Designing Discussions to Cultivate Critical Thinking
Tuesday, October 5th, 2021 | 9:45 a.m. - 10:45 a.m.
Event Type: Webinar
Facilitator: Linda Stewart
Participants in this webinar will explore student development theories, questioning types and styles, and class discussion formats to enhance students’ critical thinking. Using case studies (Ambrose et al. 2010), we will discuss and identify ways in which we can plan and facilitate discussions to enhance critical thinking to promote a growth mindset. We will address challenging moments in classroom discussions and identify strategies to capitalize on those moments in productive and progressive ways.
