Activity

Presenting research to seminar series: Researching RE teachers

Description

This seminar presentation allowed us to share the results of our their recent survey of 355 RE teachers, exploring the background of these educators in terms of qualifications, personal (a)theistic belief, and religion. We discussed the degree backgrounds of RE teachers, what religion they belong to (if any), and the range of theistic, agnostic, and atheistic teachers currently within the RE profession.
