The Critical Thinking Skills Educators Value

Season #1

Want to know what your colleagues mean when they talk about "critical thinking"?
Want to know how to stimulate dialogue about it at your institution?
Want to know why Steve is like Annie Wilkes?

Two recent studies shed new light on how educators conceptualize critical thinking and, more importantly, which particular aspects of critical thinking they value most.  But while the studies in one sense empower educators to discourse about critical thinking at their institutions, they also expose some challenges to critical thinking education.  Ultimately, Steve uses the articles to offer specific, easily applied approaches to teaching critical thinking.
