Brought to you by The Critical Thinking Institute (theCTInstitute.com), Headagogy disrupts the soft-spoken, NPR-mold for education discussion and does justice to the vibrant, challenging, meaningful, frustrating, empowering, complicated, fulfilling thing that is education, as well as the hardworking, dedicated, heartfelt, and (too often) pissed-off people who are educators. Ferociously serious, chronically sardonic, intolerant of anti-intellectualism, and fed up with disrespect for education and educators, Headagogy is hosted by Steve Pearlman, Ph.D., founder of The Critical Thinking Institute, author of America’s Critical Thinking Crisis, and educator of 30+ years.

How can we -- and why should we -- move students to think about disciplinarity? Are colleges promoting the thinking of which Newman advises students? And how can they benefit from his ideas regardless?

    ChatGPT - A Loaded Blessing In Disguise?

    ChatGPT - A Loaded Blessing In Disguise?

    Is ChatGPT friend or foe? Should the whole world, as Australia has done, relegate essay writing to inside classrooms? Is "the academic essay dead"? Or is ChatGPT, as some have contended, a tool for critical thinking that we should embrace as a new ally in teaching students?As Steve discusses, ChatGPT certainly is a revelation, but no one is really talking about why, and it might not be what you expect.

I Five-Star-Hate this podcast!

So much great information with an engaging host and excellent guests. So why do I “hate” it? I’m driving along, I hear an interesting strategy or concept, I immediately start thinking of ways to implement with my nursing students, and Bang! I’ve missed 5 minutes of more excellent information, and have to rewind! Thank you!
