Full Session Description (as long as you would like):

 

Religious diversity and literacy in the schools have, in many instances, been topics of challenge. Religion, by its very nature with its various truth claims, can be a source of tension within any community and especially a school community. Many educators are insecure about the content of many religions not inherent to their culture. This gap in religious literacy has profound consequences as students begin to navigate an increasingly globalized twenty-first century in which it becomes increasingly apparent that “religion matters.” A student understanding of religious diversity directly relates to three of the four Domains of Global Competence and would help to address UN Sustainable Development Goal 16: Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels. During this session, Dr. Hall, Director of Academics of Thales Academy and Founder of Religion Matters, will detail some of the challenges of religious literacy and responses to these challenges in an educational setting.
