The Soundings Project

The Soundings Project aims to support the common work of the Christian university and the church, namely to help people lead lives of purpose and significance. To this end, Baylor will serve as an innovation hub for fourteen Texas congregations as the university and congregational leaders together reflect theologically and practically about the nature of vocation.

Faith, Learning, and Online Education at Baylor
As Baylor faculty, we are entrusted with a special mission. For us, excellent teaching always has been about helping students to learn more than just the content of a course. We also hope that our students will learn to seek wisdom, and thus live with meaning and purpose according to their God-given vocation (or calling). The commitments of the Christian faith are not add-ons for a place like Baylor. Instead, since 1845, faith has animated teaching and learning. The present global health crisis and our swift transition to online education compel us to ask a new question: how might faith animate teaching and learning online?
