation.  Originally expressed by St. Ignatius of Loyola, Peter Felten and colleagues have recently applied "formative development of the whole person" to education outside the traditional Jesuit context, in their book, Transformative Conversations: A Guide to Mentoring Communities Among Colleagues in Higher Education.  What they have discovered is a long-held truth: all education is formation. In essence, the Center works to empower educators as agents of transformative learning.

Programs are facilitated by Faculty Associates, who develop and deliver university-wide programming each academic year for Creighton University faculty and staff.  The faculty associates become part of the Creighton community of faculty scholars and staff interested in building and engaging a culture of assessment and learner-centered teaching.  New associates will be supported in their role and programming efforts.  Learn more about the faculty associate program and program history. | View Teaching and Learning Connections Newsletter.
