Intellectual Character 1/2 – Now what? How can I nurture virtuous intellectual character in my students and my school?

Phillip Dow June 6, 2016

Presented at:
SCL Conference 2016


The concept of intellectual character has strong biblical and classical roots, but until very recently has been largely ignored or missed by modern education. In this session, Phil Dow will define “intellectual character,” describe its potentially transformative impact on learning and life, and argue that the pursuit of virtuous intellectual character needs to be a fundamental aim of Christian education.
