About the Congress

The Congress will deliberate on evolving the “culture of education” for  self-awareness and empowerment as the core. It will  focus on:

  • Self: Self seeks to access qualities that constitute a person's uniqueness or essential being: The Congress will focus on Identity, Planes and Parts of Mind-Body, Attitude and Behavior, Learning and Cognition, Psychology, Personal Strengths and Skills, Personality, Approaches to Work and Fulfilment.
  • Mentoring and Teacher Training – Mentorship is a personal developmental relationship in which a more experienced or more knowledgeable person helps to guide a less experienced or less knowledgeable person. It is a process for the informal transmission of knowledge, social capital, and the psychosocial support perceived by the recipient, student or mentee, as relevant to work, career, or professional development. E-mentoring is a means of providing a guided mentoring relationship using online software, email, social networks and other web-based solutions.
  • Wellness – Wellness is generally used to mean a healthy balance of the mind, body and spirit that results in an overall feeling of well-being. We may define it as an integral way of living and functioning which is oriented toward maximizing the potential of which the individual is capable. It requires that the individual maintain a continuum of balance, good inner and outer health and purposeful direction within the environment where he is functioning.”
    WE ASC 2013 aims to Facilitate the design and application of wellness programs, curricula, modules and encourage integral wellness centres in educational and other  environments.

The 2013 Congress will facilitate  developing courseware and mentoring programs encompassing the the following areas - innovation, self, management, assessment, learning, research, empowerment, leadership, Indigenous knowledge systems with optimum applications of inner capacities and with intelligent use of inter-personal training modules, Technology and networks.
