A Student-Faculty Collaborative Journey toward Transformative Religious and Secular Worldview Literacy
Gardner, Ryan S.
FIRE: Forum for International Research in Education, v5 n1 p126-144 2019
This article presents the process and results of an action research project conducted during collaboration between one professor and seven students as they worked on designing a course to help students at a religiously owned and sponsored university become "religiously literate" persons, as described by the American Academy of Religion. The new course has been designed to enhance students' public service, increase professional effectiveness, and enrich their private lives. Administrators, faculty, and students in similar contexts will hopefully see in this report how such efforts can create a transformative educational space that helps students become leaders in a world where religious diversity is understood, protected, and respected.
