Helping Student Leaders Develop Critical Thinking Skills

Presented by Rob Jenkins, associate professor of English, Georgia Perimeter College

Getting fired up after hearing a speech about critical thinking is one thing. Taking those ideas back to campus and actually implementing them is another. Clearly, students will need ongoing help and reinforcement as they seek to put these principles into practice. Designed for advisors and others who facilitate student leadership, this session will begin with an overview of critical thinking for student leaders. Then learn concrete, practical steps that you can follow in order to help students learn, internalize, and utilize those concepts in their daily roles on campus.
