More Info

Critical thinking is an essential skill for success in the research lab. Are you thinking critically? What are the elements of critical thinking, and can it be taught? Matthew Grayson (EECS), Joshua Leonard (ChBE), and Denise Drane (Searle Center) will lead a session on their recent project to enhance critical thinking skills in the classroom and beyond. Faculty, postdocs, and graduate students will have a chance to create a critical thinking task.

The seminar/workshop is organized by CIRTL at Northwestern and NCEER.
