By participating in the workshop, you will:

• develop skills to meet the educational needs and expectations of diverse cultural, linguistic and religious groups, with particular reference to Muslims
• acquire whole-school and cross-school strategies to engage with diverse cultural groups
• acquire strategies to build intercultural and interfaith understandings in the classroom
• be able to identify subject-specific and cross-curricular links in the Australian Curriculum where interfaith and intercultural content can be introduced

This workshop will also familiarise you with two teacher resources:

1. Learning from One Another: Bringing Muslim perspectives into Australian schools

2. Building interfaith and intercultural understandings in Australian schools

These resources provide information, practical advice and relevant examples for teachers in all Australian schools. Participants will receive copies of both resources at no cost.

This professional learning opportunity is brought to you by the National Centre of Excellence for Islamic Studies (NCEIS), the University of Melbourne, and the Australian Curriculum Studies Association (ACSA), with funding from the Myer Foundation.

This is a free workshop and places are strictly limited.
