Teaching Critical Thought: 12.00-14.00 Monday 9th July 2012

Enthusiasm in the idea of transdisciplinarity should embrace teaching. There has been great interest in staff across the university in developing our engagement with students in critical thought. Previous discussions in the TDC and across campus have focused on what critical thought is and how we teach it. It cuts across disciplines, levels and agendas of learning, research, employability.

Reflecting on the process and on the future, we invite all those interested to share ideas on teaching critical and creative thought to think about how teaching critical thought can be promoted sustainably. What drivers are needed? How do we move forward? Will any work filter down to actual student learning in their contexts? Our experience may address some issues in part. But there are certainly more questions than answers.

If this sparks a thought, then please feel free to join us. All colleagues are welcome.

Sam Bamkin, Rob Canton, Mark Lemon.
