Critical Thinking Dispositions as an Outcome of Undergraduate Education
Lampert, Nancy
Journal of General Education, v56 n1 p17-33 2007
This article discusses variance in critical thinking between arts and nonarts undergraduates. Research indicates that inquiry based curricula positively influence critical thinking and that learning in the arts is largely inquiry based. These findings and the study results indicate that learning in the arts positively influences undergraduates' disposition to think critically. (Contains 5 tables, 5 figures and 2 notes.)
