Long, Jeffery D. – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2018
Site visits provide an irreplaceable learning experience to students in both religious studies and the emerging field of interfaith studies.

Bruehler, Bart B. – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2018
Many courses in higher education rely on the hierarchical organization of Bloom's taxonomy to categorize and sequence learning. Introductory courses on scripture often emphasize remembering content and background as a basis for applying the sacred text to one's life. However, a review of the literature demonstrates little support for the widely…

Cornwall, Susannah – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2018

Gravett, Emily O. – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2018
One of the most illuminating finds in Barbara E. Walvoord's "Teaching and Learning in College Introductory Religion Courses" (2008) is what she calls "the great divide," a mismatch between instructors' goals for their courses, which are academic, and the students' reasons for taking them, which relate to their personal…

Troftgruben, Troy M. – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2018
The field of biblical studies lends itself well to decentered online learning--a kind that uses active learning to engage primary texts and their interpretations. Not only does such an approach work well in online and hybrid formats, it more readily welcomes readings that are more contextual, constructive, and collaborative. Three aspects best…

Duperon, Matthew – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2018

Ricker, Aaron; Peterfeso, Jill; Zubko, Katherine C.; Yoo, William; Blanchard, Kate – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2018
In our ostensibly secular age, discussing the real-world contexts and impacts of religious traditions in the classroom can be difficult. Religious traditions may appear at different times to different students as too irrelevant, too personal, or too inflammatory to allow them to engage openly with the materials, the issues, and each other. In this…

Understanding by Design provides a framework by which to determine the best possible places for instructor- and…

Zeller, Benjamin E. – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2018
This article considers the "create your own religion" or "fictive religion" assignment as a pedagogical tool, contextualizing it within the scholarship of teaching and learning, and positioning it as a tool for broad adoption in a variety of courses. I argue that we ought to conceptualize the fictive religion assignment as an…
