Description

Do you ever feel like you are lost in space in your virtual classroom as you look for evidence of intelligent life? Workshop participants examine their own practices and learn what they can do to encourage critical-thinking skills. After watching videos of and participating in hands-on examples of critical-thinking exercises, workshop participants create their own exercises to ensure higher-level critical-thinking in their online students.

 

In an era in which all faculty members should all be prepared to teach in a virtual environment, we need tools that help students develop the critical-thinking skills necessary to be successful in any classroom or work environment.

 

The purpose of this three-part workshop is to expose faculty members to best practices designed to increase students’ critical-thinking skills.

 

Module 1:

 

  • Clarify the meaning of critical thinking in higher education and employment environments, including the most recent research about employers’ desire for graduates who possess critical-thinking skills.
  • Review and apply the “Valuable Intellectual Traits” identified by the Foundation for Critical Thinking.
  • Learn how to help students create video presentations that demonstrate higher-level thinking.

 

Module 2:

 

  • Examine Asynchronous and Synchronous Discussion Question Requirements, Video

 

Summaries, Online Interview Assignments, and Annotation Stations.

 

  • Help students develop digital literacy, with an emphasis on research.
  • Learn how to facilitate small group and one-on-one virtual conversations related to more complex course learning outcomes.
  • Develop rubrics to assess higher-level thought.
