Reflection

In the Reflection section, JHE publishes scholarly/literary articles of inspiration, aspiration and motivation. While educators so easily can be consumed by duties, details and deadlines, the opportunity and value cannot be overestimated of raising the eyes a little from the path below our feet to look at a broader horizon.

Scholarship

As a scholarly online journal, the “Scholarship” section of JHE constitutes the core of this publication. It presents peer-reviewed articles on a wide range to topics germane to the special and in some cases unique qualities of Jesuit higher education. “Scholarship” covers a broad scope of writing, from data gathering and analysis, to professional reflection and critique, to theory and philosophy, studies of history, studies based on literature review, and advances in teaching and learning in higher education. It covers what Frederick E. Crowe, S.J. has termed, “the way of achievement and the way of heritage,” and what Bernard Lonergan, S.J. described for theology (and we suggest for all of scholarship) as “the ongoing interplay in human history of tradition and innovation.”

Praxis

The “Praxis” section presents articles, not peer reviewed, that focus more on the practice of teaching and the experience of learning. These articles represent dimensions of professional discourse rooted in the world of theory but engaged in the activities of the academy. Theologian, David Tracy, S.J., explains that, “any proper understanding of praxis demands some form of authentic personal involvement and/or commitment.” Argentinian theologian, José Bonino, suggests praxis is not merely the application of theory (whether secular or theological) but that it engages theory, and perhaps transforms it from a basis in the real world of lived experience. Accordingly, articles appearing in “Praxis” are not of a “lower” order that those of “Scholarship” but rather are parallel, bring to the conversation questions for Jesuit higher education rooted in the real-world experience of teaching and learning. In order to encourage the conversation and expand its scope, JHE does not submit these articles to the more rigorous process of peer review where literature review and theoretical critique may at times restrict dialogue.
