Howard Gardner on “Beyond Wit and Grit”
As part of the Bold Ideas & Critical Conversations event held during the Harvard Graduate School of Education campaign launch on September 19, 2014, eight faculty members were each given eight minutes to discuss research-based ideas that they think will have an impact on the field.
Howard Gardner chose to talk on the topic of “Beyond Wit and Grit,” synthesizing his life’s work from Multiple Intelligences to the Good Project and coming to the conclusion that wits (intellectual capacities) and grit (work ethic and perseverance), directed towards “good” aims, will have a positive impact on society.
