The Benedictine Pedagogy Conference provides a venue by which faculty, staff and administrators can share ideas and practices by which they have successfully integrated the Ten Hallmarks developed by the Association of Benedictine Colleges and Universities in the classroom, student life, and collegiate environment.
The conference addresses a range of critically important themes that impact the changes within our institutions relating to the maintenance and well-being of the unique Benedictine charism of our founding fathers and sisters today. The conference is typically hosted by a different Benedictine college or university from year to year. Presenters are among the faculty, staff and administrators of our institutions.
We are inviting proposals for presentations and poster sessions, and accepting applications for workshop participation.
The goal of the Benedictine Pedagogy Conference is to help faculty and staff at Catholic Benedictine institutions find ways to enrich the workplace by empowering them through information and tools to better serve the University mission and, as a consequence, enrich the student experience.
- Connecting the Hallmarks with their Catholic Roots
- Hospitality and Living/Working in Community
