Integration of Ideas and Disciplines
The talk explains the value of integrating ideas using day-to-day learning concepts in real life scenarios. The value of integrating ideas learned in an academic institution would be measured concerning once daily lifestyles. The speaker notes that the integration of these ideas should make an intellectual level of any student as a means of securing basic needs such as food and shelter. This is a common phenomenon where a substantial number of graduates end up with miserable lives as a result of ignoring fundamental ideas of basic human survival. An assertion is made on the fact that the most learned people fail to understand how the integration of ideas and disciplines in normal lives.
The value of integrating ideas could also be measured regarding the creating of generational wealth. This is achieved using an effective integration of academic ideas and disciplines in entrepreneurship efforts depicted among graduates. For instance, most college students believe that a good job is a guaranteed eventuality after completing the A-Level education. This forms a devastating source of disappointment as most countries struggle to integrate graduates into the economy. Consequently, disappointment among graduates results in severe cases of stress that might lead to depression and eventually suicidal cases.
The talk has been influential in determining which pathways or strategies separate effective and ineffective integration of ideas and disciplines. It is common to find some graduates who ineffectively integrate ideas and concepts into real-life scenarios. For instance, some graduates use naïve spiritual intervention in situations which require practical solutions an academic framework for execution. Such instances question the intellectual capability of graduates when presented with problems that require urgent intervention. Similarly, there is a situation where graduates tend to use complicated and complex academic frameworks to solve simple problems – that do not require modest solutions – and this complicates a solution-seeking process.
The talk has also been influential in setting an academic challenge while in college, aside from the integration of academic ideas and concepts in real life scenarios. Students are expected to ensure that class lectures transform one’s academic and personal life consistently and relevantly. For instance, time management should be guided by various academic frameworks learned in lectures. In this case, integration of ideas and concepts would be sourced from learning courses that capitalize on project management and scheduling of tasks and activities using the critical path framework. With such integration, any student would be in a position to attend all classes without failure since the essence of time management is crucial for learning development.
Integration of ideas and concepts would also aid in the mitigation of conflicts among students in a learning environment. It is common to find students arguing or conflicting on issues with deep cultural diversities ranging from religion to skin color. However, the talk has been impactful in understanding the essence of conflict resolution among students with deep cultural beliefs. For instance, integration of academic concepts and ideas of cultural diversity would aid a student in shaping comments and suggestions that do not religiously provoke other students. Such situations might lead to confrontations that end in murder cases. According to the talk, an effective integration would enable students to avoid disciplinary cases that might force an academic administration to expel a student due to violent cases such as fighting.
