A Strengths-Inspired Story: Utilizing StrengthsQuest in Your Course Foundation
At the foundation of a college student's success is self-awareness of personal talents and strengths. This interactive presentation highlights Clifton's Strengthsfinder assessment and the collegiate-focused book, StrengthsQuest. Inspired by the presenters’ course at Belmont University, participants learn practical ways to infuse a strengths lense into their courses and gain an understanding of how their students’ talents and strengths – and their own - impact the classroom culture. By helping students name, claim, and aim their strengths, teaching, and learning are enhanced. The “strengths story” that evolves becomes a powerful foundation for growth, development and academic success.
