Center for Teaching and Learning

Fruits of Sabbatical

Please join the Center for Teaching and Learning as the university community celebrates the scholarly accomplishments of our faculty returning from sabbatical. This spring we will host evening talks in March and April that are appropriately socially distanced, for professors to discuss their learning over the course of their  sabbatical experience.  Our first evening will pay tribute to the work of Dr. Daniel Burns, Dr. Scott Churchill, and Professor Phil Shore on March 12 ,2021 from 5-6:15 p.m in the Catholic Foundation Boardroom at Cardinal Farrell Hall.

The titles of each presentation are: Dr. Dan Burns, "The Original Meaning of Limited Government: Augustinian Political Thought, Then and Now", Dr. Scott Churchill From ‘the Martin Heidegger Blues’ to ‘Encounters at the End of the World’” " and Professor Phil Shore, “Phenology and Form".
