The website serves as a hub where Buddhist educators can access and share lesson plans, articles, videos, teachings, and practices.
Middle Way Education has launched a new website to allow institutions and individuals involved in education to share their curricula, knowledge, experience, and resources.
Middle Way Education (MWE), a nonprofit organization founded in 2017 and guided by Buddhist teacher Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, spent two years researching and designing the website, middlewayeducation.org. The site contains lesson plans, articles, videos, audio teachings, and practices contributed by organizations from all over the world, including the Rubin Museum of Art, Lion’s Roar, the International Dunhuang Project, Panyaden International School, and Bodhi Kids.
“If you’re looking for inspiration on teaching Buddhist concepts in a classroom, advice for running a summer camp, or information on starting a school, there are resources scattered here and there, but often you’ll come up empty handed,” said site manager Claire Zimmerman in a press release. “With middlewayeducation.org, Buddhists from different traditions and countries have one place where they can find, access, and share resources that already exist and can upload their own.”
Anyone can sign up to become a member of the website for free and access the database of resources, engage in forum discussions, upload their own resources, and add events to a Buddhist education calendar.
