College Composition and Biblical Worldview: Redesigning College Composition with the Biblical Foundation Course Design Model
Like their counterparts in elementary and secondary education, Seventh-day Adventist educators at the tertiary level have been challenged by their administrators to integrate faith and learning. Implementation on an instructional level has focused on teaching/learning strategies based upon biblical narratives, themes, or principles that are relevant to a particular lesson or unit of instruction. While these activities can impact students, they fail to integrate faith into the course content itself. This paper is a report of a landmark study in which a college composition course was redesigned using a course design model that fuses faith and learning by utilizing a biblical conceptual framework in which the core course concept is a bridge between a biblical worldview and the subject matter. This study can have application to courses across the spectrum of disciplines in tertiary faith-based institutions.
