FREE course on Muslims in Britain for RE teachers

24 October 2022

Muslim teacher with pupils

Calling all teachers: this FREE six-week online course will teach you about Muslims in Britain and how to understand and explore Islam from a sociological perspective in the RE classroom.

It will introduce you to the importance of lived accounts of religion, the basics of Islam as a religious tradition, the diversity of British Muslim identities, and how to use different kinds of data within RE.

This course has been developed by a team at the Islam-UK Centre, who specialise in sociological research exploring Muslims in Britain, alongside experts in other fields of Islamic Studies. We're thrilled that this course has been endorsed by the Muslim Council of Britain, the Muslim Council of Wales and RE Today - one of the leading professional bodies for RE teachers in Britain.

The course is accompanied by a fully-resourced scheme of work that includes teaching PowerPoints, lesson plans, pupil worksheets and other associated resources. You'll also have access to Cardiff University library resources, as well as collections of free extra resources for each topic.

This course will encourage you to reflect on how to implement your learning into your RE teaching, and provides an opportunity to network and share experiences and ideas with other RE teachers from around the UK.
