Testimonial


Mark L. Watkins
PhD in Legal Studies
April 26, 2015


“I researched several schools prior to enrolling in AIU. Few universities offered the PhD in legal studies and I held on to AIU information for at least a year before finally enrolling. My impressions are both accolades and in a form I hope will be taken as constructive criticism. I knew what I wanted to do (become an expert in the dynamics of self-represented parties in divorce). AIU’s Phase II, Curriculum Design, allowed me to create the program that would do that. Having been a Sociology professor for more than 10 years prior to designing my curriculum, I was prepared to go about it, but that might be tough for some. AIU did not offer any criticism or direction to modify the proposal I submitted, but I have no doubt that I’d have gotten help if I needed it. My advisor’s background was excellent for my curriculum. She had engaged in the kind of research (legal issues related to domestic violence) I was doing and understood the kinds of dynamics that I was researching in my studies. I even cited one of her academic papers in one of mine. I appreciated her feedback and it made my work better. I did not like lesser qualified individuals grading my work. On one occasion someone ran my work through TurnItIn.com and suggested that too much had not been my work (I will give them credit for excellent diplomacy in their critique). Fortunately, as a professor myself I have had training in use of TurnItIn.com and Plagerism.com and was able to point out the errors in that analysis (or failure to analyze as was the case) and AIU accepted the paper.

I could never have finished this program without the self-paced format. I am a busy professional —I ghost write for attorneys, I teach part time for two major US Universities, I mediate divorce and during the program I had to start managing my business. Amidst it all it took me five years to complete my program Part of why it took so long was because during the program my wife was diagnosed with brain cancer. AIU was very understanding and did not pressure me to complete the program. Staff was always friendly and expressed appropriate empathy for my situation.

After three years AIU did however exempt me from the Thesis portion of my program, which I completed anyway. AIU provided it’s reasons for doing so, but regardless, I believe that the Thesis is too integral a part of the program to exempt it in any circumstance (It certainly was in my case where I had planned it to utilize prior learning as a capstone to the original research I did to become an expert in the needs of self-represented parties). I am proud of my Thesis —it is doctoral level work like none other I have done to date— and believe the Judicial Council of California will be taken aback by both what I did as well as the results. Completion of my PhD was a lifelong goal. The program of study that I wanted was unique. So unique that I couldn’t have done it without designing it myself. AIU enabled me to do that in a way that no other university could and gave me the time to do it well.

“I have been a teacher in Guatemala since 2002. I love what I do. But at some point I felt I needed to learn more and be prepared to face Globalization and all of the shifts the world is taking so rapidly. My schedule and my difficulty working in a regular classroom, brought me to search for other methods. I had been learning on my own for a while, until I found AIU. These years have been thrilling, challenging myself to learn more, do more research, investigate and do my best. I was able to work at my own pace and use my creativity to complete assignments. I am very thankful for the opportunity and I encourage people around the world with the desire to learn to opt for Atlantic International University.

Thank you so much.






Retrospective (part 2) Life is a smörgåsbord*

After learning about life and death, human cruelty and cognitive learning, the author becomes and adult. She gets married and achieves “everything all those she used to have in pedestals were still waiting to achieve”, but then she learns that no matter what plans you lay...

I went into university to teach math and physics, but between the philosophy and psychology courses... I was mesmerized. How many different ways of thinking were there? Life was a smorgasbord of ideas to play with. There wasn’t enough time to learn all that was available to learn. People were often boring because they were stuck in one way of thinking and did not even realize the boxes that confined them were there. But there was an even bigger problem. The more you learned, the more you found out how much you didn’t know. Then you found out how much the masters didn’t know.

Lesson: That we didn’t even know the questions to ask. I met my husband at the age of 17, at an Edgar Cayce meeting. I thought he was brilliant. He had a photographic memory and could dance circles around me. Unfortunately, for me, he got lost in his music and while my curiosity,

intellect and knowledge kept expanding, his didn’t. He was a wonderfully spiritual man when we were going out. He was lost in the exploration of philosophies and ideas and spirituality. But all that got lost in his music. He started to get angry that I had surpassed him… he accused me that I had become the guru...while he was still looking for his. He then got hit by a car –life changed dramatically again. Another loss. What to do.

Lesson: You can abide by the rules, i.e., not drink, not smoke, not do drugs, not have premarital sex –it doesn’t mean that life will be kind. I set out to establish new goals, new parameters in my life. I had achieved everything I had set out to achieve with Daniel. Designed and built my first house; got my PhD in psychology; set up a successful clinic – but then lost my husband. The hurt was horrible but it became my drive to move on.

Lesson: No matter what plans you lay, God will change them. During my 17 years with Daniel, I got my BA, MA and PhD in psychology. Getting my PhD was interesting... at the convocation... I was standing in the halls with six other PhDs in psychology. They were all talking about getting a job and working for the government; getting into a serious relationship; paying off huge student loans; saving for a house. I never said anything –I had been working for the government for 7 years; had designed and built my own house; had been married for several years; had had my own clinic for several years; and had virtually no student loan.

Lesson: I had achieved everything all those I had had up on pedestals were still waiting to achieve. It changed my whole perception of who I was. After I lost Daniel, I got involved with a man who made me laugh… Daniel had never had a great sense of humor, he was a philosophy junky that loved music; warm, loving and affectionate, honorable and intelligent, but no time for me. His music came first; he came second; and me, the house, travel and socializing all came third. Tim was different. He was full of laughter; lots of fun; no intellectual development but what the hey, I had lots of stimuli with colleagues. He wanted to be with me. He wanted to do everything with me. It was really different. I was suddenly very important. I had said no to Tim for a long time before I suddenly shifted and did not understand why I was so attracted to him. We got together and it turned out that he was really a moody son of a B; he was lazy; and his lack of strategy; hypothetical reasoning; abstract reasoning etc etc was incredibly frustrating. He kept going off his meds (St John’s Wort) even though I repeatedly told him he would disrupt his neural growth hormone and could provoke psychosis. After the second bout of horrible psychosis –I explained that if he ever did that again without being tracked by a physician and telling me, I would leave no matter how much I loved him. He said he understood and wouldn’t do it again –he did. When I found out that he had gone of his meds again and that was the reason for the incredible psychosis –it was both easy and difficult to simply say: “I will no longer share my love and affection with you”. I turned around and walked out of the room. But the next eight months were even worse than the prior three.

Lesson: With Tim I learned more lessons than the whole of the rest of my life:
• Self acceptance, I was important

• That I could have, experience, and express anger and rage

• All about my relationship with my mother which was very dysfunctional: She could be as critical as she wanted | She could not be held accountable | If you held her accountable she made you into the bad guy until she apologized and accepted her forgiveness | She needed to be up on a pedestal | She was passive-aggressive

• How people make you the problem if you hold them accountable

• What it was like to live with someone who had no sense of responsibility or accountability

• What it was like to live with someone who could outright lie to you –looking you straight in the eye

• Trust had never been an issue in my life until now –now it was huge While trying to get Tim to leave my home, I went through hell.

Lesson: What it is like to live in fear

• What it means to leave work at 10 pm and keep driving till 12 am so that you didn’t have to come home to a crazy man that might kill you

• What people were like who operated from a place of vindictiveness and revenge

• I have written pages and pages of what I learned about life; about how I respond to challenge; my emotions; my beliefs; my coping skills... I lost over a million dollars because of Tim. I lost my house and four companies.

It was devastating. But what I learned about myself was huge. I started all over again. Set new goals. I saved for another house. Spent a year and a half looking for a new home... what did I want... Tim kept chasing me... I should forgive and forget... wasn’t I spiritual... wasn’t I a psychologist... anything line he could think of to guilt me, shame me, to come back... he was living in an apartment and working for his dad again.

Lesson: I learned to forgive, accept, and move on –very very difficult. To be continued...





From AIU to the UN Geneva Challenge

Interview with Julius Kwakun Kattah, student at AIU

Julius, tell us about this educational experience. How has the learning process based in Andragogy impacted your life professionally and personally?

Andragogy learning is intensive research based knowledge acquisition through the Internet. It is a classroomless way of learning. This is good for me, because it is fast, it helps me with my development, it leads me to design my own curriculum and to set the timetable for its execution. It is honestly a research talented learning process and first class, for mature student working is the BEST.

What made you decide to enroll at AIU?
Through AIU you have university standards to help the students teach themselves. It is the self-initiative that l have accepted to pursue my Masters and then continue with the PhD. It brought in me creativity and self-dependence. High sense of managerial strength. Academically speaking, tell us the level of AIU compared to other Universities. Compared to other universities l have attended, AIU is the best, this university is A-grade Andragogical University.

Was it easy for you to do your program by yourself?
l did set my dreams, I planned my work, dedicated much attention and focus on achieving a result. I have worked hard and I am still working hard to finish my PhD.

How is your AIU Degree helping in your professional career?

I am having new appointments, to do business, education and international economic consultancy perfectly.

Have you been able to help your community?
Yes, I am contributing to the community and to my country, Ghana, as a whole with wide spectrum of knowledge that I am acquiring at AIU. Tell us about your actual job and how has the knowledge that you have gained at Atlantic International University helped you. My job is Business, Education and International Economics Consultancy. I must admit that this knowledge acquisition from AIU is complete and unique and it is something l shall forever cherish and in the near future l shall contribute my quota as Alumni of the University. It is helping me achieve successive goals in any of my projects. It is results oriented.

What achievements have you obtained after completing this program?
I have been selected to contest in 2015 Geneva Challenge: Return Migration and Socio-Economic Development, organizae by the UN. If it was not for AIU, how would I know how to make full research with the Internet Andragogy skills? It is a great achievement to be with AIU.






We are informed of the number of university graduates who cannot find work and we begin to realize that the task of entering a company to pursue a gainful activity is difficult. The report provided by the World Bank (WB) in 2013 –report from 2014 has not been published– states that by 2020, 600 million more jobs will be needed than in 2005 and we are in 2015 and the International Labour Organisation (ILO) in its Executive Summary of the Global Employment Trends 2014 says there will be growth without increasing jobs positions.

From the above it follows that no matter who we are, young or mature, we will have part of these reports: employment is a situation that will not recover anytime soon in the same way that the digital world develops. What we are really seeing is that states all over the world are losing power and they do not perform all the functions their governed need.

To have certainty and predictability, States agree to participate in international organizations that deal with the monetary system, trade, the environment and safety; this participation affects negatively their sovereignty. This is what has driven the population to defend their rights activism and it is what has led to associations and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). NGOs are non-profit civic organizations that provide assistance to people solving aspects of life of human beings that the state has failed. This is where a field is created to generate my own job.

Creating an NGO
An NGO is a company that needs the infrastructure of all others: it needs resources and management. The first thing I should do is investigate what laws does the country where I live has for the welfare, which organizations provide support to the NGOs; for example there are countries where the State support these organizations. Financial support may also come from international organizations like the United Nations (UN).

To create my organization I can choose a program from Atlantic International University (AIU) that allows me to create my NGO; I should investigate the necessity areas of the communities in the country where I live to see if it will be in education, healthcare, agricultural development, for example. What I will create with my NGO is a business so I will need human and financial resources. In the NGOs, resources must be well managed so as to human resources I need to know how people is going to be organized; I need Human Resources Management; I need materials accounting for income and expenses in addition to the fixed costs. In the NGOs income may be from donors, then I should investigate whether in my country donations are tax-free and which companies can contribute. I will need professionals in the area of my NGO, some are volunteers and others may be people who donate their expertise. There are countries where governments allow events to acquire resources; I can see for these activities. What an NGO depends from; from the seriousness of the service provided, from the clarity of resource management and from responsibility of the people who form them so I have to see who I will integrate and where donations come from.

To select the subjects of my curriculum or program the following link will help me, document prepared by AIU. www.aiu.edu/curriculumdesign/ fullwidth/index.html















Stand Up To Learn More

Standing desks increase a student’s engagement and attentiveness
Mark Benden originally became interested in the desks as a means to reduce childhood obesity and relieve stress on spinal structures.



A study from the Texas A&M Health Science Center School of Public Health finds students with standing desks are more attentive than their seated counterparts. In fact, preliminary results show 12 percent greater on-task engagement in classrooms with standing desks, which equates to an extra seven minutes per hour of engaged instruction time. The findings, published in the International Journal of Health Promotion and Education, were based on a study of almost 300 children in second through fourth grade who were observed over the course of a school year. Engagement was measured by on-task behaviors such as answering a question, raising a hand or participating in active discussion and offtask behaviors like talking out of turn.

Standing desks –also known as stand-biased desks– are raised desks that have stools nearby, enabling students to sit or stand during class at their discretion. Lessons learned from Mark Benden’s (Ph.D., CPE, associate professor at the Texas A&M Health Science Center School of Public Health,) research in this area led to creation of Stand2Learn™, an offshoot company of a faculty-led startup that manufactures a classroom version of the standbiased desk.

Benden’s previous studies have shown the desks can help reduce obesity –with students at standing desks burning 15 percent more calories than students at traditional desks (25 percent for obese children)– and there was anecdotal evidence that the desks also increased engagement. The latest study was the first designed specifically to look at the impact of classroom engagement.








Pablo Neruda Poet of the People




Once there was a little boy named Neftalí who loved wild things wildly and quiet things quietly.

From the moment he could talk, he surrounded himself with words. Neftalí discovered the magic between the pages of books. When he was sixteen, he began publishing his poems as Pablo Neruda.

Pablo wrote poems about the things he loved – things made by his friends in the café, things found at the marketplace, and things he saw in nature. He wrote about the people of Chile and their stories of struggle. Because above all things and above all words, Pablo Neruda loved people. Pablo Neruda: Poet of the People, by Monica Brown. Illustrated by Julie Paschkis. www.amazon.com
