Abstract

How much can fourteen undergraduate students learn from a six-week summer course about Islam?

One of the course assignments in a six-week undergraduate Summer course on Islamic Traditions at the University of California, Santa Barbara was for the students to maintain their notes on all aspects of the course as a collaboratively authored living document that would be continually updated and reorganized to present their total understanding of the course topics in the form of a textbook.

Their remarkable final product is presented here, without any significant changes to the content.

This volume offers educators the valuable opportunity to directly perceive what students took away from an introductory undergraduate course on Islam. How did the students understand the assigned readings? What topics did students engage with most enthusiastically, and why? What expermental teaching styles were employed in the course, and how effective were they as means to support the learning objectives of the course?

Collaboratively authored by Sean Knight, Trent Davidson, Paul Pineda, Thao Nguyen, Anthony Khoa A. Tran, Leslie J.Acero, Sara Moretti, Alexandra Kineret, Blake Keane, Mingfei Xu, Afreen Chaus, Ramzi Bekeri, Kaitlyn Woodward, and Aniela Grych.

Edited by Brendan Newlon.

Forewords by Ahmad Atif Ahmad, Ovamir Anjum, Jamaal Diwan, and Suheil Laher.
