The goal of this course is to introduce learners to the guidance contained in the Writings of the Central Figures of the Bahá’í Faith on education and to implement activities in formal and informal educational settings. Through a structured study of both Bahá’í and secular sources, learners will increase their understanding of the unique wisdom found in the Bahá’í Faith as it applies to both the education of children and the lifelong learning of everyone. Topics include defining the meaning of education from the Bahá’í perspective, 'Abdu'l-Bahá's "Four Criteria of Comprehension," combining material, human, and spiritual education, and promoting education that unifies in secular or morally challenging environments.

This course will appeal to anyone developing materials for, encouraging, or teaching youth, junior youth and children.
