MEDIA REVIEWS
A timely book! One that not only discusses dispositions but directs the professional educator to reflect and develop sustainable attitudes for student and instructional success. I especially enjoyed the sections on dispositions as mediators and the in-depth description of reflective practices. -- Carol Walker, Dean of the School of Education and Social Services, Saint Leo University
This book is an excellent resource for higher education faculty to use in addressing the complex issues surrounding dispositions and dispositional behaviors. A specific strength of this book is the use of cases and vignettes to guide individual reflection or to use as a teaching tool to generate thought- provoking conversations. -- Marci Greene, Dean of the College of Education at Florida Gulf Coast University
