Professor Mohamad Abdalla, the Director of the Centre for Islamic Thought and Education, University of South Australia, is being hosted by the Faculty of Education, Victoria University of Wellington, from 10-14 December 2018. The Centre Professor Abdalla leads is multi-disciplinary, offering innovative online courses and face-to-face professional learning development in Islamic Pedagogy, family relations, Islamic leadership and finance.

Professor Abdalla is well-known in Australia and the Islamic world including Malaysia, Indonesia, Middle East and other English-speaking countries. As an Imam and highly-regarded scholar, he has worked to build bridges between diverse faith traditions; focusing in particular on communities, youth, schools and public services (health, children, corrections).

During his visit he will explore collaboration with the Faculty of Education, the wider University, local and national communities and different public bodies.

The Faculty of Education invites you to attend a seminar (please bring your own lunch), where Professor Abdalla will talk about cultural responsiveness and the Muslim Learner in New Zealand and Australia.
