Our most hands-on, sequential event, Spirit & Craft of Teaching in the Liberal Arts Tradition immerses teachers in the theory and practice of Catholic liberal arts pedagogy. The program is designed for both new and veteran teachers who are unfamiliar with Catholic liberal arts education, but it is open to all who desire to learn more. The program size is limited to allow for maximum personal attention; participants prepare and present lessons and receive feedback. Due to the limited size of the program, the number of registrants from each school is limited to three.
The program begins on Monday with check-in beginning at 1 p.m. and the opening session beginning at 3 p.m. The program concludes on Friday around noon. Please note: By registering, participants confirm that they will attend this program in its entirety. Since the content provided is integrated and sequential, it is important to not arrive late, depart early, or skip sessions.
