Ignatian Collaboration Center
The moderated Ignatian Collaboration Center can be used by all full-time and adjunct faculty in creating new or redesigned courses. The goal of the Collaboration Center is to provide an Ignatian pedagogical framework and the support necessary for faculty to design and produce a fully deliverable course within a given time-frame. The Collaboration Center showcases exemplary completed portfolios developed by faculty at AJCU schools as models of excellence. It fully integrates course design and production into one framework, ensuring the highest quality of online education. Jesuit universities across the globe have participated in the Ignatian Collaboration Center:
EXAMPLE 1: In Fall 2012, JesuitNET Global hosted faculty from Gonzaga University, Wheeling Jesuit University, Fordham University, and Xavier Mumbai University in the Ignatian Collaboration Center to create new courses in social work, communication, leadership, and sociology.
EXAMPLE 2: Jesuit Commons: Higher Education at the Margins (JC:HEM) uses the Ignatian Collaboration Center to redesign donated courses from multiple universities to ensure that the course is using the Ignatian pedagogical approach and is culturally relevant. Participants in the redesign process include faculty from across the network combined with experts on-ground to ensure the curriculum is relevant to students.
