Habits of Mind Community of Practice
Online Professional Development
The Habits of Mind Community of Practice will engage faculty in a facilitated, interactive online forum to build understanding and strategies for improving students’ habits of mind.
By joining our Community of Practice you’ll be introduced to selected readings, materials and ideas that support your practice as an instructor and/or counselor. As members of this community you’ll be collecting student voices (i.e., video, surveys, think-alouds, written reflections) to better understand habits of mind and piloting simple strategies/routines for improvement. Throughout this adventure we’ll be sharing what we discover and building upon each other’s expertise.
Instructors and Counselors can join the Habits of Mind community of practice by registering for one or more of the following 6-week online modules (you must register for each module separately):
- Module 1: Student Self-knowledge and Self-assessment. Choose from two start dates – Sept. 2, 2012 (Module 1A) or Sept. 30, 2012 (Module 1B)
