Booklets

The Quest for Critical Thinking is a free compilation of essays -- in print-on-demand format -- on how colleges seek to promote and measure critical thinking by their students.

This booklet is part of a series of such compilations that Inside Higher Ed is publishing on a range of topics.

On Tuesday, September 23 at 2 p.m. Eastern, Inside Higher Ed editors Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman will conduct a free webinar to talk about the issues raised in the booklet's articles. To register for the webinar, please click here.

This booklet was made possible in part through the advertising support of ETS.
