Excellence in Teaching: Fostering Critical Thinking

The Teaching Committee of the Carroll School of Management wanted to pilot the use of video in exploring themes and modeling best practices around excellence in teaching. The prototype they created presents the theme of critical thinking. It features four Carroll School faculty members and the distinct approaches they take to fostering this skill in their students, with suggestions for using case studies, interactive lecturing, debates and structured discussions in class and online. The video is intended to be of interest for all instructors, and may be used as the focal point for discussion in events for junior faculty members.
