  • INVESTIGATING FACTORS INFLUENCING STUDENTS’ LEARNING IN A TEAM TEACHING SETTING

    Brenda L Killingsworth; Yajiong Xue (Association for the Development of Science, Engineering and Education, 2015-12-01)
    Team teaching factors, including mission clarity, affiliation, innovativeness, and fairness, are examined to determine how they influence student learning in a team-taught course. The study involved 184 college students enrolled in an Introduction to Computers course delivered in a team-taught format in a large university located in the United States. The collaborative teaching design followed a traditional team teaching approach with an instructor team teaching the same course collaboratively. Students enrolled in the team-taught course filled out an online survey targeted at identifying key factors that influence student-based outcomes (satisfaction and competency) in the course. Results showed that instructor team mission clarity, affiliation, and fairness are significantly related to students’ satisfaction while instructor team mission clarity and fairness are significantly related to students’ competency.

  • Gabriele Malagrida, migrante per la fede. Da Como all’Amazzonia al rogo di Lisbona

    Fabbri, Maurizio (2021)
    Nel Portogallo dell’Illuminismo si consuma lo scontro cruento tra Regalismo e Compagnia di Gesù con il sacrificio di Gabriele Malagrida, giovane gesuita lombardo che, missionario in Amazzonia, converte, allestisce collegi e seminari, fa miracoli. Richiamato a Lisbona subirà le peggiori torture giudicato colpevole di tradimento, di eresia e di sedizione per aver cercato di dar vita ad uno Stato autonomo teocratico. The Tragic Fate of Gabriele Malagrida, God’s Migrant. From Como to the Amazon and back to the Lisbon FireIn Portugal the bloody clash between regalism and the Society of Jesus during the Enlightenment led to the tragic killing of Gabriele Malagrida, a young Lombard Jesuit who was sent as a missionary to the Amazon where he converted the indigenes, set up boarding schools and seminaries and worked miracles. Called back to Lisbon, he suffered atrocious tortures, was declared guilty of treason, heresy, and sedition for having tried to create an autonomous theocratic state and burned at the stake.

  • Concerning Ecclesiology: Four Barriers Preventing Insider Movement Contextualization from Producing Biblical Churches

    Bennett, Matthew A. (DigitalCommons@Cedarville, 2020-04-23)
    Contextualization is a topic of utmost importance in the field of missiology. Over the past several years, the missiological world has debated the merits of one particular approach to contextualization known as the Insider Movement (IM). While much of the discussion has focused on issues of soteriology, hermeneutics, theology of religions, and evangelism, this article intends to assess the potential for IM strategies to produce biblically faithful churches. By leaning on the writings of IM advocates and the recent publication of Jan Prenger’s dissertation, Muslim Insider Christ Followers, one can compare IM strategies along with the testimony of insiders themselves with biblical teaching regarding the church. In order to avoid the accusation of historical, doctrinal, or extra-biblical imposition on the biblical teaching of the church, the common historical marks of the church have not been selected as the criteria for assessment. Instead, four biblical passages containing teaching about the church have been selected drive this exploration exegetically: (1) the church built upon the common recognition of Jesus as the awaited Messiah and Son of God; (2) the church as local, identifiable, gatherable, and responsible body of believers; (3) the church as a pillar and buttress of the truth; and (4) the church as an indiscriminate gathering of gospel-professing and communally covenanted believers. Upon considering the texts that drive these four elements of biblical churches, one confronts several barriers that often attend IM strategies. If such barriers are not removed by IM proponents, this article concludes that it is unlikely that they can produce healthy and biblically faithful churches.
