Learning Objective: Attendees will connect historical patterns of faith to pedagogical practices in the 20th and 21st century.

Faith-based schools exist with feet in two distinct worlds: the world of education and the world of religious faith. At times, teachers, learners, families, and leaders can feel some degree of tension between the priorities of faith and the priorities of education. This session proposes a way forward through examining some historical ideas of faith and connecting them to the research-based observations of virtual and blended learning. For educators at faith-based schools, this approach may serve to reconcile those potential tensions and provide a pathway for greater purpose and mission-aligned clarity on ways to correlate the needs of faith communities with the demands of an increasingly virtually-accessible world.
