UWSP expert to discuss critical thinking

Metro Wire Staff

Critical thinking is increasingly important as our world becomes more complex.

The public is invited to learn more about how UW-Stevens Point is working to integrate purposeful critical thinking instruction throughout its curriculum in a free lecture offered by the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.

“The Critical Function of Critical Thinking” will be held at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 9, presented by Dona Warren, professor in the UW-Stevens Point Department of Philosophy.

The presentation will be held in the Pinery Room of the Portage Co. Public Library, 1001 Main St., and is the seventh in the eight-part Community Lecture Series for 2018-19.

The discussion is free and open to the public.

Warren received her undergraduate degree in mathematics from Minnesota State University Moorhead, and her Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Minnesota. She comes from a long line of educators and is interested in anything having to do with teaching. She has a special passion for issues surrounding the teaching of critical thinking and symbolic logic.
