The workshop has two primary objectives:

  •  it will explore how instructors can create the winning conditions for critical thinking in the classroom in an age when class sizes are growing and students are often distracted by laptops and mobile phones or are overextended due to family obligations and work commitments; and
  •  it will provide instructors with a variety of concrete strategies for encouraging critical thinking and overcoming the challenges associated with it.
