Individualised Self-Paced Learning (ISPL) @ BBSS

Individualised Self-Paced Learning (ISPL) is one of the many approaches BBSS takes to instil in students the importance and need to be independent and self-directed learners. It also provides an excellent opportunity for students to apply HOM consistently. ISPL supports independent study where learning is viewed as an active process not a passive one.

Our Objectives:

  • Students learn to take more ownership of their own learning.
  • Students learn to self-manage and self-monitor.
