Thinking Outside the Box: The 24 Hour College and the Modern Day Campus Ahupuaʻa

519 views

Published on

This presentation pitches two concepts that can help increase student enrollment, lower campus operating costs, generate additional revenue for the university and increase service learning, place-based learning, cultural based learning and experiential learning opportunities for students.

In the first pitch we explore open the university for 24 hours a day and offering classes and support services around the clock to increase student enrollment. We look at body clock research and view the education system in comparison to the 24 hour industries we prepare students for. We also look at traffic patterns to analyze the issue.

In the second concept we explore the idea of using unused land to grow Hawaiian food, organic food and Hawaiian herbal medicine. We explore how this can provide experiential, service, place-based and cultural-based learning opportunities for students while also helping the college to lower operating costs and providing revenue generating opportunities while allowing us to honor and perpetuate the host culture.

    37. 37. SUMMARY o’eau Olelo Nholomua ‘ i Pupukahi TRANSLATION ! Unite to move forward EXPLANATION By working together we make progress. This saying would be especially applicable to the Hawaiians on their canoes where each paddler would have to pull the paddles together on command in order to make the canoe move forward quickly.
    38. 38. SUMMARY E i ke i ke TRANSLATION ! i na wa'a; lauhoe ma ; i ka hoe, a, i ka hoe k i ka 'āina a; pae aku k Paddle together, bail, paddle; paddle, bail; paddle towards the land EXPLANATION If everybody works together the work will be done quickly. On inter-island trips, the two most important tools besides the sail were the paddles and the bailer. In heavy seas, the water would wash over the boat and so one or more natives would be constant bailing. Others would be paddling together on command to reach their destination in the shortest time.
