Religion Lab (401)

Religion Lab is a learner-centered class. There are three components to this course: religion, analytic theme, and mode of presentation. For each of these components we will compile a comprehensive list; that is, a list of religions (from American-Indian religions to Zoroastrianism), a list of analytical themes (from archeology to womanism), and a list of modes by which students will present their work (from an annotated bibliography to the creation of a digital narrative on Youtube). The course is divided into three modules of equal length, and each student will choose a new religion, theme, and mode of presentation for each of them. Class time will be spent on organization, preparation, collaboration, and presentation: there are no lectures. The goals of this course are to enable individual inquiry, foster critical thinking about culturally important and often sensitive subjects, and develop proficiency in several methods of educational expression.
