He helped facilitate the Scriptorium's two international conferences held at Van Kampen's former Hampton Court Manor House, in Herefordshire, co-sponsored with the British Library. During his time at The Scriptorium, Pattengale also acted as liaison in local middle school classrooms that were participating in The Scriptorium's Odyssey in Egypt online archaeological education program, a multi-variegated virtual curriculum that linked the young students to the excavation and its staff. The program generated millions of hits through its association with Sloman’s “Day in the Life of” series and received international recognition. In 2007, he served as a consultant for Lee Strobel’s film The Case for Christ (produced by Peter Schockey). He has served Indiana Wesleyan University, predecessor to Marion College, his alma mater, in academic administration since 1997, most recently as Assistant Provost for Public Engagement.

Famous quotes containing the words education and/or career:

    Statecraft is soulcraft. Just as all education is moral education because learning conditions conduct, much legislation is moral legislation because it conditions the action and the thought of the nation in broad and important spheres of life.
    George F. Will (b. 1941)

    I began my editorial career with the presidency of Mr. Adams, and my principal object was to render his administration all the assistance in my power. I flattered myself with the hope of accompanying him through [his] voyage, and of partaking in a trifling degree, of the glory of the enterprise; but he suddenly tacked about, and I could follow him no longer. I therefore waited for the first opportunity to haul down my sails.
    William Cobbett (1762–1835)
