 Faculty Commission's Virtual Roundtable Discussion: Ethical Teaching: Critical Thinking - Thursday, October 8 at 2 pm

The Moral Questions to Consider: Are there negative ramifications of sending thousands of students into the workforce without having taught Critical Thinking Skills? If yes, is our current pedagogy and classroom set up most conducive to the development of critical thinking skills? Has the current secondary system reliance on standardized tests habituated students out of critical thinking such that when they arrive on a college campus they are expecting to be told "all they need to know" without having to work anything out themselves?
