Faith Traditions in Pedagogy Mikeal Parsons (Religion) Patricia Killen (Pacific Lutheran University) In this session we will share findings from a grant project that tested the connection between theological heritages and teaching practice. This work was part of an exploration of a larger question: Does grounding questions of heritage, identity, and mission in the central work of teaching and learning offer a fruitful standpoint for rethinking identity and mission in the current context of higher education and the on-going changes in religious identity and belonging in the United States? We concluded that the work of teaching and learning is a fruitful place from which to initiate conversations about their respective institutionsâ€™ theological heritage, identity, and school mission. We invite participants to consider the possible implications for pedagogy and institutional identity at a place like Baylor.
