In the Socratic Tradition: Essays on Teaching PhilosophyFaculty Books and Monographs
DescriptionChapter 16: A Participatory Approach to Teaching Critical Reasoning, authored by Rory J. Conces, UNO faculty member. This practical guide for teaching philosophy brings together essays by two dozen distinguished philosophers committed to pedagogy. Addressing primarily practical issues, such as how to motivate students, construct particular courses, and give educational exams, the essays also touch on theoretical issues such as whether moral edification is a proper goal of teaching ethics. An excellent sourcebook for graduate students just learning to teach as well as for professors searching for new strategies and inspiration or called upon to teach courses outside of their specialties.
