This talk by Mike Palmquist will explore the connections among writing, critical thinking and student learning, with a focus on strategies that emerge from the writing-across-the-curriculum (WAC) movement. In addition to exploring the connections between critical thinking and writing, this talk will also consider how other activities such as presentation assignments, research projects and design projects, might be used productively in courses to engage students more deeply in course content and approaches.
