Tusculum College is re-visioning its approach to educating students!
Beginning in 2010 there will be greater institutional emphasis and support behind practices that are
learner-centered and intended to develop students' ability to solve problems through the application of Reflective Judgment skills.
Reflective Judgment is recognizing the limits (uncertainty) of knowledge and yet being able to construct a resonable knowledge claim or solve a problem with
a defensible solution, all while holding this view tentatively and recognizing that with better tools or a different perspective that the "truth" of
the situation may change.
The process of developing this plan occurred over nearly 30 months and involved students, faculty and staff from across Tusculum's campus and sites.
The result is a plan to enhance student learning that is not only integrated with Tusculum's civic arts tradition, but also connected to research on effective
educational practice. It will serve to meet the needs of our students who will face many challenges as citizen-leaders.
