Dr. Natasha Robson
Integrating Critical Thinking into your Classroom
2.45 - 3.45pm
Dr Natasha Robson has worked in a variety of teaching and education contexts for over ten years. The 'useful' part of her doctoral work was the development of a 'cognitive approach' to critical thinking, teaching and learning. The approach is the product of a combination of her own classroom experience (recognising the enormous amount that is expected of teachers) and a deep interest in the brain and the mechanics of thought. She is currently writing a book and resources for teachers that will support the development of critical thinking in their learners, targeting, amongst other areas, how to address mis and disinformation.
