Opening up something, sifting what’s inside, exploring the contents
A sense of anticipation, delight, and wonder (perhaps)
Turning a singular entity (a text) into multiple elements

Group Activity
In your small groups, share and discuss some of the verbal metaphors you use in your discipline.

Be prepared to share with the large group a metaphor from a colleague that helped you understand that colleague’s discipline.
Habits of Head
Habits of Heart
Habits of Hand
Making inferences
Considering alternate perspectives
Recognizing limits of one’s knowledge
(Calder, 2006)
Endeavors to express the human experience
Produces human artifacts of the process of reflection
Honors process as much as product
Values complexity, multiplicity, and subjectivity
Embraces ambiguity and uncertainty
(ISSOTL Arts & Humanities SIG, 2013)
You have 3 minutes to brainstorm at least 30 habits of head, heart, and hand in your discipline.

Write down your habits on Post-it notes using the provided Sharpies.
Next, sort your habits into three categories: head, heart, and hand.
You have 2 minutes to brainstorm 10 more habits in your smallest category.
In your small groups, pool your Post-it notes and cluster them in some meaningful way.
On your own, write down 5-7 habits (of any type) you see as critical for students to adopt to engage in the work of your discipline.

Think / Pair / Share: Create a story about a graduating senior in your major and how they developed the habits you've identified over their four years in college.
How can the courses you teach become important parts of your students' stories as young scholars?
