If the thousands of existing university graduates have been as effective as expatriate agents, underdevelopment will not exist today, the symptoms will be gone.
The solution for underdevelopment is to get university graduates to perform as well as the expatriate agents who currently supply essential managerial leadership in the economy. This is a goal that university education has failed to to meet.
We have a curriculum that meets this goal. We call it Guided Resonance. The graduates of our 3-year curriculum will perform as well as any expatriate. This will happen immediately after graduation, not at some unknown future date.
Expatriates in underdeveloped countries already manage local employees to obtain world-class results. In most cases, it is usually a few expatriate supervisors for a large number of local staff. This is a good enough starting point for our solution in the real world. New graduates will then be armed with the ability to put the nation’s resources to work, at least as well as your average expatriate. In increasing numbers, our new graduates will disperse in society to finally and immediately begin a genuine development of their economies. From there, the natural process of cultural diffusion will take over the spread of resonance, as our new graduates will become effective role models to which others can more easily relate. (chap 10).
Instructors and Students
The existing universities in the underdeveloped countries already contain the qualified staff that will implement our new curriculum, under the guidance of Human Rethink. All that will be required is a short introductory training that will prepare participating instructors, lecturers, and professors for what they will need to do, along with periodic continuing training. Through a resident campus representative, Human Rethink will supervise implementation of the curriculum, its operation, and efficacy.
The current university entrance requirements will be maintained. However, students must have ongoing access to a computer (or tablet with full size keyboard) while on campus. Participating instructors also must have access to computers. Computers must be connected to the internet or, at a minimum, to the proposed Human Rethink portal.
Human Rethink Portal
The Human Rethink Portal is an internet enabled computer server with access only to the online resources needed by students and faculty to participate in our new curriculum. It is a low-cost alternative to direct internet connection for every computer on campus. Access to the portal will be available via WIFI, which does not require expensive internet bandwidth.
