The school’s own production
Production is a core activity of humankind. Throughout our
lives, we spend most of our time producing something in order to
earn a living. Production is the basis for a society to survive, and
if it is to thrive and develop, that society must produce a surplus.
At the foundation of any productive unit lies its production.
What kind of product shall it produce? Who will pay for it? What
is its purpose?
Following that, how shall the productive unit actually earn the money it needs to cover its
expenses? And what will it take to earn a surplus, which not only allows for feeding, clothing
and housing those who produce, but also allows for expansion and development?

Bachelor in `Pedagogy´
Bringing up and instructing children and youth to learn the skills and acquire the knowledge and wisdom they need to carry the future of humanity, is no small task. Teachers are needed who know their trade, who possess a modern perspective of today’s world, and who are willing to push the boundaries of tradition in search of ways and means of teaching and learning that will genuinely provide the new generations with the practical tools, the ethics and the human qualities they require to be able to take on life; as individuals, as progressive citizens of their country and as modern inhabitants and caretakers of the globe and its beings. The aim of the OWU Licentiate Degree in Pedagogy is to train such teachers.
