Robert DiYanni, prolific author and NYU professor, held a series of workshops for faculty, parents and students on Thursday and Friday. His topics included critical and creative thinking (a subject he has written several books on) and ethics. He asked questions such as “What words would you use to describe higher-order thinking?”, “What kind of thinking do we expect from our students?” and “How can we foster the development of our students’ critical and creative thinking capacities?”.
If you missed any of Mr. DiYanni’s sessions, we have posted an audio recording of his parent workshop below. You can download some of Mr. DiYanni’s resources here (tip: they’ll come in handy for the parent lecture!)
