RExChange 2022 Recordings
Real world research for real world classrooms
RExChange 2022 took place on 7th-8th October 2022. A conference for all those engaged in the teaching of religion and worldviews in schools, colleges and universities. It provided a hospitable forum for teachers and researchers to interact and engage with one another; promoting the interdisciplinary nature of RE, including workshops, presentations/ and/or contributions which focus on ways of knowing, and how the subject is studied.
Many of the sessions were recorded and are freely available below.
Pathways through the recordings
With 36 session recordings it’s hard to know where to start. We’ve plotted some possible routes for you, tailored to different interests or roles. Of course, you’re free to find your own way through, based on sessions that just sound interesting or that you missed on the day; but we hope these ideas might help you to make the most of a rich set of resources. All routes open in a new window in Vimeo.
If you’re a primary practitioner or mainly interested in primary practice, this could be a useful route to take. Take the primary route
If secondary RE / R&W is your main area, you could try this path. Take the secondary route
Are you interested in issues of subject policy, including the profile of RE / R&W, how the subject is organised or its place within education? This sequence may work. Take the policy route
Some sessions on curriculum development in RE / R&W follow next. These sessions approach the issue from a variety of starting points. Take the curriculum route
Positionality, Criticality and Disciplinarity
How do our own backgrounds and positions influence our views of RE / R&W, and our pedagogical, curricular or policy preferences? What roles should critical awareness and academic disciplines play? One pathway through relevant RExChange2022 sessions is as follows. Take the positionality, criticality and disciplinarity route
Future of RE / R&W
The future of the subject is something we should all be concerned with, and in a sense all the RExChange2022 sessions relate to it. However, here is a path through several particularly pertinent sessions, including a practical guide to adding your own thoughts via publication. Take the future of RE / R&W route
