The State of Critical Thinking Today

The State of Critical Thinking Today | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Faculty Lack a Substantive Concept of Critical Thinking

Studies demonstrate that most college faculty lack a substantive concept of critical thinking. Consequently they do not (and cannot) use it as a central organizer in the design of instruction. It does not inform their conception of the student’s role as learner. It does not affect how they conceptualize their own role as instructors. They do not link it to the essential thinking that defines the content they teach. 

 

=============================================

I make a break in here to show the "about" of that web site with the following site text here:

 

Critical thinking is essential if we are to get to the root of our problems and develop reasonable solutions.

 

===> After all, the quality of everything we do is determined by the quality of our thinking. <===

 

Whereas society commonly promotes values laden with superficial, immediate "benefits," critical thinking cultivates substance and true intellectual discipline. It entails rigorous self-reflection and openmindedness — the keys to significant changes. Critical thinking requires the cultivation of core intellectual virtues such as intellectual humility, perseverance, integrity, and responsibility. Nothing of real value comes easily.

 

===> A rich intellectual environment — alive with curious and determined students — is possible only with critical thinking at the foundation of the educational process. <===

Overloaded with information, students need critical thinking skills - University World News

Overloaded with information, students need critical thinking skills - University World News | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Students today have unprecedented access to information. According to educator Karl Fisch, in one week of reading The New York Times, an individual will encounter more information than people in the 18th century would have had access to during the entire course of their lives.

 

It is not surprising that in this atmosphere, students appear to be growing increasingly dogmatic and are less able to engage in civil discourse with others with whom they disagree. Perhaps this is because they cannot accurately explain what people who oppose them actually believe. In truth, they often lack consistency in their own beliefs as well.
