Steven Pearlman, director of Interdisciplinary Writing and Reasoning at the University of Saint Joseph in Connecticut, will come to the IUP campus and give a talk on how we teach thinking on March 26 at 4:30 p.m. in the HUB Monogahela Room.

Do you know what percentage of students graduate college proficient in critical thinking? What pedagogies correlate with critical thinking outcomes? What are key neuroscientific correlations between brain activity and learning? Why is writing so important to critical thinking? This research-driven presentation will offer practical ideas for building the critical thinking classroom.

Come and join Pearlman on March 26 at 4:30 p.m. to discuss how we teach thinking.
