studies consistently cite the absence of critical thinking in
graduates' workplace readiness and lifelong learning skill set. We know

in the why of critical thinking that we have forgotten about how to do
critical thinking. This session examines how to use video, music, text,
and exciting interactive activities to foster your students' critical
thinking skills across the curriculum for academic and personal success.
This workshop goes beyond why. It provides practical information you can
use immediately on how to teach critical thinking for academic success,
career readiness, and personal development with understandable,
approachable, and applicable classroom strategies. Participants will
