Teaching Wisdom in Islamic Higher Education in the West

Today, it is fair to assume that education in Muslim teaching and learning contexts has gone beyond the simple transfer of information. In this light, this lecture series will examine the prerequisites and conditions which are necessary for forging a connection between information and values and for furthering the relationship between knowledge and action, which we seek to conflate under the noble term »wisdom«, especially in the context of Western higher education.
