Reflections on CCT at the University of Wyoming

Alyssa Konesko has participated actively in programming for teaching critical and creative thinking since the ECTL established its Critical and Creative Thinking (CCT) Division in Spring 2018. The division lead, Meg Van Baalen-Wood, collaborates with various instructors across the university, including Rick Fisher (LeaRN) and TK Stoudt (Veterans Services Center), to design and administer CCT programming. Alyssa has both shaped and been shaped by UW’s rapidly growing CCT community. Check out Alyssa's full reflection here!
