Culminating projects help students integrate information, apply their skills, and practice long-term project planning. Rather than using conventional designs, implementing alternative structures can take these projects to the next level! Help your students foster critical thinking and save time grading at the end of the semester!
Break your large, final project into smaller sections to allow students to work along with class content and to provide opportunities for peer input.
Stay tuned for more content! In the meantime, check out the recorded workshop below to learn more about incorporating semester-long critical thinking activities.
WCTL Critical Thinking Workshop
Good Thinking: Semester-Long Projects to Build Critical Thinking
This workshop reviews creative approaches that support student interpretation, analysis, evaluation, inference, and explanation—without overwhelming the instructor with grading while offering feedback! It includes a variety of examples of projects from multiple disciplines, helping you promote critical thinking in your own courses. We hope you enjoy this recording!
