The link here is encouraging if business leaders are all thinking that liberal arts students come out with better critical thinking skills that are needed. Also, our whole department has been discussing things like problem based learning as a way to do more of this sort of work in the classroom. I hope my classes make you think critically, but am I doing enough? The nuts and bolts, as they put it, are also necessary though, so how do we balance this?
Thanks to Andrew Gowasack for the article.
