EDU 639 - Identifying Obstacles to Rational Thought to Enhance Advocacy for Self and Others


3 Hour(s)

This interdisciplinary course explores thinking and reasoning to expand knowledge about learning environments (e.g., organizations, agencies or institutions) to advance advocacy for self and others. The course is designed for adult, K-16 educators and others who would like to examine societal socioeconomic contextual factors that may impact thinking and reasoning as it relates to schools, society, global issues or everyday life, seeking potential institutional and societal frameworks for change. In addition to exploring legitimate advocacy, analyzing and assessing reasoning and identifying obstacles to rational thought, this course will initiate strategies that enable students to ask essential questions and effectively grasp the logic of a subject or discipline, particularly teaching content through thinking rather than content and then thinking.
