Moreover, the course aims to offer students historical and religious information useful to interpret the educational relationship in a multi-religious society.

By following the introductory exposition by the professor, and by dealing with concrete situational/educational problems, cognitive knowledge, emotional discernment, communicating competence and history/ethics-applying skills are fostered and trained. Theories, principles, religious symbols and practices, ways of reasoning, logical rules, linguistic ambiguities, styles of behavior and moral questions are presented, commented and analyzed in a pluralistic manner. Relevant key words and issues will be debated and interdisciplinary professional-educational dilemmas will be criticized and evaluated.
Narrative texts, especially motion pictures, will involve the group in the emotional heart of complex cases, outline the social imaginary, help the expression of individual insights and feelings, prepare a mature staff decision. Moreover, visual texts, movies and music will be useful for deepening further studying in history of religions.
