The Role of the Library in Critical Thinking and Curriculum
What is the role of the library in critical thinking and curriculum? How can the library contribute to a common language around critical thinking and its inclusion in the University curriculum? In this interactive session, participants will look at examples of library resources, research assignments, and curriculum plans to generate ideas and questions about how the library can support critical thinking in the classroom. With an interdisciplinary, across the curriculum approach, and drawing on successful collaborations with campus partners, the library can offer a unique perspective on connecting critical thinking to other curricular goals and course content. Teaching faculty, librarians, and administrators will leave with ideas for strengthening partnerships on campus to support critical thinking instruction.
