How can Jesuit spirituality serve as a bridge for undergraduate and graduate students to serve the common good in professional life? How is the Catholic and Jesuit tradition a resource to realize cross-disciplinary learning goals? How can educators at Georgetown become more aware of the transformation that occurs in students and in themselves?

This workshop will address these questions by introducing teaching methodologies inspired by Jesuit values and practices, particularly individual and group reflection, that can be used in a variety of class settings. Based in part on the inaugural offering of “Jesuit Values in Professional Practice,” a Community-Based Learning elective offered at the School of Continuing Studies for the first time in fall 2016, this session will provide a brief overview of the Jesuit approach to education, share teaching lessons from “Jesuit Values in Professional Practice,” and provide encouragement and tools for incorporating Jesuit values in courses across the campus. Participants will walk away with practical insights about how to go beyond academic mastery to form students who lead lives of meaning and purpose. This session is especially useful for anyone who wants to know more about Georgetown’s Jesuit mission and identity and its broad applicability.
