Strategies for Fostering Intellectual Virtues in the Classroom [Event Flyer]
Presented by: Jason Baehr, PhD, Philosophy
Intellectual virtues are the character traits of a good thinker or learner. They include traits like curiosity, intellectual carefulness, intellectual thoroughness, open-mindedness, intellectual rigor, and intellectual humility. This session is a follow up to a fall session that introduced the concept of intellectual virtue and sought to distinguish intellectual virtues from related cognitive and moral strengths. In this session, I will offer a very brief overview of what intellectual virtues are, followed by a brief explanation of several strategies for fostering intellectual virtues in the classroom. The better part of the session will be spent discussing what it might look like to implement these strategies across different disciplines and in the courses we teach at LMU.
This talk complements the presentation "Teaching for Intellectual Virtues" in the fall.
Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or x85866.
