Flossing Your Teeth and Adopting A Puppy: In-Class Exercises For Developing Critical Thinking In A Digital Age
How can we best develop students’ critical thinking capabilities within a context of uncertainty and information overload? This session engages participants to explore this question, while offering two in-class exercises we have used in undergraduate Management courses to target specific aspects of students’ critical thinking skill sets: “Flossing your Teeth” and “Adopting a Puppy”. We will share teaching materials and guide participants through each exercise, then facilitate idea generation and sharing on how these exercises may be adapted and applied to a range of Management learning contexts.
