The 2013 International Dialogue Australasia Network Conference is designed to support teachers of RE, Philosophy and Ethics in their important and challenging task.
Contemporary Religious Education has a unique opportunity to:
- engage directly with students’ questions about ultimate meaning, value and purpose,
- introduce students to religious and secular philosophies as sources of wisdom and insight,
- equip students with the knowledge and skills to explore their own beliefs and values and those of others,
- critically grapple with and creatively respond to complex ethical issues.
As such, good RE has a special role in nurturing the General Capabilities prescribed by the Australian Curriculum, including Critical and Creative Thinking, Ethical Behaviour, Intercultural Understanding and Personal & Social Capability.
The 2013 International Dialogue Australasia Network Conference is designed to support teachers of RE, Philosophy and Ethics in their important and challenging task. Outstanding educators and academics will explore and share examples of creative pedagogy, curriculum planning and teaching resources focusing on the relationship between the content of RE and Critical and Creative Thinking, Ethical Behaviour, Intercultural Understanding and Personal & Social Capability.
