Lamb, Lisa – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2019
Many early efforts at teaching preaching online incurred disastrous losses in quality. Revamped versions now claim to meet, and in some areas even exceed, classroom learning effectiveness, with potentially significant gains for students from non-dominant cultures.

Jones Medine, Carolyn M.; Penner, Todd; Lehman, Marjorie – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2015

Clingerman, Forrest; O'Brien, Kevin J. – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2015
The undergraduate study of religion is predominantly undertaken by non-majors who are meeting a general education requirement.

Gravett, Emily O. – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2015
This essay presents Moses, the protagonist of the biblical books of Exodus and Deuteronomy in the Hebrew Bible, as a playful but generative metaphor for current teaching practices and experiences in higher education, including my own.
