Kicking and Screaming: Activating Critical Thinking

Speaker: Heidi Helgren & Bruce Kemmer, Delta College:
Are your students struggling, refusing, or reluctant to use their critical thinking skills? Are you sick of hearing “what’s on the test?” or “Do I really need to know this?” Learn from Heidi and Bruce as they discuss engaging students utilizing case studies from their Cengage textbooks and current event examples in both face-to-face or online formats. Case studies can take the pressure off the instructor and force students to think about concepts differently. See how we work critical thinking skills into a variety of business topics including business law, human resources, management, and introduction to business.
