Teaching Quantum Mechanics using Ignatian Pedagogy
MetadataShow full item record
Although the Jesuit ideal of “magis" means in part that a Catholic and Jesuit education should be richer and fundamentally different than a secular education, it has proven difficult to apply the ideals of Ignatian education to science and mathematics courses which are content driven. However, the educational framework of problem/project-based learning (PBL) offers the potential to fully realize and utilize Ignatian pedagogy in the science classroom. This work describes the melding and fusing of PBL and Ignatian pedagogical approaches to truly bring the Jesuit ideal of education to physics courses at Creighton.
