    How in the World?: Getting Students to Think Critically
    Practical Approaches and Successful Practices

    DATE: Friday, October 24, 2008
    LOCATION: Loyola College Graduate Center (Timonium Campus) - Timonium, MD
    On October 24, 2008, United Nations’ Day, we ask the question, “How in the World … do we get our students to think critically?” College faculty and librarians interested in the goal of improving students’ critical thinking skills will have an opportunity to share their best practices and learn from colleagues about this aspect of pedagogy central to all teaching and learning.  Presenters at the MILEX Conference 2008 will share techniques, lead exercises, and illustrate classroom applications.

    MILEX (Maryland Information Literacy Exchange), a new and growing organization of academic and instruction librarians, invites proposals from those interested in presenting at this conference.  The MILEX Conference Committee is striving to construct an experience for academics that will be heavy on specific models and practical information for instructors to use in sparking their students’ critical faculties.  The aim of this conference is to offer sessions that model the integration of critical thinking skills into lessons and collaborative projects between faculty and librarians.
