Nowadays, research results should be accessible for all. Two articles from a SIR-project on interreligious encounter learning are now online.

Interreligious encounter learning is a model of religious education that is used in schools and universities. As part of a SIR-project in Vienna, a model of interreligious encounter learning was installed at two secondary schools, which is based on a concept by Katja Boehme (PH Heidelberg). The research project explored the following questions:

  • What does ‘encounter’ consist of in the interreligious encounter learning programme?
  • What understanding of religion is expressed?
  • To what extent can ‘authentic’ interactions be observed?
  • How do the participants themselves interpret this? 

The project has been a co-operation between four institutes of the KPH Vienna/Krems. Two articles from the project have recently been made accessible for open access:
