We take a deep dive into the concepts surrounding critical thinking. What is it and how do you know it when you see it? And just how do you get your students to do it? Jeff Rients, Senior Teaching and Learning Specialist at Temple University (and former CTLT graduate assistant) helps us explore critical thinking from a basic definition to advanced ways to assess it as a course-level goal. We also discuss how to incorporate it into your class without reinventing the proverbial wheel.
