This summer, the Center for Instructional and Professional Development (CIPD) at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and its partners will facilitate three informal book discussions for this well received book that explores practical strategies, individual experiences, and current research on incorporating writing assignments that promote higher-level thinking.
Engaging Ideas: The Professor's Guide to Integrating Writing, Critical Thinking, and Active Learning in the Classroom, John C. Bean (Jossey-Bass, 2011).
Learn to design interest-provoking writing and critical thinking activities and incorporate them into your courses in a way that encourages inquiry, exploration, discussion and debate. This edition features new material dealing with genre and discourse community theory, quantitative/scientific literacy, blended and online learning and other current issues.
