Event description

Description

Presented by Centre for Islamic Thought and Education (CITE), School of Education, University of South Australia

Pedagogy can be defined in many ways, narrowly as a way of teaching or a methodology of instruction, and more broadly as a framework for conceptualising what is meant by approaches to schooling. A critical reflection on pedagogy within the field of Islamic schooling is timely as we move beyond the establishment phase and embrace an era characterised by renewal.

If one considers the provocation that pedagogy is never politically neutral, a unique lens for exploration exists in the field of Islamic schooling given the complex politics of Muslims and Islam in popular Australian media as well as in other contemporary Western contexts and the intersection with contemporary schooling contexts, sometimes criticised as neoliberal.

How much progress has been made in the area of pedagogy within Islamic schooling? What is an Islamic pedagogy and what does it offer to the field of Islamic schooling? Are our current pedagogies responsive to the educational context and the needs of Australian Muslim students? How does pedagogical practice in Islamic schools align with AITSL teacher standards? How equipped is the field of Islamic schooling to manage necessary pedagogical renewal?

These are just some of the questions that Islamic Schooling Renewal – A Focus on Pedagogy will tackle over two conference days, as it examines pedagogy and Islamic schooling for Muslim students from a whole-of-life and whole-of-community perspective.

With an impressive line-up of international and national speakers from specialist disciplines and diverse sectors, Islamic Schooling Renewal – A Focus on Pedagogy is sure to offer valuable and practical insights into the future of pedagogy in Islamic schooling in the West.
