Once each month, on a Tuesday evening, a speaker from the world of Religion and/or Religious Education will be invited to share with us the wisdom derived from their research. Each one may be from a different angle: Cognitive Science, Queer Theology, Textual study, Religion in Media, RE policy. Speakers may be researchers from other universities, teacher practitioners, faith leaders and our own staff and research students. We are interested in critically analysing both religion and education as contemporary lived phenomena. As a Faculty of Education, we are engaged in working at the interface of research and practice. The series aims to inspire, stretch and motivate serving teachers, our students, and hopefully each one of us that participates.
- Refreshments – 4.30pm
- Guest speaker/lecture – 5pm
- Discussion – 5.40pm
The series is free and open to all. School colleagues interested in Religious Education are most welcome, as are staff and students from across the University.
Who is the event aimed at: This is an internally and externally facing event. It is expected that students on undergraduate or post-graduate courses in Religion and/or Religious Education will attend to enable them to broaden their educational experience. Students from other subjects will be welcome too, as will staff from the University and we hope that we may attract interested members of the public.
The sessions have been deliberately timed so that colleagues working in schools, in RE departments, or beyond, will be able to attend. This will be valuable CPD, and with alumni, mentors and other teaching staff attending will strengthen our partnership.
