How Can I Help Students Develop Critical Thinking Skills?

Developing critical thinking skills is the real business of higher education – teaching students to analyze and dissect every idea, ruminate about it, and arrive at thoughtful, informed opinions. This fast, focused program will show you how to incorporate active learning components into every aspect of your courses, from lectures to labs, from writing assignments to tests.

Help for teaching students to develop critical thinking skills

A meaningful education is measured not by the facts a student accumulates, but by what he or she is able to do with those facts.

Developing critical thinking skills is the real business of higher education – teaching students to:

  • Analyze and dissect every idea
  • Ruminate about it
  • Arrive at thoughtful, informed opinions.

We present a wealth of tools and strategies to help you promote critical thinking in this Magna 20-Minute Mentor presented by Rob Jenkins, M.A., professor of English and “Two-Year Track” columnist for The Chronicle of Higher Education, and Debi Moon, J.D., recipient of a National Teaching Excellence Award and administration and faculty member at Georgia Perimeter College.

This fast, focused program will show you how to incorporate active learning components into every aspect of your courses, from lectures to labs, from writing assignments to tests.

During this program you’ll discover

  • Which activities promote active learning … and which don’t.
  • How to create assignments and exams that reinforce critical thinking.
  • How rubrics can help you make learning visible.
  • How to incorporate case studies, role play, brainstorming, journals, interviews and other activities into class time.
  • How to help students identify and consider the influence of context and writer bias.
