This article explores the use of the AQAL model to support student self-understanding in courses aimed at developing social conscience at an international school in Hong Kong. In one such course, the Integral framework provided a useful conceptual map that assisted in bringing a wide array of course materials to curricular coherence, and led to an all-high school gathering to consider greater institutional balance. Through these curricular explorations, it is proposed that the AQAL model may be used as a pedagogical tool in social conscience courses to facilitate a holistic sense of meaning and life direction for high school students.
