Physiology Education Workshop

How can you teach your students critical thinking?

3:30pm, Monday, 20th November 2017

Within the university sector and in the workplace, there is a strong consensus that critical thinking is an essential skill for students when they graduate. However it is a complex concept difficult to teach. This workshop will examine some tools that can help you to develop teaching activities that EXPLICITLY foster critical thinking for your students, enabling them to articulate this skill when they graduate. Please bring some examples of your learning activities (or learning outcomes) to start the transformative process during the session!

Facilitators: Laurence Orlando, Paul White and Julia Choate
