• Essentially, good, trained writers begin to
think and work in more organized ways
• 90% of college professors ranked “the ‘need to
write effectively’ as a skill they considered to
be of great importance” (Worth, 1990).

Inquiry
• How did you learn to think in college?
– Did you?
– # 1 presentation mode (80 %) lecture (Ambruster,
2000)
– Were you able to thoughtfully consider each class,
placing the knowledge and applying that to your
cognitive process?
• Teach Inquiry NOW.
EQ
You have one thinking minute and two working
minutes to address this question:
How are my views about professional
development shaped by my experiences? My
habits? My prejudices?
Inquiry
• Split your table into ½
• Group with longest hair:
– What would it look like if I asked for professional
development to address my weaknesses?
• Group with shortest hair:
– What would it look like if I asked for professional
development to address my strengths?
Remember:
• As you work through these activities and this
first week
– You make the training useful
– Ask for support if you need it (table, team,
mentor, coach)
– Fear is not an option
– Stay hydrated.
