Conference: The Study of Religion and Good Teaching Materials

The Working Group on Religion Education of the Dutch Association for the Study of Religion (NGG), the Netherlands School for Advanced Studies in Theology and Religion(NOSTER), and the Leiden University Centre for the Study of Religion(LUCSoR) are pleased to announce the theme meeting “The Study of Religion and Good Teaching Materials”, to be held on 31 October – 1 November 2018 at Leiden University.

The theme meeting is intended to give Dutch scholars of religion, high school religion teachers, and teacher trainers the opportunity to reflect with each other and with leading members of the Working Group Religion in Public Education of the European Association for the Study of Religion on how knowledge and methods from the Study of Religion can best be implemented in teaching materials and teaching practices in secondary education. We have chosen to focus on the development of teaching materials because the Dutch Working Group on Religion Education will be developing teaching material over the coming years in cooperation with high school teachers and scholars from the research project Religious Matters. The theme meeting consists of two parts: a panel on ‘Good Quality Teaching Materials for Religious Education’ on Wednesday 31 October and an expert meeting on ‘The Study of Religion and Religion Education’ on Thursday 1 November.

Please also see the description of this previous conference and the news item that was published afterwards.
