Ignatian Pedagogy Certificate Program

The Ignatian Pedagogy Certificate program is a year-long series of workshops for Loyola Chicago faculty and staff, designed to touch on each aspect of the Ignatian pedagogical paradigm. Over the course of the certificate program, participants will learn how to enhance and deepen their own pedagogy while becoming versed in the rich 500 year-old tradition of Ignatian pedagogy. Seminars will begin in late September 2019 and continue through April 2020. Seminars will be held on campus but will be simulcast on Zoom for remote participation.

Participants are expected to attend, either in person or via Zoom, four of the seven seminars, as well as the two mandatory Introduction to Ignatian Pedagogy sessions lead by Jose Mesa, S.J.
