The Quest for Critical Thinking
Tuesday, September 23, 2014
1:00:00 PM CDT – 2:00:00 PM CDT
Few phrases are bandied about as much in higher education circles these days as “critical thinking” is. Professors say they teach it; politicians and people hiring graduates say they want to see it. But it is difficult to define with precision. Perhaps as a result, colleges mean different things when they use the phrase and when they evaluate their courses and programs to consider whether they are teaching critical thinking. Join Inside Higher Ed editors Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman for a lively discussion on these issues in a free webinar. Before attending the webinar, we invite you to download our free booklet, The Quest for Critical Thinking, a compilation of articles and opinion essays from Inside Higher Ed offering a range of ideas and perspectives, at www.insidehighered.com/booklets. The Quest for Critical Thinking booklet and webinar are made possible in part by the support of ETS. Your registration information will be shared with the company. Captioning for the deaf and hard of hearing is provided by CaptionAccess for all Inside Higher Ed webinars. Transcripts available upon request.
