Post-Election Changes To Philosophy Curriculum By Subject: Critical Reasoning / Informal Logic


Continuing in our series of posts about changes to teaching materials and lessons for particular philosophical fields in light of the 2016 U.S. election (see previous installments on epistemology and philosophy of language), today’s post will be on courses variously described as “critical reasoning,” “critical thinking,” and “informal logic.”

Especially welcome here are ideas for innovative and interactive lessons, as well as lessons and assignments that involve the application of critical reasoning skills to current events. Also, it would interesting to hear how some philosophy professors incorporate into their courses material from neighboring fields that’s relevant to developing critical thinking skills.
