Humboldt International University is committed to serving lifelong learners through distance education, preparing them for common global knowledge. There are five basic principles we follow:
- Professional competence, values, and ethics that allow graduates to master an array of disciplinary knowledge and abilities to help them apply their knowledge in real-world settings and develop a lifelong learning to improve their professions.
- Critical thinking and problem-solving techniques to help graduates acquire the ability to identify and evaluate issues, develop critical-thinking skills, recommend solutions to implement changes, and then evaluate the results.
- Team learning which focuses on the development of students’ ability to lead teams through a combination of individual and group activity skills aimed at promoting intellectual and technical learning, as well as providing validation and exploring new ideas.
- Engage in a learning process aimed at respecting human diversity and behaving in a tolerant manner towards colleagues and those they serve in a way that can communicate ideas in an environment of intellectual openness.
- Information utilization in a wide variety of research capabilities through gathering, analyzing the credibility and accuracy of information gathered, regardless of source, while using that information to address issues or to take action.
Distance Education Environment
The Distance Education Environment is composed of the Learning Educational Module, the Learning Management System (Synchronous and Asynchronous Platforms) and the Administrative System. Students have access to the systems 365 days a year, 24 hours per day. To access the distance learning campus students and instructors require computers with internet access. Students will each get their own username and password to access the platform. The distance education environment is set up for maximum interaction between the students and their instructors.
