Personal statement

As a PhD graduate in science and Art of Teaching-learning(pedagogy)from Lausanne University-Switzerland ,I have adopted life long learning,as a vision ,mission and objective,in my personal and professional life.Thanks to this life strategy,as a responsible scholar and world citizen I have learned to be focused on how learning occur through interaction with environment.Therefore,I have tried through projects I have been responsible as instructional designer and methodologist ,to use critical approach to learning with adults ,based on Paolo Ferirre practice. It has been a very challenging ,and rewarding experience,before advent of ICT. And now with emergence of information society,I am looking towards inclusive knowledge society(WSIS+10 :outcomes and beyond 2015).I try to understand changing information structure,in order to upgrade education schemes and technology accordingly and claim it in line with MDGs. That is why I think ,in digital age with open access and open education,we have to work on critical thinking development of world citizens,as responsible consumers-producers, towards quality life with peace and sustainable development.
