Tips for Improving Student Thinking and Learning

Here’s a list of some practical suggestions taken from a neat, “miniature guide for those who teach on how to improve student learning.” (reference below) The guide was prepared by Richard Paul and Linda Elder, both well-known experts on critical thinking.

This miniature guide is part of a “Thinker’s Guide” series that covers 12 topics, including active and cooperative learning, ethical reasoning, how to study and learn, and critical thinking. Some of these guides are written for students as well as faculty. For information about this guide series as well as other resources on critical thinking, visit this website: http://www.criticalthinking.org/.
