Course summary

Course Overview

The central objective of this course is to enable diverse groups of teachers and Muslim educators to become research-based reflective practitioners, whilst facilitating teaching and learning of Muslim faith and its historical and modern expressions within diverse educational settings. You will explore intersecting issues related to Muslims in mainstream education and educational/pedagogic challenges experienced within contemporary Muslim minority and majority societies. By adopting an interdisciplinary study framework, you will critically examine perceptions of education in Muslim textual sources and intellectual heritage as well as engage with modern educational theory and pedagogic practice. The emphasis on the course is on the importance of contemporary educational research into Islamic Education, especially research springing from the Social Sciences directed towards pedagogy and curriculum development. You will discover Islamic Education as an interdisciplinary field of scholarly study, empirical research and professional development.

Teaching and Assessment

Depending on which term modules run, you'll attend one or two 3-hour seminars each week during the Autumn and Spring Terms of modules plus research methods training lectures and seminars throughout all three terms. If you are a part-time student the number of modules you take each term will depend on the length of your course. You will have one optional module to select in total. Depending on the modules you select, sessions consist of presentations, group discussions, case studies and self-study. Some modules are available online. Seminar group numbers vary depending on the modules that are selected. Assessment types vary depending on modules selected but may be a mixture of assignments and oral presentations.
