Export of Knowledge
Every time invitation comes for an academic to speak at an academic or related event, the forces of cooperative learning are being engaged. Invitations are flying around the globe every day and many are seizing such speakership opportunities to teach others what they need to know about their areas of competence and terrain. Knowledge and skills are actually exported from the simmering pot of a locality, school, or nation to a foreign ground, where the innovations, skills, ideas, or abilities are treasured or built upon for better priming of available learning solutions.

A Diversified Approach to Learning
I can’t help but think of the way an inter-cultural and multi-disciplinary approach to learning is rapidly changing the learning process for many learners and colourfully diversifying expertise and competence in our day.

Hoarding of Knowledge and Knowledge Revolution
A few years ago, it was an (unofficial) norm to hoard knowledge in the pretense that dispersing enough information about a field could lead to ‘quackery’ or could put the real ‘owners of the field’ out of job. Those were the days when doctors thought they knew patients better than the patients knew themselves! Patients’ opinions were jettisoned and every attempt by a patient to participate in the activities that were being planned for his own benefit was stiffly resisted. The resultant passivity of the patient compromised management and even made the doctor miserable.

Opening the door to a new day in diagnostic and (patient) managerial discourse has evened the scores and liberated the doctor from the, sometimes lonely, miserable, ivory tower of misdiagnosis, mismanagement, and being the focal point of the attacks of the aggrieved patient.

A similar revolution is taking place in other areas of human activities and endeavours. Academic activities are enhanced with diverging views of scholars. The flavour an academic’s discipline, abilities, and background can add to a learner’s tutelage can be exciting. With what is going on in the academics today, versatility and informed-exposure can be brought to a learner at the point of teaching and mentoring – sometimes from foreign crucibles. And this is, to say the least, exciting.

Leveraging on the Opportunity
We can leverage on the opportunities that abound in other fields to better our scholarship. We can raise support for an academic cause through this convergence of erudition. As we share experiences and scholarship across cultures and national boundaries, one thing is sure, a revolution in learning is, subtly, taking place. Future generations will be better positioned to tackle the challenges of everyday life through the instrumentality of this great form of knowledge sharing.
