Maximizing Critical Thinking in the Classroom

As someone well said, “In times of profound change, the learners inherit the earth….” And I’d add that those who know how to learn inherit the earth. Yet, my first year students seem singularly ill equipped to question, verify, and think creatively about information from lectures and reading. I've introduced some classroom/homework techniques that both motivate them to think and equip them with basic skills.  Students love the challenge and some even say, "You taught me how to think!" 

In this interactive seminar, we'll play with some of these techniques, share ideas, and offer some free, practical resources that teachers/professors can use.
