Critical Thinking

Critical Thinking has been organized around Halpern's (2003) framework for teaching critical thinking skills across disciplines. According to this framework, well-rounded critical thinking instruction helps students acquire:

- a critical thinking attitude or habit of intellectual deliberation;
- individual intellectual skills like analysis and inference;
- the ability to use these skills in new contexts, and
- the ability to reflect upon and evaluate one's own thinking (metacognition).

An Inquiry-Based "Creative Problem Solving" Course

Summary: Let students choose a problem to solve or case study to explore over the course of the semester. Incorporate benchmarks throughout the course, so students make progress on their work which they can show you. Include an oral presentation at the end, with 20 images each being shown for 20 seconds (no language--they must be images).
