Islam In RE – Now in Birmingham

My improved version of Islam In RE – Religious Literacy & Controversy through Enquiry is now available to West Midlands Schools on 23rd February in Sparkbrook, Birmingham.

The course is presented to all educators interested in Islam and how to deal with ISIS, terrorism, homophobia and similar difficult issues when teaching Islam in RE in relation to statutory requirements.

This event is the first promoted in collaboration with the Education Business. This Luton-based company gives schools more value for money by finding the most cost-efficient solution to everything from procurement to training.

The Education Business is an obvious partner for me to work with, as no approach to teaching and learning offers more value for money than Cooperative Learning: Please refer to EEF Teaching and Learning Toolkit; a Cooperative Learning gloss for details.

 

Islam in RE – Religious Literacy & Controversy Through Enquiry

Tuesday 23rd February 2016 – 9:30am to 4:00pm
179 Anderton Road, Birmingham, B11 1ND

Islam in RE: Religious Literacy & Controversy through Enquiry is presented to all educators interested in Islam and how to deal with ISIS, terrorism, homophobia and similar difficult issues when teaching Islam in RE in relation to statutory requirements, including community cohesion, safeguarding, actively promoting British Values and Citizenship/ SMSC (Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural Education).

This course was first trialled at the University of East Anglia to facilitate the best practice outlined in Ofsted’s RE report Realising the Potential and has been presented at the IoE PGCE programme, London, and elsewhere.

Especially state schools with many Muslim pupils may find some of these subjects difficult to approach. Islam in RE: Religious Literacy & Controversy through Enquiry gives each teacher the confidence to teach the Islamic component of the RE curriculum in depth through carefully guided enquiry. In the religious literacy module delegates will investigate Islamic civilisation’s winding road from spearheading science, philosophy, trade and spirituality to murdering civilians in European cities.

“Very inspiring – it was immediately obvious why Cooperative Learning approach would have multiple benefits, especially when learning about controversial topics.”

R.T. Bradley, Head of Religious Studies, Queen Mary’s Grammar School, Walsall, December 2015
