    • Afro-responsibility

      Afro-responsibility

      The history of Africa is filled with themes of oppression through colonialism and slave trade. Over the years as the world systems evolved, colonialism and slavery where abolished. They did however, leave some remnants impacting the the socio-economic and environmental outlook of Africa as well as the African identity. The status of an African among other races has always been challenged by the African himself as well as other races around him. Afro Responsibility involves embracing one's identity as an African and taking elements from the African culture to inform and direct every sphere of life. The term was first used by Justina Kes Agbosa and expanded by Emelda Itai Daka defining it as the notion that we have a duty as Africans to adopt African indigenous knowledge, indigenous resources and indigenous innovations as the foundation for all socio-economic and environmental activities, in bringing solutions to African problems. To build on this concept, the course will focus on grassroots innovations, Ubuntu African philosophy and African identity

      Basic Skills

      In this course we present the range of basic skills required to pursue many online career opportunities that are listed in the #Empowered course series. We revisit several principles covered in the previous course on learning to learn, reviewing again—and emphasizing—the notion that learning in and of itself is a skill. We also emphasize the development of soft skills; we review how critical soft skills are in most any industry. We also review basic computer skills—and the concomitant bare minimum hardware requirements—that will be needed by most employers.

      Learning to learn

      Though this course is obviously open to all students of all stripes, around the world, the content of this course is written explicitly with a particular student in mind; a student that is residing in the Philippines that is looking for new ways to attain new marketable skills by learning online. Further, we are targeting students that are exploring new careers in the context of new and imposing “ways of life,” due to the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. Various Labor offices refer to “displaced workers” as those that have suddenly lost their jobs or careers due to the immediate effects of a milestone event, such as the outbreak of COVID-19 worldwide, which has fundamentally altered operations for many metropolises around the world, including Metro Manila in the Philippines. The content of this course is largely produced by volunteers of the Amie Santos Foundation, which has offices in the United States and the Philippines, as well as the Rotary Club of Makati Premier District— both non-profit NGOs that operate in the Philippines.

Based on the student’s accounts, research can be burdensome if the general template is not established for the many possible types of product development studies. Because product development can take different directions and different methods, it can be perplexing for students to follow the template that is not as open to new forms of innovations.

      The importance of play in schools

      Is play key to developing creativity and critical thinking?In this article, I discuss the importance of play within the home and educational settings. Sadly playtime seems to be seen as unimportant in regards to the more mainstream teaching methods once children leave the foundation stage. As a forest school leader play is a fundamental right that sadly seems to have been eroded in many schools, particularly in the USA where 'recess' has been shortened, mostly to enable more time in the classroom. Hopefully, as we place more emphasis on good mental health the importance of play within the context of education will return.

      Handbook of Transpersonal Mindfulness

      The handbook of Transpersonal Mindfulness is a manual that deals with the integration of 2 subjects: transpersonal psychology and mindfulness practice. By integrating the approach, the fundamental principles of Transpersonal Psychology and mindfulness practice, I attempt to propose a new term ‘'transpersonal mindfulness'’. I develop this concept in the handbook, by way of lucid examples, personal experience, research and learnings borrowed from practice. I believe to be the original creater of this term "Transpersonal Mindfulness", which I coined serendipitously when immersed in the state of 'flow'. I intend to qualitatively describe this state and help the reader incorporate the same into his/her everyday routine.

    • Research methodology for health and social care

      Research methodology for health and social care

      Health and social care professionals carry out a form of research whenever they observe, take measurements and refer to other professionals to gather and record information about the individuals in their care. They interpret the information and use it to assess the individual’s progress against the individual’s care plan. If necessary, the plan is changed and the effect of this is also monitored. This is regarded as informal research because it is part of routine health and social care practice and relates to the care of individuals. However, all new advances in health and social care are tested using a formal research process, which involves specific planning, collecting relevant information, interpreting it and publishing the results of the research. This unit investigates different functions of health and social care research and the principles that underpin it. You will explore ethical and legal issues relating to health and social care research and different techniques that may be used to gather research data. You will plan a small-scale research project on a topic relating to health and social care, subject to consent from your centre and the assessment requirements of the unit. The plan will include a justification of your choice of methods to gather new information in the context of existing knowledge of the subject gathered from a literature review. You will carry out the research and produce a report in which you present your results, interpret them and evaluate the research methodology you used in the project.
