If there is one thing college faculty all agree on, it is the value of teaching students to think critically. That unanimity disappears, however, as soon as one probes a little deeper to ask how to recognize critical thinking—surely a pre-requisite for assessing it so that one can know if one’s students are in fact advancing toward this goal.
At the next UCITE session, we will try and identify the various components that constitute what we popularly understand as critical thinking so that we can get a better handle on how to identify those aspects that are particularly suitable for our specific courses and so can better teach them.
Join us for this discussion on Jan. 19 from noon to 1 p.m. in the Herrick Room on the ground floor of the Allen Memorial Library Building.
Pizza and sodas will be provided at this session; RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
