Diane Goodman‘s insight:

A useful infographic that not only summarises the attributes of a critical thinker but more significantly, provides a 25 point list of actions teachers might invite students to do in learning activities – to stimulate and develop the ability to think critically and critically reflect on the ‘knowing and doing’ of learning (Schon 1983). A great poster for your office wall!

Diane Goodman‘s insight:

An adpatation of The "Seven Principles for Good Practice in Undergraduate Education," originally published in the AAHE Bulletin (Chickering & Gamson, 1987). The article provides useful  ‘I" statements to indicate how to apply the seven principles in any learning and teaching context, for example, "Beginning with the first class, I have students participate in activities that encourage them to to get to know each other". I recommend using these statements make a great checklist for self-evaluating ‘good practice’.

In the video she demonstrates how active learning, when combined with the theory of deep learning and peer instruction activities shape ‘deep active learning’. She proposes that the peer instructional model can further emphasise deep active learning.
