Faculty from various universities will collaborate to advance the field of argument mapping, which is a method of visualizing argument structure that has many promising applications for reading, writing and critical thinking skills. A growing body of research from top universities shows that argument mapping improves students’ writing and analytical reasoning abilities. As such, this method is gaining increasing attention and adoption among faculty who teach philosophy and critical thinking. This seminar will convene leading experts in this relatively new field to pursue several projects that we hope will make it easier for our colleagues to start teaching argument mapping in their classrooms.
