Event description

Description

The education forum is proudly presented by the Centre for Islamic Thought and Education (CITE) and the University of South Australia.

The Annual Australian Islamic Education Forum aims to provide a platform for educators in Islamic schooling (Islamic schools, Madrassah or home educators/home schoolers) to network, build collaborative partnerships, share stories of hope and showcase projects and best practices in Islamic education.

The format of the Annual Australian Islamic Education Forum is designed to be practical and interactive with time for question and answer and discussion between presenters and participants.

The Annual Australian Islamic Education Forum proposes to bridge theory and practice by complementing the theoretical and academic nature of the Annual Islamic Schooling Conference which serves to build the rigor of academic research in the field.

This gathering offers an exceptional professional development opportunity not to be missed.

Expected Presenters and Participants

The forum expects participants from Australia in the main. This includes presenters from universities, Islamic Schools, madrassah, home schools/home education - educational leaders, senior teachers, curriculum or teaching and learning coordinators and classroom teachers.

Forum Background and Theme

Islamic Schooling Renewal – A Focus on Curriculum

A key element of Islamic schooling renewal is a focus on curriculum. Many questions pertaining to various aspects of curriculum renewal in Islamic schooling require answers and practical insights: What does curriculum renewal look like in Islamic schooling? How are educators in Islamic schooling engaging with the Australian Curriculum or the Early Years Learning Framework? How much progress has been made in the area of curriculum within Islamic schooling? To what extent have we achieved an ‘Islamic’ curriculum? What does this mean? Are curricular relevant and contextual and how do they align with the Australian Curriculum? How equipped is the field of Islamic schooling to manage necessary curriculum renewal? What progress has been made in the area of integrated curricular? What does integration in the context of Islamic schooling deliver for quality teaching and learning? Do existing curricular meet the needs of Australian Muslim students?

These are just some of the questions that Islamic Schooling Renewal – A Focus on Curriculum will tackle in the practical forum sessions.

Presentations will address the following themes:

  • Negotiating contested spaces – curriculum and Islamic schooling

  • Strategies for engaging with National Curriculum

  • Islamic schooling & the Early Years Learning Framework (Belonging, Being and Becoming)

  • Leadership and curriculum• Case studies and stories of hope - curriculum integration, curriculum renewal, curriculum projects

  • Case studies and stories of hope - curriculum enactment in &/or across KLAs in Islamic schooling (English, HaSS, STEM, HPE/PDHPE, Arts, Music, Islamic & Arabic studies)

  • Enacting curriculum for teaching faith perspectives across the curriculum

  • Quality curriculum, assessment and pedagogy in Islamic schooling contexts
