I embarked on a Doctorate of Philosophy in Educational
Leadership and Administration at Atlantic International University (AIU) on
January 19, 2017.
My first assignment was to write and submit a motivational
letter. Upon performing this activity I was offered a chance to embark on my
study after taking care of my requisite financial obligations.
I was then requested to submit a biography of my
educational journey along with a detailed curriculum vitae. These documents were graded and I was then
requested to produce a course outline. This document included a number of
courses which included:
Writing for PHD Students
in a Diverse Society
Finance and Budgeting
and Governance of Educational Institutions
Methods in Educational Research
I also engaged in open courses from the University which I
found interesting and educational.
I thoroughly enjoyed the experience as I learnt to be more
tolerant and resilient as I was given the autonomy by the university to learn
using the constructivist approach as proposed by Jerome Bruner(1986, 1990,
My experience as a student of AIU has had a positive impact
of my view of the world and my ability to be a catalyst of change.
I am a proud alumni of AIU.
