The World Muslim Communities Council holds Virtual Conference: "Challenges Facing Education in Islamic Schools (Elementary, Primary, Secondary) after Corona" on 27 Jun 2020
The Corona crisis marked an unprecedented turning point in the history of educational institutions in the world, as these institutions were forced to resort to distance education during the government-imposed closure period to preserve people's lives. This in turn created a new reality - in a complete way - that would lead the education personnel to reconsider the philosophy of education, its goals, systems, means, educational curricula and activities.
Islamic education at the pre-university and university levels is an integral part of this global reality. It will be subject to the changes that will affect the education systems all around the world. The questions that will arise strongly here: How will the leaders of Islamic education respond to this new challenge? Does Islamic education have sufficient traditions regarding teachers and students to use the distance education system? Do Islamic education institutions that exist in limited societies have the necessary infrastructure for distance education? Are there a flexible curricula, remotely implementable, through technological means?
To address these problems, and to provide convincing, practical, procedural, actionable and measurable answers, the World Muslim Communities Council is organizing, in partnership with competent and relevant institutions on pre-university Islamic education, an international scientific conference, under the title Challenges Facing Education in Islamic Schools (Elementary, Primary, Secondary) after Corona,” on June 27, 2020.
