EduDevelopment: 8-Dimensional Achiever and Leader Development

 

Global challenges in modern times are affecting Global Prosperity, and require new thinking processes, new approaches and strategies, the development of new technologies, as well as the generation of new knowledge [= Science].

 

A new kind of visionary, Global leader is needed.

 

Global Trends and Demographics:

Mounting problems in the World require new teaching and training strategies.

 

Rapid Global population growth leads to several potential crisis areas:

A lack of education security in Global context has become an area of universal concern

The present high youth unemployment rate in Global context is reaching crisis proportions

  • A lack of suitable infrastructure for World class education is a 3rd serious issue in a significant number of under-resourced countries. 
  • The lack of access to basic necessities has become a 4th critical Global issue, and serious “Water & Wealth” related concerns in a significant number of countries are affecting the World Community as a whole: homelessness is becoming a serious Global problem

Global trends show that the World is rapidly developing into 3-storey, compartmentalized and unconnected Community consisting of Penthouse Dwellers [The Have-Alls], Basement Dwellers [The Have-Some’s] and Cave Dwellers [Have-Nothings] as principal groupings.

 

The Global Community is facing a dysfunctional future and functional intervention is an urgent necessity: The creation of a One Storey Global Village where all “dwellers” have reasonably equal access to vital necessities is an absolute pre-condition for Global Prosperity

 

Finding Practical Solutions

In present times the World population urgently needs well-designed solutions to address these issues. 

 

Profession specific attribute development with internationally accredited, multi-disciplinary achievement as foundation stone [“Kick-Start” Solution] for leader development, has become a very urgent Global requirement.

 

The establishment of “EduDevelopment” as the discipline and Science that focuses on multi-disciplinary, profession specific attribute development [and attribute group development] is a key “bridging” solution:

  • EduDevelopment creates Osmotic Funnels for the free-flow of functional K.S.E.T. [Knowledge, Skills, Experience and Technology], from high attribute concentration environments to low attribute level environments to achieve a balanced [= evenly resourced] Global teaching and learning community.
  • EduDevelopment is a Specialized Discipline that focuses on Profession Specific Attribute Development iro the K.S.E.T. principles:
    • The Attainment of Knowledge [= Memory based learning]
    • The development Skills
    • The gaining of Experience
    • Technological Invention: 
    • The functional management [= Understanding, appreciation and “handling”] of critical technologies
    • The design of new technologies, and the unique application of existing technologies
    • Key components of EduDevelopment are the accurate (i) measurement and (ii) tracking of profession specific attributes and achievements, and its publication in a Globally accessible data base
  • EduDevelopment promotes Global Prosperity in the Global Village by Bridging the following:
    • The knowledge, skills and experience gap [The K.S.E.T. Gap] between (i) School and Boardroom, and (ii) between countries [Education & Training Systems
    • The gap between (i) Academic Standards [= Education as in “theory”] and (ii) the practical application of theory in various countries
    • The Investment:Achievement gap
    • The gap between financial dependence and sustainable self-reliance [fiscal autonomy]
    • Entrepreneurial markets between communities in various countries
  • EduDevelopment specializes in the innovative development and utilization of infrastructure utilization and development [“Innovention”]
  • EduDevelopment does not only develop professionals [Such as Engineers], it also develops coaches, mentors and tutors for emerging professionals [Such as engineers]: the Attribute Development Practitioner [ADP].   

EduDevelopment Practitioners

EduDevelopment requires an interdisciplinary occupation, that of the Attribute Development Practitioner [ADP]. The ADP is an interdisciplinary specialist of Global standing, with a specific, unique, New Generation Attribute Group:

  • The ADP has to act as internationally accredited coach and mentor, evaluator and judge, project manager, systems designer, as well as supervisor for students from various countries who participate in the EduDevelopment Programme.
  • The Attribute Development Practitioner is a specialist in the 6 Development/Achievement Areas:
