Faculty Update: Elizabeth Drescher and Phillip Boo Riley

Elizabeth Drescher and Philip Boo Riley have been awarded a $30,000 grant from the Wabash Center for Teaching & Learning in Religion & Theology for a yearlong collaborative consultation with congregational practitioners from Silicon Valley churches and journalists from Religion News Service aimed at developing a collaborative pedagogy of living religions for a media rich, digitally-integrated, religiously diverse world. The project seeks creative ways to bring the language and logic of new media into classrooms and congregations while also enriching the theological depth of reporting on religion as it is lived in congregational communities and the lives of undergraduates.
