Tuesday Talks: "New Thinking about Critical Thinking"
G3, Irving Schneider and Family Building
12:30 - 1:45 pm
Ted Johnson, assistant professor, presents. Critical thinking is not an end result - it is a process. One scholar defined it as "...thinking about thinking while you are thinking." On a more practical level, this talk will explore some deeper questions about critical thinking: What does it look like? How does it appear in our conversations and teaching? How do we inspire it in others? How do we recognize it in written work? Is there an overall process for designing, engaging and furthering critical thinking in our efforts to advance knowledge through social justice? Come and find out.
