    ...the root of all that we now know in biology including biochemistry, physiology, molecular biology, genetics, biotechnology and genetic engineering, and on the applied side about food, pharmaceutical, cosmetic and a host of fermentation industries producing not just wine and beer but also alcohol as fuel and fermented foods such a yogurt and many others, plus sanitation, water purification and sewage disposal including environmental issues and their control, medical and paramedical professions, including treatment and prevention of infectious diseases plus the exploration of extraterrestrial space and the biology if any of other planets. The application and opportunities provided by this subject are endless. This is one session, ten week long course.

Professional Development Workshops:

Most if not all of the teachers currently teaching in our schools and colleges are the products of the fragmented mode of education. They thus teach in a compartmentalized fashion teaching subjects or disciplines but not in an integrative fashion leaving the integration and understanding part to the students who, due to their limited background, have hard time doing the required integration. Learning thus suffers plus the fragmented mode of teaching is also expensive and time consuming. The integrative form of teaching resolves this dilemma enabling a teacher to teach better and faster with retention and administrators to become conservative in the allocation of time, space and resources. Being an integrative center of learning, we are recommending that all teachers, not just the specialty teachers teaching certain subjects such as science need to take such courses and workshops. This is one session, ten week long course.

Collectively these courses and workshops are the seeds which set the stage for life long learning making a person versatile, creative and self reliant.

  • Green Microbiology™

    This workshop is a preamble to the Green Microbiology™ course which uses only safe organisms to teach all the essentials of Microbiology!

    Since microbes carry a connotation of disease and danger, people are rather apprehensive to the point of being fearful to deal with the microbes or work with them. In order to avert that fear, we have developed a complete course of Microbiology using only safe organisms such as those used in the fermentation industries e.g., in yogurt making etc. This course thus uses only probiotic organisms and other organisms belonging to bio-safety level one. This course thus, by using these safe organisms, is able to teach all the basic concepts and skills of Microbiology without any danger to the participant yet the students learn to take all the necessary precautions such as the use of aseptic technique and preventing contamination.
    Workshop Fee: $100
