MFT and Interdisciplinary Seminar
John Bilorusky, PhD, WISR Faculty. This seminar will explore the uses of several seemingly different, but very much interrelated theories. 1) Theories of human development, especially Jane Loevinger’s theory of Ego Development and Kohlberg’s theory of Moral Development. 2) Vytgosky’s ideas about the role of social learning in human development, including his notion of the “Zone of Proximal Development.” 3) The Dreyfus Model of Expert Knowledge and Skill Development, which is also used by WISR faculty in guiding and assessing WISR student learning toward degree program outcomes. 4) Ideas developed at WISR about adult learning and transformative action-and-inquiry, referred to at WISR as “learning the WISR way” and “action-research.” The content of this seminar is relevant to the content of all WISR degree programs.
