interdisciplinarity link


Meaning: Interdisciplinarity occurs when disciplines intermesh and collaborate among themselves.

The notion provides students with an opportunity to create and pursue interdependent, innovative teaching which does not fit into traditional disciplinary categories.

experiential link


"experiential education is a process through which a learner constructs knowledge, skill and value from direct experience."

spirituality link


Spiritual wellness does not just “happen”. It requires time and attention. Unless it is nourished and exercised regularly, it will not be there to support us when we need it to counteract cynicism and despair. How do we go about getting in touch with our core and developing into spiritually healthy beings? A first step is to create an atmosphere that invites spiritual development. Time must be set aside to be quiet – for solitude, reflection, and meditation.

multi sensory link

Multi-sensory Link

Albert Einstein said, 'Learning is experiencing. Everything else is just information.' His insight suggests that we must experience our learning by using our complex sensory systems. Our species has an innate need to see, touch, taste, feel, and hear the features of any new object in order to understand it better," (Wesson, 2002).
