I was tasked to visually represent the six Learner Dispositions for the Clemson University College of Health, Education, and Human Development. These six qualities or values are not written in any text book. They are learned through exercise and experience, and are instilled in all students who graduate with a degree from the College of HEHD.
HEHD will prepare professionals who, in addition to content knowledge and skills, hold these six dispositions:
- Possess skills necessary to work collaboratively with individuals, families, and community groups from diverse backgrounds;
- Possess skills necessary to lead effectively and creatively in complex and changing environments and to become agents of change;
- Demonstrate flexibility, resilience, and adaptability, caring, ethical decision-making and ethical conduct;
- Possess knowledge of organizational behavior and how governance and systems work;
- Engage in professional development for continual growth and life-long learning; and
- Attain a global perspective and level of knowledge and skill necessary to succeed in a complex global economy.
The Believe It video is my visual representation of these six dispositions.
