We are designing learning experiences to nurture emaan and character strengths that form personalities that are loved by Allah. Our learning experiences have been designed for construction of knowledge of emaan and Islam by the learner and its reflection in actions. These learning experiences have been designed considering Vygotsky’s social cultural theory, Bruner’s constructivist theory and Bandura’s social learning theory besides relying on cognitive science for formation of enduring memories. As internalization of emaan construct requires deep learning, we have designed our learning experiences in such a way that the learners start with surface level learning moving slowly towards deep learning by reconstructing knowledge through experience.
Our learning experiences can be termed as junctions where positive psychology meets spirituality and learning theories meet Islamic pedagogy.
