Teaching and Assessing for Critical Thinking
Our students’ abilities to successfully navigate the universe of information around us and to participate effectively in our democratic society hinges on their critical thinking skills. But how do we know critical thinking when we see it? How can we better promote it in our classrooms? In this workshop, you will hone a definition of critical thinking that meshes with the content of your course. Develop learning activities that allow students to cultivate their critical thinking skills and create a plan for assessing critical thinking in your classroom. A stipend is available for eligible participants. Registration is required.
