On Saturday 2 November, students of BPS 403 Higher Certificate in Buddhist Studies presented their much anticipated team assignments to course lecturers and peers. The 11 teams had five weeks to research the development of Buddhism in their chosen Southeast Asian country and prepare their presentations as part of the course assessment.
The audience was brought back in time as presenters explored the contributing factors and important historical events which led to the establishment and propagation of Buddhism in this region. Some even conducted interviews with monastics and surveys within the Buddhist community for current perspectives.
We congratulate and commend all students for their extensive efforts and commitment. They have creatively demonstrated their research efforts and also evidenced good teamwork to deliver meaningful outcomes. We rejoice in the learning spirit of our students and wish them well in the upcoming written assessment.
