Abstract

This paper describes the findings of a qualitative study utilising the phenomenographic approach. This research was aimed to identify qualitatively some different ways of Muslim student teachers’ (N=15) experience on moral education as a school subject, using essays. The findings indicated that the target phenomenon was discussed through the understanding and experience of the teaching of moral education as a school subject in a variety of ways. The hierarchically-ordered categories arrived at vary along several themes of deeper understanding. The findings are expected to be useful for the basis for planning experiences with a view to broadening Moral Education student teachers’ understanding of moral education towards the adoption of a substantive idea of Moral Education in their pedagogy. This will help teachers who have no experience to be well-prepared and better evolved in their pedagogy of moral education.
