In Conversation with Emily Downe and Jason Ramasami: Why innovation matters for today’s teachers of religion and worldviews
This event features a conversation with Emily Downe and Jason Ramasami on how animation and illustration can be used as powerful tools for classroom learning. They will share examples of their work and some of the principles around engaging today’s pupils with complex ideas, particularly in religion and worldviews using visual narrative forms. The event will include a showcase of a new animation about the concept of worldview.
