Clemson Thinks2 Implementation

Thinks2 LogoClemson Thinks2 Implementation: One of the most important benefits that a university education affords students is the ability to think critically. While most teachers claim to teach critical thinking, and while many do, few can articulate precisely how it happens. Clemson Thinks2, Clemson University’s Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), is an ambitious experiment in critical thinking that aspires to transform student learning and faculty teaching across the curriculum and in the disciplines. The foundation of this effort is a series of critical thinking (CT2) Seminars, a cohort of CT2 Faculty Scholars, a faculty development program (the Clemson Thinks2 Faculty Institute), a rigorous assessment plan, and a scholarly research program. Now in our sixth year, 175 faculty members have completed the Clemson Thinks2 Faculty Institute. We offered 132 CT2 classes in 36 disciplines in the 2017-18 academic year ranging from sophomore to graduate level courses.
