  • The Qur’anic Worldview for the curriculum

  • Main themes of the Curriculum Framework

  • Presentation of demo lessons

At the end of the workshop, the participants were asked three questions:

 

  1. Do you agree with the integrated approach?

  2. Should MCE proceed with developing lessons?

  3. Would your madrasah be willing to participate in piloting the MCE curriculum?

In line with responses from other regions, over 95% of the participants answered in the affirmative to each question.

  

Members of the CD team were Maulana Syed Muhammad Rizvi, Shaykh Safder Jaffer, Dr Bashir Datoo, brother Aly Nasser and Al-Haj Naushad Mehrali. For further details about the curriculum framework, please email mce@world-federation.org
