[vc_row][vc_column][vc_tta_tabs][vc_tta_section title=”Course Information” tab_id=”1584042035018-c01b0dfb-e1a2″][vc_column_text]If ever there were a time in history for critical thinking, this is it.

What’s fact? What’s false? What do I know? How can I separate the wheat from the chaff and process the world through a lens of reason?

We’re all asking those questions—but our students, especially, are trying to come to terms with them.

The Magna Online Course Infusing Critical Thinking into Your Courses gives teachers the tools to light a path for their students. Led by Linda B.
