Based on their exciting work in the field, Kallick and Zmuda map out a transformative model of personalization that puts students at the center and asks them to employ the set of dispositions for engagement and learning known as the Habits of Mind. They share the perspectives of educators engaged in this work; highlight the habits that empower students to pursue aspirations, investigate problems, design solutions, chase curiosities, and create performances; and provide tools and recommendations for adjusting classroom practices to facilitate learning that is self-directed, dynamic, sometimes messy, and always meaningful.
This 15-hour online book study is self-paced for users to complete at their convenience during the 4-week time period. Participants must purchase their own copy of Personalized Learning with Habits of Mind and plan to spend about two hours working in each of the seven modules. One-hour Ashland University graduate credit is available for $249.
