Faith-Praxis Integration in Research Design and Statistics
Rosemead School of Psychology
Doing integration in research and statistics oriented courses presents unique challenges to faculty. The content of these courses seems far removed from the integration of faith and learning as generally understood in the literature. Faith-praxis integration provides an overarching vision that rises above the content of a given course and impacts many aspects of the educational process for both the faculty member and the student. Developing expertise in research skills becomes a spiritual exercise that has import for the student's motivations, goals and character. For faculty, faith-praxis integration carries implications for how their faith can be lived out in their courses. It will affect interactions with students outside of class as well.
