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.

Riswold, Caryn D. – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2015

Karapanagiotis, Nicole – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2015
In this essay, I examine the following pedagogical question: how can we unlock students' mistaken notions that religious "traditions" are monoliths, and instead help them to recognize, puzzle over, and appreciate the complex multiplicity and vibrant set of doctrinal and ritual conversations that characterize religious traditions?

Siegler, Elijah – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2015
After illustrating the joys of teaching religious studies abroad with an anecdote from my trip to China, I warn of some of its inherent pedagogical and ethical challenges.

Wiseman, Wendy A. – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2015
Reflecting on two study abroad trips to New Zealand in 2005 and 2007, I suggest in this essay that it is possible to mitigate the risk of (American or European) students recapitulating imperial attitudes through development of a rigorous curriculum focusing on the legacies of colonialism, institutional racism, and the somewhat dubious phenomenon…

Gubkin, Liora – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2015
A commitment to empathetic understanding shaped the field of religious studies; although subject to critique, it remains an important teaching practice where students are charged with the task of recognizing, and perhaps even appreciating, a worldview that appears significantly different from their own.
