Critical Thinking and Online Supplemental Instruction: A Case Study
Shaw, Cassandra S.; Holmes, Karen E.
Learning Assistance Review, v19 n1 p99-119 Spr 2014
A wealth of research is available regarding supplemental instruction; however, a dearth exists regarding online supplemental instruction and critical thinking. This case study explored what was assumed to be known of critical thinking and investigated the extent to which critical thought was promoted within a university's online supplemental instruction program. Survey and persistence data indicated the university's online SI program was successfully facilitating critical thinking. However, after conducting online session observations, based upon the Paulian critical thinking theory and the adoption of Bloom's taxonomy as a critical thinking model, the case investigation revealed the initial assumption was flawed.
