I sent this to the list a couple of years ago and got a few responses then.
Now I'm really going to be teaching this course (at least it's on the
schedule for next year), and so I need to put together a proposal due early
October to the University Gen Ed committee. I downloaded some sample
courses from the Templeton site. In addition to my questions about texts
and syllabi, I'm curious if there are still grants/workshops out there on
how to teach a course in science and religion. Any ideas?
