Working Group Religion Education

The purpose of this working group is to promote a religious studies approach to religion education (RS-based RE) in Dutch secondary schools. In close cooperation with high school teachers, the working group seeks to (i) create and distribute innovative teaching materials, (ii) develop a study-of-religion based didactics, (iii) organize professionalizing activities for high school teachers, and (iv) promote research on all aspects of religion education, such as the quality of existing teaching material and the political-juridical organization of religion education in the Netherlands. The Dutch working group works together with the Working Group Religion in Public Education of the European Association for the Study of Religion.
