Fostering Intellectual Development: Suggestions for Instructors as Teachers and Learners

Perry, Belenky et al., and Baxter Magolda have produced models describing phases of student intellectual development in higher education. In this session we will examine these models and indicate ways that instructors as teachers can recognize and provide opportunities for students to understand and engage various positions, disequilibria, and transition. We will also indicate ways that instructors can encounter these phases from their perspectives as learners in the area of teaching and learning.
