Learning and Teaching in the 21st Century: Seven Habits of Highly Effective Developmental Educators.
The National Association for Developmental Education (NADE) has developed a strategic plan for guiding its members into the next century. The plan takes into account political, institutional, economic, and instructional trends predicted to have an effect on the course of developmental education. Developmental educators also must plan for the current and future education environments, and they can choose their future actions with the help of the seven principles outlined by Steven Covey in his "Seven Habits of Highly Effective People." These principles are summarized as: (1) be proactive; (2) begin with the end in mind; (3) put first things first; (4) think win-win; (5) seek first to understand, and then to be understood; (6) synergize; and (7) sharpen the saw (continue to invest in yourself).
