Habits of Mind

When I work with my students, or when I'm trying to be more disciplined or purposeful in my own thinking, I often return to some of the strategies I've listed, and I try to test the work being done against at least the standards I've listed. Neither of the lists is complete. Both of the lists have evolved over time, and my sense of which strategies or standards are most useful or relevant often shifts from year to year, class to class, task to task. I believe that is as it should be. But what I am trying to do, in my teaching life, in this blog, and, to the extent that it is possible—although this is always the hard part—in the conduct of my life, is to be thoughtful, and flexible, and competent, and attentive, and compassionate.

Small private online course

University of California -Berkeley Professor Armando Fox first coined the word in 2013 to refer to a localized instance of a MOOC course that was in use in a business-to-business context.[1] Use in Blended and Flipped Classroom Learning[edit] SPOCs support a current trend in education known as blended learning. Blended learning, sometimes called hybrid learning or flipped classroom learning, combines online resources and technology with the personal engagement between faculty and students that in-classroom teaching provides. Early research results point to improved learning and student outcomes using this blended model.[2] For example, in spring 2013, edX and MITx piloted two blended classroom implementations of 6.00x, Introduction to Computer Science and Programing at Bunker Hill and Mass Bay Community Colleges in the Boston area.
