Overcoming Resistance to New Ideas
Powell, William; Kusuma-Powell, Ochan
Phi Delta Kappan, v96 n8 p66-69 May 2015
There are two types of challenges that adults face in their professional learning: technical and adaptive. Technical challenges simply require informational learning while adaptive challenges require transformational learning, which requires us to rethink our deeply held values, beliefs, assumptions, and even our professional identity. Adaptive challenges are complex and addressing them requires patience and time.
