A Christian Field Guide to Technology
for Engineers and Designers
A Christian Field Guide to Technology for Engineers and Designers was written to be a suitable companion text for perspectival content in introductory and capstone courses in engineering and technology.
If you are faculty member using this book in your classes, here are some resources which may be helpful:
- slides for the use with the book (coming)
- diagram of the modal aspects introduced in chapter 4
- Figure 4.2 (by Julo/Blueshade via Wikimedia Commons with inset image and editing by Jamin Ver Velde)
- additional discussion questions
The following are some sample syllabi of "perspectival" captsone courses (some of which make use of this book). These syllabi are being shared to provide examples of ideas and approaches that have been used for capstone courses in CS and engineering at Christian colleges and universities.
New faculty members in computing or engineering may find this letter to a young professor a helpful encouragement. In addition, here are some recommended readings for new faculty.
Ideally, perspectival courses are part of a vital core curriculum which can help establish a Christian perspective and an inter-disciplinary foundation for students.
Finally, how does an instructor actually connect faith and technology in the classroom? Here is a paper entitled "Approaches to Christian Education: From Elusive Towards a Larger and Deeper Approach" which explores different approaches using examples taken from the field of computer technology.
