Online Scenarios in FCS College Courses: Enhancing Critical Thinking Skills
Martin, Lynda; Thompson, Stacy D.; Richards, Lynne
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v100 n2 p25-30 2008
Critical thinking is a vital skill for higher education students. The Virtual Exchange was created by the authors to provide instructors with a unique approach to helping students enhance their critical thinking skills. Pilot data were collected from three universities where instructors used Virtual Exchange scenarios in their courses in different ways. Results showed significant differences in students' scores on a critical thinking measure before and after exposure to the scenarios. Implications are discussed. (Contains 3 tables.)
