Abstract

This regional conference brings people together from several institutions that have an interest in educating students who are strong critical and creative thinkers. My address presents a framework for teaching students how to think critically within their courses, but even more importantly, across disciplines and from college to graduate study and employment. I situate critical and creative thinking within the academic literature and workforce needs and describe a scalable model of teaching critical thinking across the disciplines, across the region.
