Aligning Conversations: From Seminars to Curricular Reform
Fitz, Raymond; Johnson, Patricia Altenbernd
Journal of Catholic Higher Education, v32 n1 p99-124 Win 2013
The following pages present an account of practices developed at the University of Dayton, a Catholic university in the Marianist tradition, to help faculty more intentionally integrate liberal learning and business education by focusing on ways the Catholic Intellectual Tradition can shape the context in which this integration takes place. The first section describes a series of seminars, looking particularly at how these seminars have led to a focus on "educating for lives of reasoned action." The second section sets out several elements, including practical reasoning and Catholic social thought, that faculty agree are fundamental for educating for this focus. Section three summarizes collaborative structures and practices that have been developed to further curricular revision. The fourth section outlines insights that have been gleaned from this work, including an emerging framework for curricular change. (Contains 3 tables, 1 figure, and 10 footnotes.)
