The European Forum of Teachers of RE (EFTRE) is inviting people working in the field of religious education to a free Zoom seminar on ‘dealing with religion and non-religious world views in intercultural education’, which is being held on Friday, 19 March 2021 from 3pm to 7pm.
This is part of the major European ‘Signposts’ project. The original Signposts (edited by Robert Jackson) is a Council of Europe publication focusing on how the study of religions and non-religious world views can contribute to intercultural education in schools in Europe. It provides advice on tackling issues arising from the Council of Europe Recommendation CM/Rec(2008)12 on the dimension of religions and non-religious convictions within intercultural education.
Since its publication, a teacher training module has been developed which builds on the key elements of the publication in a practical and engaging way and this seminar opportunity offers an introduction to that module.
Both the Signposts publication and the teacher training module can be downloaded from the ‘What’s happening in Europe?’ section of our ‘Curriculum matters’ webpage.
If any teachers in Wrexham are interested in attending this event, please contact us for the Zoom details. Please note: the Zoom venue can only accommodate a maximum of 100 participants, so priority will be given to the first 100 people who log in.
