George E. O’Brien

 

George E. O’Brien is an Associate Professor of Science Education at Florida International University (FIU) in Miami, Florida. He works closely with pre-service and in-service teachers, and he has introduced habits of mind in his classes since 1989. George values hands-on, minds-on, inquiry-based teaching and learning approaches which open up many opportunities to engage educators in Costa and Kallick’s Four Levels of Educational Outcomes approach. George deeply has enjoyed collaborating in FIU’s College of Education Faculty Learning Community (FLC) since 2010. This group works with local K-12 schools, other universities, and other community partners in professional development, research, and related activities focusing on the habits of mind.
