Webinar Course on Science, Christianity, and Society, 2020-21
SCIO’s Webinar Course on Science, Christianity, and Society represents a new, webinar-based approach to teaching and learning about science’s intersections with broader societal forces, and especially its interactions with Christianity. Two cohorts — the first composed of early career faculty members from member institutions of the CCCU and the second, selected postdoctoral researchers at the University of Oxford — will join leading scholars to examine the larger social and cultural contexts within which science is located, and to reflect on specific intersections between science and those contexts.

Oxford Interdisciplinary Seminars in Science and Religion: Bridging the Two Cultures of Science and the Humanities II, 2017–19.
Building on the success of Bridging the Two Cultures I, SCIO offered a follow-up programme for a new cohort 25 faculty members from CCCU institutions and other faith-based institutions, including those in Latin America and Africa. Funded by the Templeton Religion Trust and The Blankemeyer Foundation with grants of c.$2 million, the programme focused on enhancing the development of faculty members and serving the broader academic communities which they represent. Faculty Participants explored Science and Religion issues in the unique setting of Oxford, developing interdisciplinary skills central to the field. The programme helped train a new generation of leaders in Science and Religion, providing mentoring for student researchers, encouraging broader student engagement, and expanding the conversations to include key campus leaders (presidents, provosts, chief student development officers, and chaplains).
