Creating Cognitive Dissonance in the Classroom

In Ben Johnson's blog at Edutopia, he writes (17 September 2009): "Cognitive dissonance is created by a dedicated teacher who challenges the students' beliefs about their own capacity to learn." In the Creative Community Building program at the University of Connecticut, we seek to create such experiences in the undergraduate classroom (face-to-face and online). Consider signing up for any of three Spring 2010 courses to be offered in Storrs and Hartford, Connecticut, as well as online:
  • Creativity + Social Change - Tuesdays in Hartford, Connecticut
  • Community Organizing and Social Movements - Mondays in Storrs, Connecticut
  • Introduction to the Co-Operative Movement: History, Philosophy and Prospects for the Future - Online
