This session will open with a discussion about critical thinking—how it is defined and who gets to define it—and will outline the challenges in such an endeavor. A second segment will then move into an applied example—how critical thinking was implemented into the curriculum of a first-year program and pedagogy planned for the teachers. Examples of actual classroom materials will be showcased. A third segment will explain and illustrate how assessment data was gathered and reviewed. The success of the endeavor will be demonstrated through statistical evidence as well as student course evaluations. A final segment will demonstrate how the critical thinking model was applied in across the curriculum so that students have transferrable skills - useful in all classes as well as in life-long learning.
