What:  Webinar and discussion
Thursday, March 7        1:00-2:00 p.m.
Where: McKillop 208

Research suggests that in academics educators are the ones failing in teaching students to think critically.  Methodology may have something to do with it even though we often want to blame students for their lack of college readiness.

This webcast, sponsored by Turnitin, will provide research and practices for engaging the students’ brain to actually improve their ability to think critically.

Presenters are Dr. Shannon Farris, psychology professor at Saint Leo University in Florida, and Renee Bangerter, English professor at Saddleback College in California.
