Program Description

Critical thinking in the 21st century continues to trend as a most-wanted learning skill. We see this characteristic listed on job descriptions and resumes, and even in wanting to create critical thinkers in academia. Add in the gift of innovation and you can likely write your own career ticket. If many list critical thinking as a personal attribute on a resume, why do employers feel like they don’t have enough innovative critical thinkers? Why the disparity? Much of the fault might be found in how we teach critical thinking and whether employers really want critical thinkers or problem solvers. Yes, companies need problem solvers to thrive, but they do need creative thinkers. While we typically think of critical thinking as the objective analysis and evaluation of an issue to form a judgment, is that what employers are looking for? During this session, we’ll dive into what organizations really mean when saying they want innovative critical thinkers.

Learning Objectives

  • Explain the definitions and characteristics of critical thinking
  • Understand how to continually facilitate innovation
  • Identify and utilize root cause analysis methods
  • Discuss obstacles to critical thinking and how to best overcome them
