We are pleased to publish this guest post from Deborah Jones. 

There is so much to learn in life that it is virtually impossible to ever finish your education entirely. While you can become a professional in one area, there are always new advancements being made in it, no matter what field you have studied in the past. Along with these new advancements are also the virtually unlimited supply of subjects that you can still learn about.

Having a college degree or a high school education is never the end of a true education. In order to stay competitive in the job market and to stay in touch with the world as it continually evolves, you need to continue to develop your skills. There are amazing education opportunities available that will help you take the next step forward in either your career or simply your containment of knowledge as an individual.

The benefits of continuing your education

Here are just a few of the many benefits that you can expect when you decide to continue on with your education, no matter what your skill set may be right now.

Put your career in fast drive

No matter how many hours you put in at the office, you’re still waiting in line for your next promotion. While other people are advancing rapidly, you are the one that is always passed over. Sometimes all that’s necessary to get noticed by the higher-ups in a company is a continuing education. Pursue another degree or take some extra classes. This shows that you are committed to your job and the field that you are working in. You never know – the next promotion may arrive in your lap before you have even completed your classes or have attained your next degree.

Raise your income

In some fields, your income will automatically rise as you pursue your education. Find out if the company that you’re working for has an education policy in place that rewards workers for taking extra courses. If not, you can still take advantage of a higher income by either being promoted within the company you’re working for now or looking for another job that pays more due to your advanced credentials.

Personal satisfaction

People that get educated and stay educated are able to take on more in life and can pursue their interests with a higher level of knowledge. There’s nothing better to help you get this personal satisfaction in life than to take charge of it by furthering your potential.

The whole world is open to you – you just need to be willing to grab it by the horns. Whether it is for personal satisfaction, to raise your income or to get the next promotion available, you’ll never lose when you’re committed to the endless pursuit of knowledge. You may just never know how high you can go unless you are willing to learn everything you can and then apply it to your life so that every day is a brand-new day that you can look forward to.

    The statement is easily said than practiced. It involves three entities, viz. the teacher, the taught, and education. Of which the first two are tangible, and the third one is an abstraction in meta state. The driving force of this abstraction from teacher to student is based on several ,’noise’ factors such as the academic ambiance existing in effective transferring from one tangible entity to the other, the ‘power’ of the teacher, and the ‘receptive mood’ of the taught. Hence we can say, that real FACULTY model comes to play in such a scenario, encompassing the elements pf : Facilitation – Adaptation – Culture – Understanding – Learning – Time element – Yeoman services (by the teacher). Each of these components by themselves can be amplified to one’s imagination.

Why Your Opinion Matters: 

Our upcoming book:The Caring Professor: A Guide to Effective, Rewarding, and Rigorous Teaching, was written with feedback from many educators and students, which was our plan all along. We began by outlining our thoughts on a series of topics, then we recorded them to share with the world. From the feedback we received, we were informed about the needs of the student caring community. We need your feedback so we may continue to fulfill our mission statement and help students, the world over.

Thank you!
