This project is concerned with equipping and empowering teachers to improve their teaching of RE. The research involves examining the teachers’ own worldview in a CPD session in activities that can be transferred into classroom settings for use in RE lessons. In a follow up interview the teachers and researcher can assess how useful the materials are and suggest any further resources that may be needed.
The research is being conducted by Ruth Flanagan who is an Associate Lecturer at Exeter University teaching on the PGCE course, MA: SEN and undergraduate ‘Learning for Teaching’ module. She has been a teacher for 24 years and has taught in Primary and Secondary schools, on adult education courses and more recently at Exeter University. Ruth has travelled widely and worked in different educational settings. Ruth additionally holds the role of Race Equality Recourse Officer at the University.
If you feel inexperienced in teaching RE or unsure of how to unpick and teach ‘British Values’ this project may well assist you.
