We are grateful to have Prof. Ignatius Gous here to teach our students the value and methods to study correctly.
Prof Gous works in the interdisciplinary field of Mind, Brain, and Education Science, focusing on Effective Learning and Teaching. Originally trained as an Old Testament Scholar, his interests evolved from attempting to understand the minds of the authors of texts, to studying the cognitive science of religion and ritual. For the past 34 years, he is a member of faculty at the University of South Africa, where he became acutely aware that it is not enough to teach only the content of a discipline, but equally important to teach the ability to master content. He subsequently developed a unique programme on Effective Learning Strategies for students entitled the Golden Spiral method of Lifelong Learning.
