What will human learning look like in 2030? According to Dr. Randy Bass, who presented the keynote at the Provost’s Teaching and Learning Symposium in March, the future of human learning is dispositional learning. That is, it needs to be oriented toward helping students cultivate habits of mind and attitudes toward life and learning such as conscientiousness, resilience, self regulation, and reflection. As Dr. Bass noted, as machines become better at being machines, how do humans become better at being human? How can we create quality inclusive and integrative learning experiences at UMBC? Join the FDC to discuss the recommendations from Dr. Bass’ keynote. A reading on dispositional learning will be provided closer to the date of the program. Attending Dr. Bass’ keynote is not required for this program--anyone with an interest in dispositional learning is welcome. Lunch is provided.
