CURRICULUM PHILOSOPHY

The thrust of DOXA Institute curriculum is found in two areas: TRUTH CONTENT and COMMUNICATION TOOLS. DI is out to strike a balance between content  focus to a context focus. Thus, TRUTH CONTENT from the Biblical worldview curriculum must go hand in hand with the COMMUNICATION TOOLS from the major areas of interest for disseminating these truths.

The philosophy of DOXA Institute is to provide                GODUCATION/ ELDUCATION for her students by Monistic Approach to knowledge acquisition thereby linking current scholarship with spirituality. She envisions a mind renewing and affective kind of education capable of overhauling the total man; spirit, soul and body. To effectively and efficiently do this, she has the following as guides:

  • Teaching of righteous curricular
  • Using the Bible as her core text while making reference to other materials.
  • Use of dialectic and discursive approaches of learning.
  • A teacher to CLASS CAPACITY of twelve – fifteen students {12-15} in a class room (Jesus method).

By so doing, DOXA succeeds in raising godly leaders who will positively affect the various spheres of human endeavour by making and implementing righteous polices on many fronts.

TEXTBOOKS

The core textbook of DOXA Institute is THE BIBLE, but additional books are used for further analysis and for inspirational value on a subject.
