Getting students engaged in subject matter is often a challenge. Getting them to go the extra step to think critically can prove even more daunting. Fieldwork can help students develop critical thinking and research skills which are applicable across disciplines. This session will address ways to teach students about various fieldwork techniques prior to engaging them in location-based experiences, and how use of those techniques improves students' ability to think critically about key course-related topics.
