School of Divinity 1 of 18 seminaries named to
List of Seminaries that Change the World
In November 2013, the Center for Faith and Ser-
vice and Faith3 in Princeton, New Jersey named
eighteen seminaries and divinity schools
as Seminaries that Change the World. The pur-
pose of this new resource is to highlight seminar-
ies and divinity schools that are demonstrating
innovation in theological education in promoting
community engagement and social justice while
preparing the next generation of religious lead-
ers. The School of Divinity was named to this ini-
tial class of seminaries. In its description of the
School of Divinity, Seminaries that Change the
World highlighted, “The School of Divinity takes
seriously the reality of today’s global context and
seeks to mirror that diversity within the student
body and its programs. To meet the needs of an
evolving church and world, the School of Divinity
offers an ecumenical environment where stu-
dents and faculty engage contemporary religious
life with intentionality.”
Online Education’s “High Touch Teaching—
Pedagogy with Technology”
Online Education recently launched “High Touch Teaching
Pedagogy with Technology,” a newsletter focusing on
the use of technology in teaching and learning. High Touch
Teaching - Pedagogy with Technology, dubbed by their
readers as the HTT(P):// in a contest seeking a catchy
name, is to serve as a campaign for promoting the many
resources on campus which can assist faculty in integrating
instructional technologies as part of a specific project, in-
structional unit, or an entire course section.
January's "light issue" focused on Flipping the Classroom,
bringing together multiple departments to cross-promote
resources for flipped instruction through a workshop se-
ries. Mix-and-match offerings from the Teaching and
Learning Center, Online Education, and Information Sys-
tems will allow faculty to select topics relevant to their
needs and goals.

For the first half of FY14, Wake Forest investigators received
over $6.7 million from external sponsors and submitted 73
proposals, requesting over $20 million.
The new internal Pilot Research Grants (PRG) provide seed
funds to develop proposals deemed likely to attract external
funding. They primarily support recently appointed faculty;
those entering a new research area in which they do not
have significant external funding; and scholarly work in disci-
plines for which external support is limited. In all cases, the
goal is to submit a proposal for external funding. The next
deadline is February 21st.
Recipients for fall 2013 were T. Michael Anderson; Kathy
Kron, Biology; Lindsay Comstock, Chemistry; Sandy Dickson,
Communication and Center for Bioethics, Health, and Safety;
Jeff Katula, Health and Exercise Science; Gregory Parks, Law
School; and Luis Roniger, Politics and International Affairs.
The Collaborative Pilot Grants (CPG) program aims to stimu-
late research projects between Wake Forest University
Reynolda Campus faculty and another institution, including
Wake Forest Health Sciences, that will lead to extramural
funding for both institutions. The next deadline is Friday,
March 7th.
