Workshop Description:
We all strive for critical thinking in STEM, but what exactly does it mean and how can we measure it in the classroom? This workshop will discuss different approaches to and assessment methods for critical thinking, as well as the importance of critical thinking beyond academia. Each participant will leave the workshop with specific and relevant strategies for promoting critical thinking in his or her classroom.
