One of the core objectives of the Islamic Teacher Education Program and the Online Learning Certificate is to introduce educators to the philosophies of Islamic education, or principles of Islamic Pedagogy and their implementation.
This webinar explores the implementation of Islamic pedagogy at Amanah Institute in Brisbane, Australia as understood through the Islamic Teacher Education Program.
The approach at Amanah Institute was like that of almost any contemporary madrassah as in a Western context.
Three years ago the Institute made the brave decision to conduct an external review which was the stimulus for an ambitious school improvement project.
A vital part of the school improvement project was a renewal in the education approach. It was through Islamic pedagogy that Amanah Institute gained a framework for such a renewal! Specifically a guide in the why, what, and how to teach from an Islamic perspective as described through the Islamic Teacher Education Program.
This webinar will capture the efforts to transform a madrassah into a functional and dynamic space for teaching and learning in the Islamic spirit, a madrassah responsive to the needs of students with a firm footing within the tradition.
The Amanah Institute case study offers valuable lessons and insights for anyone interested in adopting and implementing an Islamic pedagogy, especially Islamic schools and madrassah, and the place of the Islamic Teacher Education Program in facilitating this process.
Principal Dylan Chown, an alumnus of ITEP, and now a course facilitator will share:
- how Islamic pedagogy was introduced and implemented at the school
- the many challenges along the way
- the successes and lessons learned in this journey
This case study shares the planting of a seed and is a story of discovery!
