Abstract:
This study is a description and evaluation of the training programmes for Islamic education teachers in the Sultanate of Oman. However, the evaluation is limited to the specialisation module of the programmes. The introduction gives a general view of the importance of teachers in general and Islamic education teachers in particular. Also, it shows briefly the attention that has been given to teacher-training all over the world. Chapter One outlines the justification for the study, its aim, questioners and the implementation of the questionnaire (that was applied to evaluate the specialisation field of the present training programmes for Islamic education teachers in Oman) and data collection. Chapter Two gives a general view of teacher-training programmes in some industrial countries with particular attention to the content and problems of such programmes in the Arab countries. It also presents some previous studies related on Islamic education teachers and their training programmes. Chapter Three investigates education in Oman before 1970. This description covers the system of education in the Madrasat al-Qur’ân, mosques and other madrasahs (which offered the same level of education as the mosque), the prestige and role of the Mu’allim and the Sheikh in Omani society, and the beginning of modern education in the country. Chapter Four shows the development of education and training programmes for Islamic education teachers in Oman after 1970. Chapter Five describes the training programmes for Islamic education teachers at Sultan Qaboos University and other colleges of education which are controlled by the Ministry of Higher Education. Chapter Six gives a brief description of training programmes for Islamic education teachers in the universities of the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Bahrain, and it ends with a comparison of the programmes in the four countries. Chapter Seven evaluates some points in those programmes which were not included in the questionnaire. The final two chapters (eight and nine) present, analyse and discuss the findings from the questionnaire.
