Institute of QTS Training: RE

Centre of competence for Religion, Spirituality and Value Education as well as Interreligious-Intercultural Learning in Primary and Secondary School.

In accordance with our motto 'Gaining insight into religion/s - developing spirituality - living in fulfilling relationships', we engage in the methodological implementation of the new curricula for RE teachers in a university environment. Research-based analysis of questions concerning intergenerational fostering of faith with children and young people, as well as research into the spirituality of children and into interreligious/intercultural learning underpin our teaching. As co-founders of the Linz Forum for RE Pedagogy, we focus on questions of the societal importance of religious education, and we regularly organise study days and discussion forums.
