Designing & Teaching a Course with a Critical Thinking Focus

Critical thinking is a skill that students in all disciplines must master. This seminar leads educators through the process of developing and teaching a discipline-based course that targets critical thinking skills and shows participants how to effectively encourage students to think for themselves.

Do your students know how to think critically?

Are you helping your students learn how to think critically?

Sure, we can assume our students are learning the lessons that we plan, but can we ever know for sure? Will our students leave our classrooms knowing how to think independently?

Unfortunately, critical thinking is, and continues to be, a deeply misunderstood cognitive skill set. Although all educators can agree on its importance, views remains split on what exactly critical thinking is, or how to effectively teach this skill to students.

To make matters more difficult, the critical thinking literature in higher education is fragmented, abstract and impractical, doing little to help clarify the concept of critical thinking or offer any concrete ideas on how to teach it.

Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a trusted model you could reference when developing and teaching critical thinking in the classroom?

Magna Publications can help! Designing & Teaching a Course with a Critical Thinking Focus, a Magna Online Seminar developed and presented by Dr. Linda B. Nilson, is your solution.

Simply put, this seminar defines, in plain English, what critical thinking is and provides educators with actionable tools they can use to effectively develop and teach courses aimed at building critical thinking skills.

Synthesizing the various perspectives on critical thinking, Dr. Nilson focuses on the three components of critical thinking education:

  1. Course design
  2. Assessment
  3. Teaching principles

Critical thinking is not an afterthought. Learn how to effectively incorporate critical thinking skills in your classroom today and put critical thinking first.
