"Professor Brower said professors at Wisconsin emphasized that students must “read for knowledge and write with the goal of exploring ideas.”

This informal mission statement, along with special seminars for freshmen, is intended to help “re-teach students about what education is.”

The seminars are integrated into introductory courses. Examples include the conventional, like a global-warming seminar, and the more obscure, like physics in religion." http://www.nytimes.com/2009/02/18/education/18college.html

Aaron M. Brower is the Vice Provost for Teaching & Learning and Professor, School of Social Work; Harold C. Bradley Faculty Fellow.

Does anyone know anything about what the seminar on physics in religion is?
