description

The Journal of Interreligious Studies and its partners are leading a symposium and workshop led by educators, scholars, and experts in interfaith/interreligious studies and pedagogies. The symposium expands on the special issue (No. 36) on the same topic and features many of the same authors and respondents. Panelists will share concrete classroom exercises, assignments, and assessments along with learning goals, teaching philosophies, and pedagogical theories behind them.

During workshop sessions, participants will work with individual panelists to sharpen their own pedagogies, explore new ideas, ask critical questions, and examine the features that distinguish interfaith/interreligious pedagogies from pedagogies in the study of religion or theology classroom and how they can be integrated in varying institutional contexts.
