Student Development
Perry's scheme of intellectual and ethical development (1970)
Dualism: “There’s one right answer, and the teacher has it.”
Multiplicity: “There are lots of right answers and my answer is as good as yours.”
Relativism: “There are disciplinary ways of using evidence to make decisions about what answer is best.”
Commitment: “In a world of uncertainty, I have to make the best decisions possible and commit to them because it matters.”
Craig Nelson, On the Persistence of Unicorns: The Trade-off between Content and Critical Thinking Revisited. (1999)

"We come to see knowledge as constructed rather than discovered. We see decisions as contextual, as based inevitably on approximations, as involving trade-offs among conflicting values, and as requiring that we take stands and actively seek to make the world a better place." (p. 177)
from J. Klein, Creating Interdisciplinary Campus Cultures (2010)
