CTE: Theory to Practice: Teaching Critical Thinking

Center for Teaching Excellence, Thomas Cooper Library, Room 511
Sep 20, 2011 11:00 AM

In a global information environment, is answer-finding still the best approach for students to learn? The ability to think critically, applying strategies across situations, is more important than ever before. Teaching critical thinking requires students to explore topics that may not be clearly defined. Such activities require continual synthesis (inductive) and analysis (deductive) practice using many variables. Students ask questions to find answers. Successful instruction in this context requires association between hierarchal learning theory and instructional practice. Come join the discussion relating theory to practice in teaching critical thinking. 

Participants are invited to bring a bag lunch or pick up a sandwich from the coffee shop on the main level of the library. Drinks and chips will be provided.
