AFRICAN COLLEGE OF NATUROPATHY FROM THE EDUCATION PERSPECTIVE OF THE 21ST CENTURY
To be a higher learning institution concerned about generating cultural development alternatives likely to be sustained in order to lead to a more efficient administration of the world village and its environment, exerting human and community rights through diversity with the ultimate goal of the satisfaction and evolution of the world.
The empowerment of the individual towards the convergence of the world through a sustainable educational design based on andragogy and omniology.
ACN is striving to regain the significance of the concept of education, which is rooted into the Latin "educare", meaning "to pull out", breaking loose from the paradigm of most XXIst century universities with their focus on "digging and placing information" into students' heads rather than teaching them to think.
For ACN, the generation of "clones" that traditional universities are spreading throughout the world is one of the most salient reasons for today's ills.
In fact, students trained at those educational institutions never feel a desire to "change the world" or the current status quo; instead, they adjust to the environment, believe everything is fine, and are proud of it all.
In a world where knowledge and mostly information expire just like milk, we must reinvent higher education in which each student, as the key player, is UNIQUE within an intertwined environment.
This century's higher education must generate new knowledge bits although this may entail its separation from both the administrative bureaucracy and the faculty that evolve there as well.
It is important to direct the spotlight on the publicity most higher educational institutions orchestrate about the hugeness of their campus, their libraries (many of which are quite obsolete), and more commonly their accreditation and/or academic standing.
What this means is, there has been no change whatsoever even though the current system is not working. African College of Naturopathy thinks that a university or institution of higher learning should be increasingly integrated into the "real world", society, the economy, and the holistic human being.
As such, it should concentrate on its goal, which is the student, and get him/her deeply immersed into a daily praxis of paradigm shifts, along with the Internet and research, all these being presently accessible only to a small minority of the world community.
African College of Naturopathy students must accomplish their self-learning mission while conceptualizing it as the core of daily life values through the type of experiences that lead to a human being's progress when information is converted into education.
The entire African College of Naturopathy family must think of higher education as a setting that values diversity and talent in a way that trains mankind not only for the present but above all for a future that calls every day for professionals who empower themselves in academic and professional areas highly in demand in our modern society.
We shall not forget that, at ACN, students are responsible for discovering their own talents and potential, which they must auto-develop in such a way that the whole finish product opens as a flower that blossoms every year more openly. ACN students must show interest in topics not immediately related to their careers.
This is the trend that allows for more creativity that can be used to enhance different kinds of solutions with a trademark of effectiveness and efficiency, all this with a standing better than the competition's, and with the ultimate goal that love of the job prevails over thirst for power.
The African College of Naturopathy's stance is against the idea of the campus as a getaway from day-to-day pressure since we believe reality is the best potential-enhancer ever; one truly learns through thinking, brainstorming ideas, which leads to new solutions, and ultimately the rebirth of a human being fully integrated in a sustainable world environment.
Self-learning is actualized more from within than a top-down vantage point to influence instead of requesting, ideas more than power. We need to create a society where solidarity, culture, life, not political or economic rationalism and more than technological structures, are prioritized.
In short, the characteristics of African College of Naturopathy students and alumni remain independence, creativity, self-confidence, and ability to take risk towards new endeavours.This is about people's worth based not on what they know but on what they do with what they know.
African College of Naturopathy believes that the life that is worth living is the one built upon an idea that blossoms. Yet, unfortunately, we are used to receiving everything from the higher ups. This results from a world vision that clings on the hierarchy-based bureaucracy and mercantilism still being the driving force behind all our undertakings. We believe less and less in the common freedom of people. We must bring more to life, other than what we craft and what happens, healing, meditation, joyfulness, festive mood, including what is amusing. Dr Alpha Grace, called it the "desire of eternal adventure."
How do people assimilate this desire of adventure at African College of Naturopathy? Well, it is with more reading of online resources. Through applications from reading of online resources in work, social, and family settings, which is the direction in which we are heading, reflecting deeply and meditating upon the outcomes with constant interaction and practical work.
All this is a giant step towards the creation of new pragmatic ideologies as the foundation of human research and evolution. For us, humanities, philosophy, medicine, and art must be naturally and constantly embedded into our intellectual, ethical, spiritual and moral formation; these entail the virtues that guarantee our sense of togetherness and help us transcend what is ephemeral in technology: all this is rooted into the idea that, according to a significant body of research, 90% of problems organizations must deal with, are human in nature.
Let us remember that people, and not the professions, are the true goal of education. It is critical for our African culture to be embarked into this logical trend that professional endeavours in this century are experimenting a paradigm shift focusing way beyond the simple duties of a job. In other words, success in a position is measured up with more than the parameters of the job description and the salary associated with it.
For African College of Naturopathy, such evaluation of performance is positive through such qualities and entities as the ability to act, self-concept, integrity and moral character development, independence, social responsibility, and the ability to generate jobs.
Other criteria that must be considered are the percentage of people who make a living out of the results of the professional's performance, an economic contribution to the world community, intellectual production, solidarity with others, etc.
It is becoming increasingly essential to develop a sense of self-sufficiency so that progress becomes contingent upon a job so that, ultimately, we gain some mental flexibility and use it to foster a certain entrepreneurial and professional mindset in our environment.
It is the hope of African College of Naturopathy that its student body develop long term goals not only for its organizational spirit but also for its human endeavours.
African College of Naturopathy offers educational opportunities to adults from around the world so that they can better themselves using their own potential to manage their personal, global cultural development.
This is actualized through the evaluation of their credentials towards excellence, and this also implies a capability for sustainable results-based performance. The foundational axis of such a philosophy lies upon self-actualized knowledge and information, with no room for obsoleteness, which is embedded into our DISTANCE LEARNING SYSTEM based on ANDRAGOGY and OMNIOLOGY.
The goal of this paradigm is to empower learners and help them take advantage of the enormous array of resources from the world environment to eliminate the current continuum of poverty and limitations.
To this end, depending on the circumstances, students can convert their past into a self-propelled growth module constantly on the move, away from the accredited, traditional systems that foster limitations and caducity.
This will become a crude reality with respect for, and practice of, human and community rights through experiences, investigations, practicum work, and/or examinations, according to an independent student's individual idiosyncrasy at African College of Naturopathy.
Everything takes place in a setting that fosters diversity with more than 1 millions full texts, +1000 ebooks, and bibliographic references in English, Portuguese and French languages ; while advisors and consultants with doctorate degrees and specializations in people development monitor learning processes; in addition to colleagues and associations in different academic areas; so that they can reach together the satisfaction and the progress of humanity with peace and harmony.
