John Leland Center for Theological Studies

Over a period of twelve months, Leland will revise two required courses, Spiritual Formation and Philosophy of Religion, by incorporating neuroscience in our understanding of formation and by exploring how scientific ideas and discoveries have shaped theological and philosophical thought. We will also review other courses to see how science might enrich these courses.  In addition, the grant will help strengthen faculty pedagogy. Experts from neuroscience, educational psychology, and technology will offer workshops for our faculty to enhance the educational experience of Leland students.
