Applied Africology v1.2

Enrolled: 49 students
Duration: 12
Lectures: 10
Level: Beginner

Africology is an interdisciplinary academic discipline that studies the history and culture of African people around the world. -Wikipedia

In Applied Africology, rather than trying to solve a problem as it would be in a different context, we explore the given problem within its African context and may re-interpret or restructure it in order to suggest a relevant path to a solution.

This course uses practical examples and African methods to introduce you to Africology as a living and evolving pan-African way of thinking. In further modules and lectures we explore different fields in which Africology can be applied. These fields range from Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (also known as STEAM), to Entrepreneurship, Leadership, Project Management, etc.

In this course you will:

Develop critical thinking skills

Become more efficient in problem solving, project management, and ideation

Learn Systems Science in an African context

Increase employability

Reinforce your sense of identity
