Hands-on activity key to promoting critical thinking: lecture

Colleges and businesses are calling for 21st century graduates to be problem solvers and critical thinkers, says Daniel Fasko.

A professor of education psychology at Bowling Green State University, he will deliver a free public lecture entitled “Teaching teachers to teach for critical thinking,” Thursday, December 5, at 3 p.m. in room 209, Essex Hall.

“It is imperative to develop critical thinking skills and dispositions in our students by using evidence-based instruction in critical thinking,” he says. “Many of the techniques used require hands-on activities in the classroom that can be applied to real-world situations so that students can succeed in our global society.”

This event is sponsored by the Centre for Research in Reasoning, Argumentation and Rhetoric.
