The Center for the Study of Citizenship presents:

Interfaith Curricular Development Workshop - a Transatlantic Perspective

You are invited to attend a two-day workshop on developing inclusive K-12 curriculum responsive to the needs of students of varying religious and cultural backgrounds. The workshop will be divided into two sessions:

  • First, on Saturday, a Muslim-Christian discussion of interfaith curricular development.
  • Second, on Sunday, a Muslim-Jewish discussion of interfaith curricular development. Both sessions will draw from expertise and experience in the UK and in the US.

These sessions will showcase similarities and contrasts in the development of such curricula and focus on challenges and solutions to the issues such engagement raises. Each session will begin with expert presentations, which will then form the basis for discussion of approaches, challenges, and desired outcomes. Each session will conclude with  the entire group will collaboratively developing a white paper on the subject of curricular development.

Target audience:

Faculty and administration members of public school districts, private and parochial schools, as well as educators and practitioners in the area of education and interfaith engagement.

Cost: $10 per person
