Interim Chair, Distance Learning and Faculty Development
College of Southern Maryland
Statement:  In his book Outliers: The Story of Success, Malcolm Gladwell included a chapter entitled “The 10,000-Hour Rule.” The chapter presents evidence that what superstars do is practice—a lot—specifically 10,000 hours by age 20. I believe that frequent, focused practice supported by clear, specific feedback is the key to learning. No matter what the subject area, I believe we can all grow and improve if we adopt mindsets and behaviors that are positive, achievable, and creative.
