ACTL

Greetings from the Center for Teaching & Learning.

I hope the term has begun well for you.

I intend to continue the survey of cognitive development theories that I've started during winter term. In previous ACTL newsletters I've summarized

This week I point you to what Pascarella and Terenzini call "perhaps the best known and most extensively studied" model of cognitive growth: King and Kitchener's Reflective Judgment Model. The model consists of seven stages grouped into three levels of reasoning:

Their 1994 work is well summarized at the site linked above and still worth exploring today. If you would like other resources I would be happy to provide them.

As always, if these resources prove useful in your classroom or course design, I'd like to know! Until then, have a good week two.
