predisposition to respond

in particular ways.

  • A combination of having the inclination, capability and commitment to particular

behaviors that lead to productive outcomes in a range of learning situations.

why teach habits of mind
Why Teach Habits of Mind?

To develop self-directed, self-regulated learners.

To help learners be predisposed to behaving intelligently and productively when confronted with problems, dilemmas and uncertainties.

  • Rather than just provide information; we can teach learners how to use that information.
how where do students develop these skills
How & Where do Students Develop these Skills?
  • Through a cumulative, collective process that takes time and demands integration and synthesis from the learner.
  • Students don’t learn problem-solving or coherent writing from one course, or only specific courses.
  • The whole of the college experience, inside and outside the classroom, provides the structure, learning opportunities, and time for reflection.
