In late March, I visited with Professor Clarizio’s Principals of Marketing class. Guest Speaker John Chuhran of NASCAR (National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing), was already speaking when I got there a few minutes late (sorry!), but I quickly caught up with the presentation.
I was delighted to be invited to observe Professor Jyoti Ruta’s Seminar on Critical Thinking, a senior seminar course. Every Tuesday, this class participates in a “fishbowl dinner party”, by being assigned to a topic with specific talking points and are provided with extensive research materials that give them all materials necessary to conduct a conversation. Groups of 4 or 5 take turns covering various portions of the materials.
