Critical thinking is considered a foundational component of higher education, and yet there is debate among educators regarding the extent to which higher education really produces critical thinkers. As instructors, we often design assignments that require students to perform critical thinking, but we often do not teach critical thinking in an intentional way. This workshop will introduce an interdisciplinary framework for teaching critical thinking intentionally and explicitly. This workshop will also include time for collaboratively developing methods and activities for teaching critical thinking that are applicable to your own courses.
