Christian Friendship as Faculty Development: A Narrative Account
Phelps, Matthew P.; Waalkes, Scott
Journal of Education & Christian Belief, v13 n2 p125-139 2009
In this article we offer a narrative account of three faculty development groups on one campus: an interdisciplinary summer reading group, a writers group, and a spiritual formation group. Grounded in the literature on Christian friendship, the narrative testifies to the development, characteristics, and impact of these groups. We conclude that communities of Christian friendship are a significant source and locale of faculty development. (Contains 5 notes and a bibliography.)
