Join us at SBC for our regular College Community Seminars as a specialist in the field gives a theological insight into their specific area of interest. On Wednesday 12th April between 1:30pm and 3pm, Yonah Matemba will be sharing about the area of Religious and Moral Education in schools. This will be a great opportunity, not only for anyone considering RE teaching as a career, but more broadly for anyone who may work in or with a school / school-aged children. Beyond that Yonah is highly qualified, not only in this particular area, but also lists as his research interests, Multicultural Issues in Education, Health and Well-being Education, Religion/Spirituality of Incarcerated Adults and Youth, Chaplaincy in Sacred and Secular Spaces, Indigenous Knowledge and Education, and Comparative and International Education. It is sure to be a fascinating seminar!
Yonah writes: ‘I am from Malawi (‘warm heart of Africa’) and joined the School of Education, University of the West of Scotland (UWS), UK, in January 2011 as a full-time lecturer in education before becoming a senior lecturer in social sciences education in February 2015. I am a qualified school teacher with full professional status by the General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS) and also a fellow of the Higher Education Academy. Previously I have worked as a secondary school teacher in Malawi (1991-1994), Botswana (1995-2000) and Scotland (2004-2007), and also lectured at the University of Botswana (part-time 1998-2000), Molepolole College of Education (full-time 2001-2003), Catholic University of Malawi (part-time 2009) and University of Glasgow (part-time 2007-2010).’ (full bio here)
