Canon to Critique: The Future of Islamic Education (Leeds University Being Human 2016)
For at least a decade there has been a growing movement of young British Muslims who choose to travel abroad to study at religious seminaries (madrasas). However, the madrasa system is controversial: on one hand, it is perceived in the West as a conduit of extremism and, on the other, as an institution lacking pedagogic criticality. In a lecture by Dr Tajul Islam (University of Leeds), followed by a dialogue between Dr Islam and Dr Mustapha Sheikh (University of Leeds), probing questions are asked about the classical madrasa model, the problems associated with non-critical engagement with canonical texts in pedagogic settings, and ways of approaching texts from a position of both critical engagement and sensitivity/respect.

Facets of Classics (History): Is this Sparta?
Facets of Classics is a series of workshops for A-Level students of philosophy, history, languages and literature, who do not have the opportunity to study classics at school. The workshops are designed to help students apply the skills they have learnt in other disciplines to studying classical material, in order to empower them to take on a new subject at university. The workshops are designed to draw key connections between a subjects they already study and classics. In the history workshop, "Is this Sparta?", students identify and challenge modern portrayals of the Spartans through source evaluation; comparing films, video games and marketing with archaeological sites, artefacts and ancient texts. In this video the workshop leader, Maria Haley, explains more about the content.

Integration of digital education tools in Arabic language teaching and learning - the SAMR model Mohamed Amer, ILI Cairo, Egypt and Q&A session
By analyzing the Net Generation’s motivation to use the digital technology and identifying the activities that are involved in the process we can pinpoint the essential characteristics that guide the best practice for integrating the digital tools and resources in teaching and learning. Those tools are generally characterized by one or more of the following attributes: • adaptive to individual preferences • providing opportunities for collaboration and sharing • offering sense of community • profiling individuals according to their contributions • maintaining stealth user assessment and giving ranking • community recognition and individual motivation • activity tracking and reporting on demand Supplementing our teaching with digital tools in a way that lacks to any of those attributes will only result in offering variety of materials format and activities without getting out of the traditional classroom box. This presentation will showcase a mobile friendly web application that provides teachers and students with a platform for hosting structured and collaborative activities to practice reading and listening of media Arabic web content. The application implements the SAMR model higher levels of modification and redefinition. Both the application and activities try as much as possible to create a small learning community with collaboration, sharing and ranking functions. The presentation will showcase a live demo of the application as well as an overview of other related implementations and projects.

Teaching grammar orally through Colloquial Arabic – report of an experiment - Rachael Harris, University of Cambridge
In our first year Arabic BA course we have been experimenting with teaching grammatical structures first orally in ECA, then in MSA, within a structural syllabus based very loosely on Al Kitaab Part 1. Examples of ECA structures are presented in communicative contexts and students first repeat then manipulate them. Explanation in English follows, and is also provided in writing, then students practise intensively through drilling as a group or in pairs, other oral exercises, and brief interactions. The structure is further reinforced through listening, and oral translation into ECA. The same structure is then studied comparatively in fully vowelled MSA through matching exercises or analysing a text, and practised through oral drills, written exercises, and finally free writing. This approach has several advantages: practice is far quicker orally than in writing; structures are practised intensively in class, leaving less for students to absorb independently; learning to speak first helps reading; students practise accuracy in spontaneous speech, then have time, with writing, for contrastive reflection and grammatical precision in MSA. At the end of the year the students had more fluent, grammatically accurate and wide-ranging command of ECA than previous students, and wrote MSA more correctly and effectively, with a wider range of grammar and vocabulary in both. Their aural and written comprehension was improved and they were less confused between the two varieties. Overall they had a far better feel for and command of the language.
