Faith and Learning Integration

Developed in cooperation with Indiana Wesleyan University (IWU), the course offers CCCU institutions an interactive way for faculty to better understand how to integrate their faith into their teaching.


In November of 2012, the Council launched the Faith and Learning Integration Channel, a peer-reviewed online video archive. It features CCCU faculty modeling classroom strategies for integrating faith and learning across the disciplines, providing both an opportunity for faculty development and a potential resource for instructional content.


This new course offers a broad base of faith integration topics divided into four modules: the history and culture of Christian higher education, the academic vocation of the teacher-scholar, the integration of faith and learning, and moral development. Each module is divided into five sessions and includes a mixture of video, session summary readings, audio recordings of the summaries and questions for discussion. There is also a set of discussion blogs faculty can use to facilitate discussion.


Six CCCU authors collaborated on the course content, including: Perry L. Glanzer, professor of educational administration and educational foundations at Baylor University; Douglas Jacobsen, professor of church history and theology at Messiah College; Rhonda Hustedt Jacobsen, professor of psychology and director of faculty development at Messiah College; Todd C. Ream, professor of higher education at Taylor University; William Ringenberg, professor of history at Taylor University; and Susan VanZanten, professor of English at Seattle Pacific University.
