The Foundation for Critical Thinking, international authority on critical thinking, is pleased to announce that Ralph Nader will be honored as Bertrand Russell Scholar for the 34th International Conference On Critical Thinking And Educational Reform. Mr. Nader is being recognized for his seminal contribution to a rich conception of the public citizen and his unflagging advocacy on behalf of the public interest. All conference attendees are invited to the Russell Scholars program featuring Ralph Nader.
The International Conference On Critical Thinking And Educational Reform will be held:
When: July 28th - 31st 2014
Where: Berkley, CA
The conference offers sessions for educators and citizens throughout the world, who are interested in improving their ability to reason through complex issues as public citizens and in all parts of life. This annual conference provides a unique opportunity for you to improve your understanding of critical thinking, as well as your ability to more substantively foster it in instruction and all aspects of work and life.
Critical thinking is as essential to thinking like a skilled public citizen as it is to thinking like a skilled educator, administrator, psychologist, historian, scientist, doctor, parent, student…as it is to thinking well within any domain of human thought or through any important issue.
The Center and Foundation for Critical Thinking have together hosted critical thinking academies and conferences for almost 35 years. During that time, they have advanced the principles and best practices of fairminded critical thought in education and in society.
Focal session speakers include: Ralph Nader, Dr. Richard Paul, Dr. Linda Elder, Dr. Gerald Nosich, and Dr. Rush Cosgrove.
