The purpose of this colloquy is to cultivate the scholarship of teaching among religion and theology faculty in colleges, universities, seminaries and divinity schools. The colloquy will gather a small group of experienced and critically reflective teachers for an extended process of writing and conversation about the scholarship of teaching and learning. The colloquy involves a week in the summer of 2014, a pre-conference session at the 2014 AAR & SBL Annual meetings, and a three-day weekend in April 2015.

Participants will work on their own article length manuscript through the course of the colloquy, engage in peer review, and converse about writing this genre. Participants will complete assignments before each session, and produce a completed manuscript by the April 2015 meeting.

Colloquy Goals:

  • To support through a collaborative process each participant’s completion of a manuscript in the scholarship of teaching in theology and religion
  • To create and sustain a cooperative cohort of authors in the scholarship of teaching and learning
  • To support each other through each individual’s process to conceive, draft, refine, and complete a publishable manuscript
  • To continue the conversation about marks of quality in the scholarship of teaching and learning in theology and religion and to help Teaching Theology & Religion refine its standards of quality and communicate them clearly to potential authors
  • To strengthen the network of scholars involved with Teaching Theology & Religion

Participants will receive a stipend of $2,000 for full participation in three sessions, plus local expenses and travel to all sessions. We are prevented from paying stipends to participants who are teaching in the U.S. under an H-1B visa.
