Applications from higher education research to Bahá’í practice: deepening, action, and reflection

Higher education research provides extensive resources on learning and teaching in preparation for professional, civic and personal lives. This scholarship provides a critical opportunity for collaboration in the continuing development of Bahá’í scholarship in studies of text and practice, interfaith service, and community participation. Four research areas—balancing content and learner experience, co-construction of knowledge (teachers/learners), learning from reflection and personal narratives, and embracing diversity—are examined with program applications in the Bahá’í community.
