Faculty Center for Ignatian Pedagogy

Ignatian Pedagogy Certificate

The Ignatian Pedagogy (IP) Certificate program is a series of seminars, workshops and related assignments designed for Loyola educators to learn about Ignatian values and pedagogical approaches.

Over the course of the certificate program, participants will deepen their knowledge, skill, and ability to integrate Ignatian Pedagogy into their teaching and work while building community with a cohort of colleagues undertaking the same endeavor.

Topics will include history and philosophy of Jesuit education and Ignatian Pedagogy, Ignatian Pedagogy’s intersection with student centered and anti-oppressive teaching approaches, and applications of IP, how LUC colleagues use IP in their teaching and work, among others.

Skill development will include applying aspects of IP to work and teaching, reflecting on your learning about IP individually and in community, and developing ways to continue to enhance your learning about IP.

The program will run from September ‘22 - May ‘23, culminating in a symposium of final projects. To successfully complete the program, participants must 

  • attend (1) cohort gathering in the fall and (2) cohort gatherings in the spring,
  • attend (5) 90-minute seminars,
  • complete two formative assessments
  • complete a final project, and
  • review readings and videos about IP in preparation for cohort gatherings, Seminars, and assignments

Seminars and gatherings will be offered simultaneously in-person and on Zoom to accommodate participants across all LUC’s campuses. Recordings of Seminars may be available to those who cannot attend.

Registration for the 2022-23 Ignatian Pedagogy Certificate Program is now closed.
