How to Teach and Assess Critical Thinking

This workshop will help participants explore innovative and practical ways to enhance their students' critical thinking skills.

Instructors in all disciplines agree that important educational outcomes include the development of critical thinking skills. However, instructors often struggle to understand the mental processes that underlie skill development and to design coursework that efficiently fosters improved student thinking.

Participants Will

  • Clarify their desired learning outcomes for critical thinking
  • Learn how and why an important student characteristic—cognitive development—affects student critical thinking performance
  • Recognize patterns of thinking in students’ written papers
  • Explore ways to scaffold improved critical thinking in their courses

Cost

$75 per person*
