Currently, I am working on my PhD dissertation titled “Life skills education for K-12 curriculum: Initiatives in Pakistan”. Life skills are defined by WHO as ‘psychological competencies of individuals for their positive and adaptive behavior that enable them to deal with everyday challenges in effective way’. I believe that these competencies enable individuals to transform their learnt knowledge, skills and values into positive behavior which will help them to live a better life by planning for their future, choose better options, and make accurate decisions. Initially, I have explored the current practices and provisions of life skills education in the policy documents and K-12 curriculum. However, I am more interested in exploring the practical instructional strategies which could help to develop life skills among students through teaching learning process, particularly, the potential role of teachers in this regard and what type of training they require for effective teaching of life skills to their students.
