We are delighted to welcome you all as you embark on your journey into the field of teacher education.

I know that this will be an adventure that extends far beyond the classroom. You join a committed, energetic community of educators, deeply engaged in the work of connecting human lives with opportunities to learn. Thank you for choosing this path in your own life.

Transformative Education is the call of the times. At the core of Transformative Learning Theory, is the process of “perspective transformation”, with three dimensions: psychological (changes in understanding of the self), convictional (revision of belief systems), and behavioral (changes in lifestyle) (Clark 1993).  If indeed this is pursued, we would expect a truly transformed society which is the real objective of education.  This is both the challenge and the motivation for us to move on, move forward and transform everyone starting with ourselves. In order to do this we should be able to understand and practice student-centered learning particularly in the light of the 21st century education.

I hope you enjoy your studies at Capitol University. This is a place where you can delve into the possibilities of education and its allied fields, not only as a tradition or a profession but as a way of being in the world. We see education and life as vitally interconnected. This means that you – your roots as a person, your vision as an advocate of human development, your drive to change the world – matter to us greatly as we develop our programs, degrees, and services.
