Promoting pedagogy, learning and educational leadership from an integrally Christian perspective.
The Kuyers Institute promotes Christian reflection on every aspect of education, from pre-kindergarten to the college level. We conduct and publish research, develop new approaches and resources, and provide training for educators in many countries and educational settings.
Christian Faith and STEM Teaching
- Inspired by David I. Smith's book On Christian Teaching, STEM faculty members consider how Christian faith can inform not only the content of our teaching, but also our pedagogical choices. What challenges were posed for them as Christian teachers? How are they attempting to answer them in their teaching? Join us Thursday, October 12, 3:00-5:00 PM. Find more information about the panelists and how to register here.

What does faith have to do with civics education?
- How can we affirm truth, nurture faith, and still live well in society amid deep differences? Explore free lesson plans for teaching civic engagement grounded in the practice of Christian hospitality.
- A fresh approach to assessing the impact of Christian education. A joint project by the Kuyers Institute and Cardus Education, the Practicing Faith Survey offers reliable tools and valid data that show how students’ daily learning practices relate to their faith formation.
International Journal of Christianity & Education
- The International Journal of Christianity & Education aims to be the first point of reference for academic discussions of the relationship between Christianity and educational theory and practice in formal and informal settings. It publishes high quality articles across a wide range of educational contexts, including but not limited to primary, secondary, and tertiary educational institutions.
Several university professors describe and reflect on their efforts to allow historic Christian practices to reshape and redirect their pedagogical strategies.
Whether allowing spiritually formative reading to enhance a literature course, employing table fellowship and shared meals to reinforce concepts in a pre-nursing nutrition course, or using Christian hermeneutical practices to interpret data in an economics course, these teacher-authors envision ways of teaching and learning that are rooted in the rich tradition of Christian practices, as together they reconceive classrooms and laboratories as vital arenas for faith and spiritual growth.
