College Students on Critical Thinking in the Classroom

“According to [Cengage’s] recent “Student Engagement Insights” survey of over three thousand college students, 99% of students believe critical thinking is an important skill for them to learn in the classroom. Additionally, 92% believe what they learn in class sharpens their critical thinking skills for the “real world.” Terrific! But how many instructors and institutions find room for teaching it in their curriculum?

Students: Is critical thinking and important skill?

In a similar survey, 83% of instructors reported teaching critical thinking in their classrooms. While the majority of instructors do touch on critical thinking, many instructors still do not cover these types of lessons, despite the high value students place on them.”
