Cura Personalis: Is It Rocket Science?
Students are unique. Depending on the goals of education, the outcomes can be quite dramatic. When students enter into any learning environment, they are faced with growth issues that include “maturity, intelligence, affective and spiritual growth” (ICAJE, 2013, p. 10). Subsequently, students could find the educational environment alienating or irrelevant to their lives. Therefore, the goal of cura personalis is to find ways to interrelate knowledge to the students’ lives in ways that it becomes relevant. In this paper, I will discuss cura personalis and its function in creating educational relationships between educators and students.
