Leadership Competencies

Through teaching Dhamma knowledge and practices, the leadership competencies are inculcated in an integrated manner through suitable, engaging lesson processes, activities and routines (e.g. via reflective questioning techniques and co-operative learning approaches and classroom processes such as voluntary work). Experiential learning opportunities such as outdoor learning and visits to social welfare organisations are planned to enrich the DDP experience.

 

Learning outcomes of each leadership competency acquisition are also delineated to provide clarity for achievable teaching and learning goals.

 

Volunteer Teachers with the interest and aptitude to teach go through basic training and are supported by experienced teachers.
