Teaching for Critical Thinking: A Faculty Book Group Spring 2012

Thursday, April 19 2012 @ 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM

Discussion 3: What can we do in our own classes to develop students' critical thinking skills? (Chapters to be determined by participants' interests)

In October, 2011, Dr. Stephen Brookfield gave a well-received Burack Distinguished Lecture and workshop on teaching and critical thinking. In order to continue that conversation, we are pleased to announce a book group series on Brookfield's recently released book Teaching for Critical Thinking: Tools and Techniques to Help Students Question Their Assumptions. Participants will be provided with a copy of the text, and will be expected to attend three discussion group meetings (breakfast provided).

Co-Sponsored by the Center for Teaching and Learning, the Writing in the Disciplines Program, and the Office of Community-University Partnerships and Service-Learning.

Participants must register for and attend the February 23 meeting to participate.
