Humanity and its progress is marked by the commitment to learning
in all its forms. This commitment is demonstrated through the
embrace of innovative teaching delivery methods beginning with
Socrates and extending through the practices employed in many
eminent educational institutions throughout the ages.
To seek to inform and build knowledge is to enable societies to
develop successfully – to learn is to lead. It is the challenge of all
educators to assist in the building of social capital and to develop our
civil societies for continued and sustained successful outcomes across
all communities. Our challenge is to not only deliver knowledge
but to deliver it in accessible and innovative ways.
