2016 CBFA Dialogical Conference
Wisdom and Peace in the Profession and Classroom
February 26, 2016 - San Diego, CA
Scripture: James 3:17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without a trace of partiality or hypocrisy.
The CBFA Dialogical Conference advances the strategic goals of the CBFA through faculty development in classroom faith integration and scholarship. A dialogical conference turns upside down€ť the activities of a traditional professional conference through the organic construction of knowledge and collaboration. A dialogical approach to faith integration achieves a convergence between biblical texts and discipline-specific knowledge using faculty dialogue and contemplation. High-impact learning and shared meaning is created by a group of faculty who complete required preparation prior to the conference, interact during the conference guided by carefully designed activities around a central biblical passage, and actively engage in a fast, free flowing, learning environment. Take-aways from this approach include new classroom exercises deeply bounded in scripture and critically analyzed by other professors, which integrate faith into business disciplinary content and new ideas for faith integration scholarship.
