Course Feature
  • NEW UNIT FOR 2020 This unit is related (but not sequential) to the unit: Ignatian Pedagogy: A Contemporary Vision (being offered in Semester 1, 2020)
Class Description

DS9401J / DR9401J is the face-to-face class

DS9409J / DR9409J is the online class (Online students will be able to view the lectures within 48 hours after the intensive week, with recordings available on ARK).


This unit will explore the implications of the Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm for future orientations in Jesuit education. The defining elements of Ignatian Pedagogy (Reflection and Action) will be examined through the concept of Refractive Learning – that is, learning to ‘bend’ content so that it is appropriated for one’s own unique experience and context as well as learning from the best practice of other Jesuit schools throughout the world. The proposed model is Learner-Centered, Reflection-Driven, and Action-Oriented. The unit will enable practitioners to reflect on, and wrestle with, Jesuit pedagogical concepts and theories so that Jesuit schools can offer a genuinely transformative and holistic education that is relevant to the twenty-first century and capable of being adapted for future paradigm shifts.


LEARNING OUTCOMES

Upon successful completion of this unit, it is expected that students will be able to:

  1. Articulate the close connection between Ignatian pedagogy and the Spiritual Exercises
  2. Define and critically evaluate the core concepts and values of Refractive Learning
  3. Apply knowledge of the core characteristics of Refractive Learning to specific ministry and vocational contexts
  4. Evaluate the implications of Learner-centered, Reflection-driven, and Action-Oriented learning and teaching for educational practices
  5. Formulate a reasoned vision for future possibilities and trends in Jesuit education
