One can acquire knowledge through study. However, in order to acquire wisdom, one must learn to observe, question, and reflect from within.
Our online workshop on “Building Academic Intelligence” on May 22, 2020, with leading members of ThinQ, an academic platform committed to helping students develop intellectual wellness, was a highly engaging and fun workout for the mind.
The facilitators, Aditi Ahuja, KP Mohanan, Madhav Kaushish, and Rashmi Jejurikar, walked students through three different examples to develop academic intelligence:
These theories were presented in an interactive manner with multiple activities and questions. The activities and questions allowed students to think about their own moral judgments. And analyze if they would change their ethical axioms in certain situations and question information that comes their way.
Our facilitators also asked students thought-provoking questions on how we take responsibility for our own knowledge? Or, how we learn to find our own conjectures, patterns, and theories, and constantly ask why we came to those conclusions.
Leading students to the most important takeaway from the evening. To constantly develop academic intelligence at every stage of life, and construct and evaluate knowledge. As Mr. KP Mohanan put it during the workshop, “To convert words and sentences into knowledge, you need to engage with the words because if you don’t it’s only just information.”
Worked extensively with the nature of academic knowledge and inquiry, against the backdrop of human beliefs.
