Faculty writing during critical thinking SIG meetingThis semester, 10 faculty from across the college of Arts and Sciences participated in a Special Interest Group (SIG) on Encouraging and Developing Students’ Critical Thinking Skills. From readings and discussions, to student personas, to development of specific student activities; participants have been highly engaged in creating significant critical thinking learning experiences for their students. Due to popular demand, we’ll offer this SIG again during Spring 17. Please apply and include your available times to meet.
