Teaching Critical Thinking: A Better Questions Method

Critical thinking is something all instructors value, but what does “critical thinking” really mean? How can we know when our students are thinking critically? We want our students to leave our classes not just with useful knowledge but also with habits of mind that allow them to succeed in new situations. But sometimes we lose sight of the fact that outside of the learning environment, solutions are reached by inquiry rather than appeal to the judgement of a classroom authority. In this three-part workshop, we will look at ways of transforming our classroom spaces into places where good questions are valued alongside correct answers.

This workshop is held in three sessions:

  • Series Session 1: Tuesday, March 17 from 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm
  • Series Session 2: Tuesday, March 24 from 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm
  • Series Session 3: Tuesday, March 31 from 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm

Registration for the first session will serve as registration for the subsequent session.
