This method uses argumentation (critical thinking + discourse) to deepen student learning. It pushes students to defend their thinking and reasoning, and in the process, become more aware of their misconceptions and biases. It’s been tested and shown to be effective in STEM courses, especially in K-12 classrooms. This learning community will explore its feasibility and effectiveness in higher ed.
