The purpose of this paper is to summarize the how one university created a successful faculty professional development program that offered training and support on how to develop student critical thinking skills. Selected literature related to building student critical thinking skills through online environments are reviewed. Participants attending this presentation will receive an overview of the professional development program and the incentives offered. In addition, information on the Paul & Elder model will be summarized, as it was used in the program. Furthermore, this report will provide at least 3 examples of instruction from online courses at one south-eastern university that reflect the use of the Paul & Elder model for developing critical thinking skills for both undergraduate and graduate level online courses. The participants will be able to use the examples presented for developing online instruction to build student critical thinking skills.
