Teaching Critical Thinking in Psychology features current scholarship on effectively teaching critical thinking skills at all levels of psychology.

It provides new course delivery formats by which faculty can create online course materials to foster critical thinking within a diverse student audience, placing specific emphasis on how to both teach and assess critical thinking in the classroom, as well as issues of wider program assessment.
