Webinar:  Integrating Critical Thinking into your Teaching - Part 2

Wednesday October 28, 2020 | 4:30PM to 5:30PM
Facilitator: Mr. Robert Parson

NOTE - These are highly interactive workshops where your participation is integral to the benefits you will derive from them. It is highly recommended that you attend both parts. If not, please try to view the recording of Part 1 before attending part 2 (contact Christine Cool at to receive recording).

Learning objectives of the talks and of the overall program: 

“Everyone thinks critical thinking is a good idea, but putting it into practice? Now there’s a challenge.”
Dr. Preston Smith, Senior Associate Dean, Dalhousie University
“Current medical school training represses CT. It’s all about remembering, very little about thinking.”
Teaching Critical Thinking Across the Continuum, CCME, Quebec City, 2013

Few students are given a clear definition of critical thinking (CT) and are at a loss when asked to perform CT. They lack a model to empower them.  In this highly interactive workshop, we will look at definitions and attributes of critical thinking. We will examine a teaching model for critical thinking so that you can adapt if for use in your classroom, for your students.  You will design and develop a learning activity that integrates critical thinking into your class.

By the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  • Identify needed abilities or dispositions for critical thinking 
  • Describe the process of critical thinking, as it applies to your discipline 
  • Create and integrate a critical thinking activities into a learning activity for your class
  • Can you give me a breakdown of part 1 and 2 for Critical Thinking?

This session has been pre-approved for the Teaching Skills Attainment Award.
