On The Means and Ends of Teaching Critical Thinking (KC 112)


Rich Booher

Summary: Critical thinking is one of the core competencies that our college aims to teach.  What is critical thinking? Why do we aim to teach it?  Can it be taught?  If so, how?  I will discuss skeptical arguments that have been made about teaching critical thinking.  We will consider how one might respond to them.
