This learning event is right for you if you are looking to support students to develop dispositions which enable schools and classrooms to improve student learning outcomes and develop school cultures that help students thrive.
More than 25 years ago, Art Costa and Bena Kallick defined the Habits of Mind as the dispositions that are skilfully and mindfully employed by characteristically successful people when confronted by problems, the solutions to which are not immediately apparent. Since then we’ve been learning about how to successfully implement them into schools and classrooms to improve student learning outcomes and develop school cultures that help students thrive. In this series of three webinars we’ll explore what we’ve learnt and give you the tools to succeed with Habits of Mind.

James first became interested in how to teach students to become better thinkers as a classroom teacher in the late ‘90s. Later, as a school leader, he spearheaded a national research project focused on infusing Art Costa and Bena Kallick’s Habits of Mind into schools and classrooms. He is a Certified Speaking Professional (CSP), presenting around Australia and overseas. As an author, he has published Succeeding with Habits of Mind and The Agile Learner, as well as numerous e-books. He has published with Art Costa and Bena Kallick Learning and Leading with Habits of Mind and Habits of Mind Across the Curriculum. His regular blogs are also read by thousands of educators around the world.
