Developing Critical Thinking in Distance Courses

Presenter: Bob Ehrhart, Oregon State University


Abstract: The growth of distance education programs offers new challenges and exciting opportunities. One of these challenges is encouraging students to think critically about issues when they are not physically located with either instructor or classmates. Techniques to overcome these challenges include papers requiring analysis, interactive discussions using electronic media, and directed field exercises.
