The FWF proposed Student Learning Outcomes:

Why joining the Wisdom Skilled program is Important at the university?
The FWF seeks to educate and graduate transformative leaders, leaders who can “connect learning and scholarship to leadership and service.” Grounded in solid moral tradition and a depth of knowledge, transformational leaders work with persons, groups, and organizations to identify important human problems that call for change and to bring about solutions to these problems that enable greater human potential. Transformational leaders operate in a variety of situations: the political arena, commercial enterprises, educational settings, civic organizations, etc. Wherever their engagement, transformational leaders utilize problem-oriented practical wisdom to create a positive impact and in the advancement of the common good.
Theme of Program
In addressing real human problems, there is a set of habits or virtues that combine:
- Excelling in Integrated: excellence in practical reasoning, i.e., framing the problems, creating solutions, implementing solutions, and reflecting on the changes;
- Educating for Practical Wisdom: advanced knowledge and skills, both theoretical and practical, searching for truth grounded in both faith and reason;
- Partnering for the Common Good: a commitment to a moral tradition, i.e., a concept of the good and the practices needed to realize the good; and
- Building Community Across Diversity: the skills of constructive conversation, i.e., developing a consensus on problems and solutions, so that in implementing solutions to these problems there is a greater realization of peace, justice, and the common good.
- Increase fund of knowledge
- Build confidence as a learner
- Deepen skills
- No change in the form of mind
- Transformation of a form of mind – habits of mind and mind-sets
- How we know the world
- Who we are
The Learning Continuum
Educating for Practical Wisdom in Campus Life
At FWF, we strive to create, sustain, and develop a community of learning that cultivates practical wisdom in our students, faculty, staff, and administrators. Below describes some of the opportunities that students have for growing in practical wisdom.
Forms of Mind, Learning, and the Developmental Journey: Growing in practical wisdom is a developmental journey described by integrating elements from two interrelated perspectives.
The first perspective: the transformations of “how a student knows” or “the student’s habits of inquiry and reflection,” what they call reflective judgment that is used in creating solutions to ill-formed problems.
The second perspective: the development and transformation of young adults in three areas: cognitive (How do I know?), the intrapersonal (Who Am I?), and interpersonal/societal (How do I form relationships near and far?).
Learning Objectives for Practical Wisdom (Six key elements)
Framing the Problem: Sensing the multiple components of the problem, organizing information to understand the structure of the problem, and involving key stakeholders.
Solving the Problem: Imagining a shared desired future, construction options to realize the desired future, and deliberating to choose an option.
Implementing the Solution: Rationalizing resources to implement the solution and adapt to the unexpected.
Reflecting on Change and Process: Learning through evaluation of change and the process used.
Engaging in Constructive Teamwork: Working collaboratively in implementing an inquiry that requires executing the phases of practical wisdom.
Growing in the Fund of Theoretical and Practical Knowledge: Having a knowledge base to address real human problems.
Committing to a Moral Tradition: Standing within a moral tradition (a concept of human flourishing that includes the dignity of a human person and the common good).
