Hello Critical Thinkers!
I would like to bring your attention to two upcoming events that can help you to learn about critical thinking and how you can integrate it into your classrooms.
Cambridge University Press – Academic English Conference
Oct. 19th – 22nd, CUP is offering a free 4-day online conference (that will be available to watch on YouTube afterward) that has a ton of talks on various aspects of Academic English Instruction.
Of particular interest for CT SIG members, our Coordinator, James D. Dunn will be giving a talk on critical thinking in a reading and writing 2nd year course on Wednesday morning (Oct. 20th) at 12pm.
