• The addition of Exhibitions as a fourth Studio Structure for Learning (along with Demonstration-Lecture, Students-at-Work, and Critique).
• Explanation and examples of the dispositional elements of each Habit, including skill, alertness (noticing appropriate times to put skills to use), and inclination (the drive or motivation to employ skills).
