Innovative practices in teaching about religions and worldviews

THIS IS AN INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE IN PROJECT TO HIGHLIGHT INNOVATIVE PRACTICES IN TEACHING ABOUT RELIGION(S) and WORLDVIEWS

‘Innovative Spaces of RE for Real: analysing and showcasing new ways of learning’

The Faiths & Civil Society Unit, Goldsmiths, University of London, and the Education for Social Justice research group at London South Bank University, are launching a new project to explore and showcase innovative approaches to education about religion(s) and worldviews in schools. This will showcase classroom practice which meets the learning proposed in the new National Entitlement for Religion & Worldviews launched by the Commission on Religious Education (CoRE) in September 2018.

The project builds on the Faiths Unit’s 2015 report RE for Real – The Future of Teaching and Learning about Religion & Belief which helped lay the ground for the new Entitlement and National Plan. A particular focus is on the study of the category of religion, belief and worldview – what counts, and how does it relate to ideas of the secular – as well as exploration of the real religious landscape, as opposed to that which has often been imagined in traditional RE.

There is much brilliant, innovative RE going on already all around the country which is exciting to students but which is patchy and could be extended. This project will highlight key examples and will complement debates about change in policy and practice among sector leaders, with evidence of existing new practices from which others can learn.

It would like to hear from schools which are already innovating in their teaching and learning about religion(s) and worldviews. If you would like to be involved in the project, please complete the short questionnaire below:
