Vacek, Edward – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2017
Many undergraduates are culturally shaped to avoid making ethical judgments. They spontaneously adopt relativist and skeptical strategies such as "It all depends," or "Whose morality?" or "Who's to say?" as ways of fending off the challenge of making moral decisions.

Nelson, Robert; Dawson, Phillip – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2014
Assessment in education is a recent phenomenon.

Mitchell, Sebastian – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2006
Plato's depiction of Socrates' interrogations in his early dialogues provides an enduring example of the importance of asking questions as an educative method.

Leigh, Fiona – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2007
In this paper I offer a reading of one of Plato's later works, the "Sophist", that reveals it to be informed by principles comparable on the face of it with those that have emerged recently in the field of critical thinking. As a development of the famous Socratic method of his teacher, I argue, Plato deployed his own pedagogical method, a…

Kraiter, Sara C. – Online Submission, 2017
Student-led discussion modules are the bread and butter of the language arts classroom; however, teachers are currently limited to very few techniques to choose from, such as large class Socratic Seminars and fish bowls, or small group literature circles. In order to determine which of these discussions are more successful for students, each…
