We are very excited to announce the publication of a new book entitled Curriculum Renewal for Islamic Education which was recently published with Routledge.
AlhamduLillah the book is the culmination three years of effort from a team of 18 educators from around the world to develop a guidebook intended to empower educators in Islamic schools to lead curriculum renewal in their own schools.
Each part of the book provides practical guidance to educators in a particular area of Islamic schooling.
Part I focuses on Islamic Studies formally.
Part II emphasises curriculum integration or more accurately approaching national/state curricular from an Islamic worldview.
Part III provides the pillars for a curriculum renewal process.
The book is intended to be used as a set of readings to inspire renewed thinking in school-based curriculum teams or whole school professional learning communities.
