Goals for Attendees

Presenter goals for the Learning Teaching Forum presentation: Share the holistic approach to learning throughout the Chaminade Scholars program Provide an experiential example of students’ capstone project that incorporates vocation exploration and reflection Mission/project goals students set for their legacy project (excerpted from their mini grant proposal, 2018.19) The name of our vocational project is “Hidden Gems”. Throughout our time at the University of Dayton, we have each discovered a variety of hidden gems as we have explored the city of Dayton, also known as Gem City. In fact, by exploring vocation throughout our times as Chaminade Scholars we have found gems within ourselves and our calls. The mission of our project is to engage in conversation and interviews with students and professors of various fields, faith backgrounds, and levels of professional experience in order to understand how individuals . . perceive vocation and have incorporated vocational discernment or contemplation within their unique journeys. We plan to collect these stories and present them to the larger University of Dayton community to inspire others to consider how vocation functions in their own personal story and begin to discern their own callings. By utilizing the knowledge of our professors and peers, we will be able to capture an interdisciplinary understanding of vocation, which may appeal to a wider audience of people on the University of Dayton campus. . . the mission of Hidden Gems is to create spaces and deliverables that invite the University of Dayton community to participate in dialogue and thought about vocation.
