The facts we learn (and that we teach students) have a half-life, gradually eroding into obsolescence. The most important aim of education is teaching how to ask the right questions rather than memorizing facts in order to make students adaptable critical thinkers for the future. This presentation will address the educational application of “deep structure” learning, particularly with regards to critical thinking, research, and information literacy skills.
