Dear Colleague,

I thought you would be interested in hearing a recent conversation on
developing critical thinking skills. In this podcast, Stephen D.
Brookfield joins fellow authors Rena Palloff, Keith Pratt and Jonathan
Finkelstein to discuss fostering critical thinking in the online

The conversation will interest anyone looking for ways to help online
learners improve their depth of understanding, their ability to
challenge or confirm assumptions, and their openness to thinking
critically. (And as a special bonus, music lovers will appreciate
hearing how being in a band can teach us to model critical thinking.)

This podcast is a pre-cursor to the second annual Jossey-Bass Online
Teaching and Learning Conference to be held completely online October
7-8, 2008, during which Brookfield will address this topic further as
part of his online keynote address. A special pre-conference workshop,
hosted by Fielding Graduate University, will be held on October 6, 2008.
