Dimapur, October 18: A three days interactive session on various topics ranging from leadership values to learning systems as well as the intricacies involved in applying for overseas education concluded today with Dr MegoHaralu as the resource person here at Tetso college premises in Sovima, Dimapur.
As part of the college’s DOT (Degree Of Thought) Talks lecture series, Dr Haralu, an education consultant with Quantum Education Network, held three sessions namely ‘Leadership theory and organization management,’ ‘Learning outcomes on the online learning platform and earning an online degree from US institutions,’ and ‘The steps for studying abroad – Scholarships, academic disciplines, work-study, application procedures and immigration pathways for Bachelor, Master and Doctorate studies’ which was attended by students, HoDs and faculty of the college.
On the first day, Dr Haralu emphasized on the qualities of being an able leader which can be achieved by establishing a symbiotic relationship between leaders and followers. A leader cannot be a leader without followers and followers need each other to maintain a relationship, he said, but cautioned that power needs to be utilized by those people who have the moral aptitude to handle it because power has the ability to corrupt.
“We must find collaborative ways to tackle any issue rather than use conflict – for this institutional goals are important,” the former Dean of International Education at Campbellsville University – Kentucky, USA said.
On the second day, Dr Haralu spoke on the topic of learning management systems (LMS) which are software applications for e-learning and to supplement classroom courses.
The final session of the lecture series witnessed the resource speaker enlightening the students on the vast array of courses available in institutions across the globe such as humanities, business administration, sports management, mass communication, criminal justice, music, fine arts and theological studies, to name a few. He also divulged information regarding documents and paperwork needed to apply for these institutions.
Tetso College vice-principal HewasaLorin expressed gratitude to the resource speaker for sharing meaningful insights and hoped that it would have a bearing on the students as and when they venture abroad for further studies.
Meanwhile, Dr Haralu also expressed willingness to send some of the college’s students to the US on an overseas summer tour in the month of July next year. (Page News Service)
