Leadership Development Programme

Leadership Development Programme

Date: 16 February 2011 (Wednesday)

Student leadership takes on many forms and shapes. All students are unique and have their own individual strengths and needs. Student leadership development should therefore go beyond the training of hand-on interpersonal skills, but also designed as a learning process to help students understand more about themselves and nurture a concern about their environment.

Launched by the University in 2001, the Leadership Development Programme is a unique credit bearing programme established to nurture the leadership potential of selected students and prepare them for the challenges and opportunities of a new era. As we celebrate our ten years anniversary, a new curriculum will be implemented for the programme. It will emphasis on the importance of global awareness and community engagement, and make use of participatory, experiential, and problem-based learning to help students to acquire a variety of capabilities that are important for leadership development, including critical thinking, problem solving, and the ability to put plans into practice.

In this upcoming GE Lunch Seminar session, our colleagues from the Leadership Development Section will introduce the new curriculum and the ongoing recruitment exercise for the 2011 intake. Participants will also have a chance to share their experience in nurturing student leadership in their respective programmes and units.
