More than 250 UK secondary school teachers listened to speakers, including Dr. Ataullah Siddiqui of the Markfield Institute, Tahir Alam of the Muslim Council of Great Britain and Dr. Peter Vardy of the University of London, addressing topics ranging from what schools should be doing to respond to radicalisation, to practical strategies for teaching about Islam through the Arts. The Coexist Foundation supported eudaemonia conferences, which was set up and is run by teachers to provide training in areas usually overlooked by commercial providers, to support these conferences, and in particular to open them to trainee teachers – giving them the opportunity to build up subject-knowledge and to acquire good resources to use in their classrooms.
