Fahs Collaborative Curriculum Incubators gather experienced educators to grow a seed of an idea into a full and useful learning encounter, or create new curricular strategies for solving stubborn faith formation challenges. Members of the incubator teams are invited to join projects that match their skill-set, disposition, and experience of breaking social molds.

The first Curriculum Incubator was commissioned by the Unitarian Universalist College of Social Justice (UUCSJ), which needed an educational tool to support learners steeped in US cultural norms. The curriculum, UUCSJ Study Guide for Cross-Cultural Engagement, is designed for people engaged in cross-cultural service learning encounters in and outside the United States. 

Religious workers and organizations are encouraged to engage our corps of educational theorists, problem solvers, and curriculum writers. Currently, incubators are designing:

  • Creating Theology Together: a program to support shared congregational learning around UU identity, theology, and community.  
  • UUA Empowerment Controversy Revisited: an experiential discussion guide for Rev. Dr. Mark Morrison-Reed’s book that chronicles major moments regarding the presence and experience of African Americans in Unitarianism, Universalism, and Unitarian Universalism.  
  • Gathering Our Selves: A Faith Formation Invocation for People of Color: a body of spiritual exercises that supports people of color healing from the wounds of racism, building on the Fahs Lecture Dr. Mark Hicks gave in 2011.   

Do you have a great idea you need help developing into a full-fledged curriculum or learning experience? Contact the Assistant Director of the Fahs Collaborative for more information, or to discuss details on scheduling and pricing.
