Overlaying Critical Thinking to Information Systems and System Engineering Courses
This paper reports on the efforts to overlay critical thinking to the courses in computer science and computer information systems in college courses taught by the author during Summer Session II 1999, Fall Semester 1999, January Interim 2000, and into the Spring Semester 2000, Summer Session II 2000. Activities for doing this are discussed. These include integrating critical thinking with product-based learning (PBL), team-based learning (TBL), and student management teams (SMT). These ideas of teaching and learning are discussed with the objective of communicating with others, enabling debate, encouraging alternative ways, motivating others to do more.
