October:

10/11/18 Janet Sisler, Mission & Identity Kindling the Flame, CLC 727 (WTC)

Before we can set the world on fire, is good to examine, reflect upon, and practice using some of the tools St. Ignatius (and our nearly 500 years of Ignatian Tradition) have developed. Let’s spend some time looking at how the Ignatian Pedagogy Paradigm and the Mission Priority Examen mutually inform our practice.

10/24/18 Geoff Swindells, University Libraries Critical Information Literacy Cuneo Hall 410 (LSC)

Information literacy has been defined as “the set of integrated abilities encompassing the reflective discovery of information, the understanding of how information is produced and valued, and the use of information in creating new knowledge and participating ethically in communities of learning” (ACRL 2015). In this workshop, we’ll explore how the Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm can help us incorporate critical information literacy practices in the classroom, encouraging students to discover their own agency as consumers and creators of information.

November:

11/9/18 Seth Green, Quinlan School of Business, Engaging Student in Transformative Education Through IP, CLC 727 (WTC)

This workshop will explore how Ignatian Pedagogy can transform the student experience – allowing students to deeply connect to and reflect on their learning. The workshop will open with an example course that harnessed the power of IP and then spend most of the time speaking with students who have been part of an IP-informed course to hear their insights on how this approach influenced their educational experience.

December:

12/4/18 Patrick Green, Center for Experiential Learning Critical Reflection through the Ignatian Lens Cuneo Hall 410 (LSC)

How do you employ critical reflection throughout crafting learning experiences? In addition to educational theory, the Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm supports and encourages critical reflection. Discussion around critical reflection strategies and resources to support learning through critical reflection will be the focus of this session.

12/12/18 IP Certificate Panel: Stacy Zurek, School of Nursing Cuneo Hall 410 (LSC)

Panel of IP Certificate Alums sharing their experience of incorporating the values of Ignatian Pedagogy in teaching and learning environments. Peer to peer discussions what works best.

January:

1/7/19 Christopher Manning, Department of History and Office of the Provost Cuneo Hall 410 (LSC)

1/24/19 Ann Marie Ryan, FCIP Faculty Fellow 2017, School of Education Context and Experience in the Ignatian Pedagogy Paradigm: Listening to Our Students CLC 727 (WTC)

How might the Ignatian Pedagogy Paradigm support culturally sustaining pedagogies? In this session we will explore the element of context and experience within the Ignatian Pedagogy Paradigm and how it connects with culturally sustaining pedagogies (CSP). CSP are teaching practices that promote and support the cultural identities and heritages of our students as we teach academic content. We will examine those pedagogies and how they also offer a contemporary way of living out the Ignatian mission at Loyola University Chicago.

March:

3/5/19 Michael Murphy, Hank Center for the Catholic Intellectual Heritage What is Catholic Imagination?  Cuneo Hall 410 (LSC)

What is a Catholic imagination? Following St. Augustine, Flannery O’Connor observed “the things of the world pour forth from God in a double way: intellectually into the minds of the angels and physically into the world of things. To the person who believes this (or discerns this—an exercise so central to Ignatian spirituality), the physical, sensible world is good because it proceeds from and dialogs with a divine source. The artist exercising a Catholic imagination penetrates the concrete world in order to find at its depths the image of its source, the image of ultimate reality, the image of God. The beholder of the art follows suit. We will discuss these issues on their own merits and connect to Ignatian spirituality and pedagogy.
