Science as religion
Welcome to the Science as Religion learning project. This learning project offers learning activities to help us understand the relationship between science and religion.
Concepts to learn include the nature of science and religion.
Summary[edit | edit source]
This learning project uses a seminar format. Participants explore the published literature on this topic then write and discuss their own essays about the relationship between science and religion.
Wikiversity has adopted the "learning by doing" model for education. Lessons should center on learning activities for Wikiversity participants. Learning materials and learning projects can be used by multiple projects. Cooperate with other departments that use the same learning resource.
