Eads Hall, Room 217

This event is for WashU faculty only.

One of our most widely shared goals across the disciplines is to teach our students to think critically. But how do we define critical thinking and how do we teach it? This interactive workshop for Washington University faculty will provide an opportunity for participants to refine their understanding of what constitutes critical thinking as it relates to their respective disciplines, as well as to discuss effective approaches for teaching students to improve their critical-thinking skills. The structure of this workshop is designed to help participants:

  • Sharpen their definition of critical thinking
  • Apply a model of critical thinking to identify and explore aspects of teaching critical thinking that they would like to develop
  • Identify approaches to fostering critical thinking during class

Presenter: Beth A. Fisher, PhD, Director of Academic Services (The Teaching Center)

Registration is required and limited to 15 participants. Participants are welcome to bring a lunch. Beverages, snacks, and cookies will be provided.
