Philosopher's Corner

Lakeland Library's own William Davenport presented at the Next Conference at The University of Akron on September 30th, 2022. Along with working at the library, William is a part time faculty member who has been a fixture in Lakeland's Philosophy Department for 20 years. William's co-presenter was Karen Knaus, a part-time faculty member in Lakeland's Chemistry Department. Please see an abstract of their presentation below.

Vizcritmaps: Fostering Students to Share How They Think Critically and Connectively in a Visual Format   

William D. Davenport, Lakeland Community College and Karen J. Knaus, Lakeland Community College

Visual critical-thinking maps (VizcritMaps) can be used in the classroom to engage students to think logically and connectively about learning content. This interactive presentation and workshop will engage participants in the learning process of collaborative mapping to answer a complex question together. The VizcritMaps allow students and teachers to logically categorize new concepts and ideas in a connected visual format so they can share how they think with others.
