Open Session Limited to 50 Participants (First-Come, First-In). This session is held in a large ballroom with two sessions happening at the same time but at opposite ends of the room.

To prepare students for a world that is full of ill-defined dilemmas it is important to teach the tools and skills to think beyond the classroom. To help our students think critically it has been said we need to promote critical thinking, yet how is this done? What strategies are available for instructors to use? 

Promoting critical thinking is not just explaining to students how to ask better questions, or become better problem solvers. Critical thinking requires presenting material by looking at the merits and shortcomings of an issue to arrive at a reasoned judgment. In order for instructors to facilitate critical thinking they must also approach their teaching practice differently.

In this presentation a specific delivery approach which is drawn from the Critical Thinking Consortium C2T2.
