Thinking Critically about the Teaching of Critical Thinking
Are we really successful at teaching critical thinking? How do we move from talking about critical thinking to doing it in the classroom? This workshop serves as an introduction to the challenges of inducing students to think more rigorously, systematically, and reflectively both within and across disciplines. Participants will step into the role of critical thinking learners, in order to experience and reflect upon the precise structures and formats of university teaching that induce students to think. There are two Nanaimo Campus offerings and one at Cowichan Campus.
