CRCRTH 692 - Processes of Research and Engagement, Spring 2007
Processes of Research and Engagement
Professor Peter Taylor, Ph.D.
Critical and Creative Thinking
Course Structure: Two and half hour classes - once a week
In this course, students identify issues in educational or other professional settings on which to focus their critical and creative thinking skills. Each student works through the different stages of research and action - from defining a manageable project to communicating findings and plans for further work. Supervision is provided when the student's research centers on new teaching practices, workshops in the community, or volunteer. The classes run as workshops in which students are introduced to and then practice using tools for research, writing, communicating, and supporting the work of others.
