Professor Robert Jackson was awarded an honorary doctorate by the Norwegian School of Theology in Oslo, October 21.
Professor Jackson is a leading international figure within Religious Education. His work has been profoundly important for researchers, teacher trainers, policy makers and students for at least 20 years. EWC is currently carrying out work to adapt the publication Signpost so that it can be used in teacher trainings. Signpost gives practical advice to policy makers, education professionals and teacher trainers on how the study of religion and non-religious convictions can contribute to intercultural education in schools. It was published by EWC and the Council of Europe in 2014 and written by Professor Jackson.
Professor Jackson was awarded the honorary doctorate alongside Professor Linda Woodhead.
