Toward Meaningful Learning: Reconnecting Faith and Civic Action in Higher Education
Laboe, Mark; Nass, Karl
Journal of College and Character, v13 n2 May 2012
The authors explore ways that faith and a commitment to social justice can be integrated into learning in higher education today. They also seek to highlight six foundational insights emerging from the proceedings of the National Faith, Justice, and Civic Learning (NFJCL) conference related to the importance of effectively reintegrating the perspectives and practices of faith traditions and communities into higher education and emerging public discourse. The article provides a brief reflection on today's societal context, followed by recommendations for how practitioners and educators might foster such meaningful learning within the academy. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
