  • Learning and innovation skills increasingly are being recognized as the skills that separate students who are prepared for increasingly complex life and work environments in the 21st century, and those who are not. A focus on creativity, critical thinking, communication and collaboration is essential to prepare students for the future.Creativity & InnovationThink CreativelyUse a wide range of idea creation techniques (such as brainstorming)Create new and worthwhile ideas (both incremental and radical concepts)Elaborate, refine, analyze and evaluate their own ideas in order to improve and maximize creative effortsWork Creatively with OthersDevelop, implement and communicate new ideas to others effectivelBe open and responsive to new and diverse perspectives; incorporate group input and feedback into the workDemonstrate originality and inventiveness in work and understand the real world limits to adopting new ideasView failure as an opportunity to learn; understand that creativity and innovation is a long-term, cyclical process of small successes and frequent mistakesImplement InnovationsAct on creative ideas to make a tangible and useful contribution to the field in which the innovation will occurBrowse Creativity & Innovation ResourcesCritical Thinking & Problem SolvingReason EffectivelyUse various types of reasoning (inductive, deductive, etc.) as appropriate to the situationUse Systems ThinkingAnalyze how parts of a whole interact with each other to produce overall outcomes in complex systemsMake Judgments and DecisionsEffectively analyze and evaluate evidence, arguments, claims and beliefsAnalyze and evaluate major alternative points of viewSynthesize and make connections between information and argumentsInterpret information and draw conclusions based on the best analysisReflect critically on learning experiences and processes Solve ProblemsSolve different kinds of non-familiar problems in both conventional and innovative waysIdentify and ask significant questions that clarify various points of view and lead to better solutionsBrowse Critical Thinking & Problem Solving ResourcesCommunication & CollaborationCommunicate ClearlyArticulate thoughts and ideas effectively using oral, written and nonverbal communication skills in a variety of forms and contextsListen effectively to decipher meaning, including knowledge, values, attitudes and intentionsUse communication for a range of purposes (e.g. to inform, instruct, motivate and persuade)Utilize multiple media and technologies, and know how to judge their effectiveness a priori as well as assess their impactCommunicate effectively in diverse environments (including multi-lingual)Collaborate with OthersDemonstrate ability to work effectively and respectfully with diverse teamsExercise flexibility and willingness to be helpful in making necessary compromises to accomplish a common goalAssume shared responsibility for collaborative work, and value the individual contributions made by each team member
  • Synthesizing Mind – Putting it all together in ways that makes sense to yourself and to others -Deciding what to ignore, what to focus on, and what is importantThe Creating Mind – Needs examples of creative ideas, actions and behaviors - Needs some synthesis, but not too much and Discipline - Go beyond the known good questions (new questions)The Disciplined Mind - Learning to think like experts (Science, History, Arts and mathematics.The Respectful Mind – How we relate to others, how we think about differences, and how we value diversity beyond mere tolerance.The Ethical Mind – Fulfilling responsibility in terms as citizen and job role and models of good work.
