Professional Development - Critical Thinkers' Forum

Purpose

The QEC has established a Critical Thinkers' Forum for SPC faculty and student activities staff to allow a free exchange of best practices and supply an opportunity to seek answers to vexing questions on how to get students to think critically. The Forum is a discussion group in the Critical Thinking Community Group on the ANGEL Training server, which is accessible only to SPC employees. We welcome all of you to participate in taking your critical thinking activities to the next level in which students truly develop greater competence in thinking critically.
