"The Analytical Process For Applied Education"

Northwestern Theological Seminary utilizes a unique process for learning, developed by our founder, Dr. Howard M. Sarkela, in early August of 1980. This process is more than a teaching system and better termed as a contemporary process for learning and applying knowledge. Dr. Sarkela has attending colleges and universities found that the old system of education was greatly lacking in effectiveness and efficiency. He found that the archaic, yet still in practice, system of memorizing lists and cramming for examinations resulted in considerable loss of knowledge because of the fact that much which is memorized, through cramming, goes into our short term memory and may be quickly forgotten. As a result of this discovery he decided that there must be a better way, whereby students can acquire knowledge and assimilate it while at the same time being better enabled to retrieve it for application in their lives and careers. 

The process that Dr. Sarkela developed, is called: "The analytical process for applied education." This simple yet thorough method of study involves the inductive method, of progressing from the GENERAL to the SPECIFIC while assimilating and applying the knowledge gained through research. 

The GENERAL process involves making a general outline and doing research to gather data, then  utilizing the gathered information  to formulate and develop a comprehensive research project. Writing this research paper, involves compilation, comprehension and application of the relevant data being researched. To do this, the student must continuously be asking, "What is the value of this information relative to the subject?" and then crystallizing it by asking, "how can I apply this, General and Specific, knowledge for the enhancement of my education, life and career?" as well as, "How can I apply this information in helping others?" Repetition of this process, improves the ability to perform quality research, as well as the ability to assimilate and apply knowledge gained from quality research. Using this methodology to fulfill a research assignment leads to better comprehension and retention of valuable information thus complimenting the learning process and further enabling the learner.

The SPECIFIC process evolves: First, during the research phase, through analysis to develop many specific questions, in detail, relative to the student's interest in particular subject matter, considering how it may be applied to learning, life and career. Second, doing further research to find specific answers that the student can assimilate and apply for the enhancement of their learning, life and career, as well as to their ministry of helping and educating others. This valuable learned information is then interwoven into the research project. Through this process of education, the student is able to remember more of the valuable information that he or she is exposed to. Understanding specific information well enough to remember and apply it, is the goal of this process of analytical research study. Obviously, there can be tremendous educational, life, career and ministry value achieved through such effective application of both General and Specific knowledge.

 If it is true, that intelligence quotient, or I.Q., relates not so much to acquired knowledge as it does to the ability to apply such knowledge, then it is logical that the "analytical process of applied education," should result in higher  I.Q. scores whenever this advanced, process of contemporary education has been continuously and conscientiously practiced.

As a student of Northwestern Theological Seminary, you will receive education based on this advanced educational process. Having a better ability to recall knowledge learned through this process of research, assimilation and personal application, as well as having a better ability of knowing how to find answers through research, will provide our students with more of an advantage in our modern, competitive society. 

Knowing the correct questions to ask and knowing how to find the correct answers as well as knowing how to correctly apply such answers for your learning, life and career, is a priceless gift, a gift we offer to all of our students at Northwestern Theological Seminary. 

Study to show thyself approved, a workman who needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15)
