One of my earlier experiences was teaching critical thinking at the University of Alberta Hospital School of Nursing. So it has long been evident in nursing schools that graduates need to have the capacity to reflect on practices and to adapt to changing circumstances. Tom Carey suggests the same framework could be applied to the teaching profession itself (and I agree). "Ultimately, we’ll have to tackle the need for faculty members – and our other educators – to be effective models as ‘critical friends’ of changes in workplace practices." Image: Nurse Killam.
