The Klingenthal online conference has as its topic storytelling. ICCS and CoGREE want to take this opportunity to write a new story in a quite practical sense as well – a story of common learning and further European connections. Therefore, we are very happy to announce a new cooperation with the “relilab café”.
RELILAB – CAFÉ
Relilab is an initiative for and by RE teachers from Germany, Switzerland and Austria. One of their most popular formats is the “relilab café” – an open video conference format every Thursday 4-6pm, where teachers of religious education can meet and exchange about current issues and challenges they are facing. Inputs from various speakers enrich the discussions.
Topic: “Let’s tell our stories – the positive impact of religion in public education”
When? Thursday, 21st October 2021, 2-6pm CET (1-5pm UK/IRE)
Where? on zoom via the “relilab café”
What? Storytelling and religion in education
In 2021 participants will finally be able to properly work on the topic “Let’s tell our stories – the positive impact of religion in public education”. Even if it is digital, exchange and learning is possible. In a time of increasing secularisation, some might say there is no place for telling the story of religion anymore. At this hands-on edition of Klingenthal, we want to identify arguments and narratives, which can demonstrate why religion in education matters. We will learn about communication strategies, the power of storytelling and about how to wrap the identified arguments in an appealing story.
