From my POD listserv:
Please accept our invitation to the 2nd Annual IUPUI Gateway to Graduation Critical Thinking Symposium at IUPUI, Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis on Monday and Tuesday, May 7th and 8th. We are thrilled that Gerald Nosich, Ph.D., nationally known Critical Thinking expert, will be returning to IUPUI. He is the author of Reasons and Arguments (Wadsworth, 1982). His second book, Learning to Think Things Through: A Guide to Critical Thinking Across the Curriculum, has recently been released in its fourth edition (Pearson, 2011). This book has been used extensively with high schools, community colleges and at colleges and universities globally.
Over 100 faculty spent two days with Dr. Nosich in May, 2011. His presentation was transformative to faculty who attended. Since his visit, two faculty communities of practice have formed, many faculty have created interdisciplinary assignments in their Themed Learning Communities and Gateway (first-year) classes. Because his impact was so powerful, we are establishing this Critical Thinking symposium as a yearly event with invitations going to professional development experts like yourselves. Faculty from colleges, universities, high schools, professional units and business will be in attendance. Please join us for this very important work.
