CTLL Submission deadline reminder.

Dear Critical Thinking SIG members,

I just wanted to remind you that the deadline for CTLL submissions (to be published in November) is at the end of July. So, you have a little over 1 month to finish up your manuscript and submit it our Chief Editor, Curtis Chu (see email address below).

If you are a current , or former, member of the CT SIG, we would like to know what you are doing with Critical Thinking in your classroom. Research on student impact on CT, data from CT infused methodology, and other areas areas related to CT are welcome. We are also looking to share well researched and referenced methodology for the classroom with our readership.

(Did you know: The CTLL Journal is not read by just the CT SIG members? There are well over 300 downloads of the latest journal from our website and our authors are being cited by other authors in journals around the world!)

If you know someone who is not a CT SIG member but think they have something of interest to our readership, please encourage them to submit! The journal submission is not limited to CT SIG members. Anyone can submit.


Have something to share?

You can find manuscript guidelines at:

We look forward to receiving your thoughts, ideas, and research.
