CTL Workshop: Overcoming Barriers to Critical Thinking
Wednesday, January 16, 2013 from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM (CST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Facilitator: Edmund Hansen. Critical thinking does not come naturally to students who often were used to being told what to do and how to do it. Consequently many students come with problematic conceptions about knowledge and ability and about the risks of making mistakes. This workshop identifies four different types of barriers to critical thinking and discusses with participants ways for overcoming those barriers.
