Student-Driven Critical Thinking Discussions
Kamil Hamaoui, Instructor from Westchester Community College is an Open SUNY Fellow in the Exemplar, Coach, and Mentor role in the COTE community.
His Effective Practice Fellow Chat: Student-Driven Critical Thinking Discussions in the Learning Effectiveness track is recommended for online faculty in the interested and experienced roles.
This group is the companion online discussion area for those interested in continuing this conversation, and in continuing to share and learn about supporting critical thinking in online discussion.
Abstract: Discussion forums are commonly used in online courses as a medium for students to develop critical thinking, communication, and information literacy skills. An effective way to meet these objectives is to use an explicit critical thinking framework, in which students are given specific instructions on how to structure their posts.
