Workshopping Critical Thinking skills and tools

Critical Thinking is increasingly expected of university students. But what does Critical Thinking actually mean?

In this interactive video, Dr Sarah Ivory introduces the three aims of critical thinking:

Quality of Argument

Strength of Evidence

Clarity of Communication

Sarah shows how she uses argument maps (a framework for critical thinking) and gives you the opportunity to practice them yourself.

Students of all levels and disciplines will find this session valuable.
