Provost Contributes to Book on Adult Learning
Friday, 28 May 2010
Provost Liz Rudenga has contributed to a new book featuring best practices in faith integration.
Best Practices in the Integration of Faith and Learning for Adult and Online Learners uncovers practical models of faith-based teaching in adult higher education programs, according to the editors. Born out of a brainstorming meeting hosted by the new CCCU Center for Research in Adult Learning, the book is a collection of chapters written by representatives from various college adult programs.
Before becoming Provost, Rudenga taught in K-12 schools for several years and then in Trinity’s education department for over 15 years, teaching both in the traditional and adult studies degree completion programs.
While teaching Introduction to Exceptional Children in the adult studies program, Rudenga wrote about an approach that could be adapted for many courses. Rudenga invited the students to try on a variety of unique glasses then discuss what they saw through the lenses and emblematically what difference that perspective would make in their teaching.
