Critical Inquiry across the Disciplines: Strategies for Student-Generated Problem Posing
Nardone, Carroll Ferguson; Lee, Renee Gravois
College Teaching, v59 n1 p13-22 2011
Problem posing is a higher-order, active-learning task that is important for students to develop. This article describes a series of interdisciplinary learning activities designed to help students strengthen their problem-posing skills, which requires that students become more responsible for their learning and that faculty move to a facilitator role. Developing students' problem-posing skills and allowing them to grapple with course content can lead to deeper levels of understanding and improved critical thinking. In turn, students are more likely to be able to move their newfound knowledge beyond the classroom. (Contains 3 notes, 1 table, and 1 figure.)
