Promoting Critical Thinking in your Classroom

This workshop is designed to help faculty promote and assess critical thinking in their courses. A primary objective of the workshop is to define and illustrate critical thinking as an instructional objective from the various perspectives of the disciplines represented by the faculty in attendance. In addition to reviewing a variety of techniques that are suitable to different contexts, participants will begin to develop activities that can both promote and assess the level of critical thinking in your students.


By the end of this session, you should be able to

  • Articulate what critical thinking means in your own discipline.
  • Develop learning objective(s) that demonstrate critical thinking.
  • Develop activities that can both promote and assess critical thinking.
