Integrating Creative and Critical Thinking into Your Course-Nelson

With Dr. Peter Arthur...

 

Every college in North America professes that the students who complete their program are creative and critical thinkers. 

Further, employers expect students to be competent thinkers. Luckily, these two skills can be taught and developed. This workshop will focus on practical ways to foster creative and critical thinking. Participants will develop a better understanding of these two constructs, strategies to foster their development, and ways to assess. Further, in a collegial, collaborative, environment participants will work together to plan how to implement meaningful strategies into their courses.

To register for this offering on December 18 from 9 to 3 p.m. at Nelson's Tenth Street Campus, P303 contact Holly Martin.
