CETL Seminar - The Malleability and Value of Intellectual Styles: Implications for Higher Education

Intellectual styles are people's preferred ways of using their abilities. The principal objective of this talk is to demonstrate that in an increasingly globalizing era when student populations are more diverse than ever before, intellectual styles play an even more critical role in higher education. To achieve this objective, the talk showcases chief research evidence suggesting that students' and academics' styles, particularly styles that are creativity-generating and that require higher levels of cognitive complexity (known as Type I intellectual styles), matter significantly in teaching and learning as well as in student and faculty development. It presents empirical evidence revealing that styles can be modified through both socialization and deliberate training. Finally, implications of research findings are proposed respectively for students, academics, student development educators, and for university senior managers.
