Thinkers! The critical thinking site on our new Web site is now functional and includes sections devoted to critical thinking lessons, the critical thinking conference ,and some of our critical thinking initiatives. I would also like to initiate a faculty critical thinking contest. Entrants in the contest would send in original lessons that have been designed to stimulate critical thinking. The most creative lesson wins! Winners would receive a fifty dollar gift card.
Send me your bright ideas. Winning lessons will be posted on our critical thinking site. --- Ken Homer
