aul aulknerz eacher of the Year 1 V71 ood teaching goes beyond ex- J plaining facts and figures, said 'aul Faulkner, professor of Bible and irector of the Institute of Marriage Nnd Family Studies, who was named lCU Teacher ofthe Year for 1982. Much more important, he believed, ras the teacher's role in motivating tudents to enjoy learning and to con- inue to learn. Said Faulkner, "When students have he desire, the motivation, and they now they're loved then no matter what level of abilities they have they now that there's still a significant lace for them in life." Although that "doesn't say much bout academics," Faulkner said he relieved that if he can "train them in hose kinds of social concerns, and then ive them motivation, they will be tudents all their lives." Faulkner admitted that his descrip- lon Qf a teacher is influenced by :aching at a Christian college. "The ole of a teacher as a motivator, a spark lug, someone who promotes curiosity - all that focuses on the person under Ihrist as a servant," he said. This difference in faculty and tudents is what makes ACU unique, 'aulkner contended. "If ACU is just another standard, :cular university then there's no reason Jr people sacrificing, parents sacrific- ig, faculty sacrificing for this school to xistf' Wposite page: Paul Faulkner, pro- essor of Bible and director of the In- Fitute of Marriage and Family tudies, smiles as he is introduced as 'eacher ofthe Year. The 1982 graduation exercises at which he was named Teacher of the Year were somewhat a family affair for Faulkner as his daughter Debbie re- ceived her master's degree. Faulkner also participated in the ceremonies by hooding the - master's degree candidates. This made the second time that more than one member of the Faulkner fami- ly was involved in an ACU graduation. In 1976 Faulkner was chosen by the senior class to speak at commencement. That year his wife received her master's degree, and Debbie received her bachelor's degree. Faulkner also has a daughter, Con- nie, who planned to enter ACU as a freshman in the fall of '82 and two sons, Von and Brad, who attended the University of Texas in Austin. Being named Teacher of the Year was "the top honor," Faulkner said. s'I don't know if I deserve it, but I don't know anybody who appreciates it more." The academic council selected Faulkner from student and faculty nominations. And President William J. Teague presented Faulkner a check for S1,000. Some of Faulkner's career goals in- cluded getting the Marriage and Family Institute accredited by the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy. He also planned to write another book and to do some videotapes through the Institute for use in Bible classes. Some of the topics the videotapes would cover were marriage, family, pre- marriage, courtship, old age, stress and other "practical" matters. Faulkner said he also was in the pro- cess of revising the 6th edition of the Marriage Enrichment Seminar. He and Carl Brecheen, professor of Bible, have presented the seminars in 26 states and two foreign countries since 1974. In May 1980 the seminar was filmed and made into a series of eight 45- by Robin Ward minute films. He also planned to work some more on the material for the large freshman Bible class he teaches. "Those are my special students," he said. Faulkner joined the ACU faculty as a Bible professor in 1957, was dean of men from 1958-65 and has served as director of the Marriage and Family In- stitute since it began three years ago. He received the B.S. from ACU in 1952 and the M.S. in 1961. He earned the M.R.E. and Ed.D. from Southwestern Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, and has done post-doctoral training with the American Institute of Family Relations and at Pepperdine University. Faulkner was a member of the American Psychological Association and was a clinical member and approv- ed supervisor ofthe American Associa- tion of Marriage and Family Therapy. In January he was elected to the board of the Texas Association of Marriage and Family Therapy. He also has served as a minister for Churches of Christ in Kansas, North Carolina and Texas.
