Abstract

Religious and values education syllabuses are being utilized increasingly in Australia to deal with issues of social dissonance and especially to provide means of improving communication and understanding between groups characterized by religious difference. The issue of enhancing understanding of Islam for Muslim and non-Muslim populations is regarded as a particularly urgent focus of such efforts. The chapter will outline the tenor of some of this work and show how it has potential to impact intellectually, socially and morally on student learning and practical action.
