Justin K. Rademaekers will join our conversation by webcam to discuss his article "Getting Specific about Critical Thinking: Implications for Writing Across the Curriculum." His article, which presents findings from an interview-based study of faculty across the academic spectrum, invites us to consider whether there is such a thing as generic, transferable thinking skills--or if our discipline-oriented writing courses can best address "critical thinking" as a discipline-specific practice. Participants are asked to read the article in advance and bring questions and related experiences to share For link to article, see event description.

Please note that this Workshop is for instructors: Duke faculty, graduate students, and other teaching staff. Thank you.
