Faith and Learning in Higher Education: Merging the Bible with Discipline-Specific Content
Richardson, Gregory D.
Journal of Research on Christian Education, v28 n1 p51-70 2019
This article offers a brief history on the origin of universities, summarizes how faith shaped higher education from the European university's advent to its Western reproduction, and presents recommendations from a contemporary faith integration method employed in many faith-based universities in the United States. Response to intervention was used to direct two examples of faith integration performed for 14 candidates enrolled in a teacher preparation program. The study advocates the instruction, modeling, and practicum elements of faith integration in curricula that provide postsecondary instructors with valuable insight to develop proficiency in the art of merging biblical content with discipline-specific content.
